Project : Study of O-GlcNAc glycosylation of FoxO1 the betapancreatic Cell O-GlcNAc glycosylation of cytosolic and nuclear proteins constitutes a reversible post-translational modification, analogous to phosphorylation, which now appears as a major player in the regulation of cell signalling. This modification depends on glucose concentrations, allowing a regulation of protein activities
according to the metabolic environment of the cell. O-GlcNAc modification could therefore participate in the deleterious effects associated with chronic hyperglycaemia observed in diabetes (glucotoxicty) .

PhD Position in Neuroanatomy/Neuroscience

PhD Position in Neuroanatomy/ Neuroscience (3x2 years) (mandate 090/32/180)

Job description
The successful candidate will do research to get a PhD in Biomedical Sciences. Our projects are focused on neuroimmunological repair strategies after brain and spinal cord injury with special emphasis on the use of anti-inflammatory mediators to enhance functional regeneration. The successful applicant will be working on “the use of stem cells as carriers of pro-regenerative factors after spinal cord injury”. The project includes a rich spectrum of techniques such as cell and brain slice cultures, histology, molecular biology and behavior tests.
