Two PhD students to investigate the process of intestinal regeneration

Main duties:

The candidates will be involved in a research team focused in the study of the intestinal regeneration as a response to radiation injury. The team aims to develop treatments for cancer survivors who suffer side effects of radiotherapy including acute and chronic radiation-induced enteritis. In order to achieve this goal we will use cutting-edge technologies including: 3-dimensional imaging, organoid cultures, scRNAseq and quantitative lineage tracing. Candidates will work in the study of the acute and chronic phases respectively in order to first boost the intestinal regeneration in the acute phase and secondly to reduce the process of fibrosis during the chronic phase of the disease.

The successful candidate will join the group of Dr. Guiu, which belongs to the Program of Regenerative Medicine at IDIBELL.
