2012 PhD Student Position in Experimental Surgery at Uppsala University, Sweden

: The main task of the PhD student will be to identify the key players in tumourigenesis of endocrine organs by genomic, genetic, epigenetic and proteomic analyzes. The aim is to provide insight into the processes resulting in neuroendocrine tumors (NET). The goal of the research is to look at various endocrine tumors, (mainly NET frpm the small intestine and adrenal tumors), to identify new biomarkers, new diagnostic markers, and enhance imaging protocols. Previous research has shown us that these tumors have some genetic linkage, our goal is to look further and deeper into this theory and attempt to solidify new genetic mappings that could lead to an eventual alteration in the treatment protocol of patients diagnosed with these pathologies.

We seek a highly motivated creative person with a strong interest in interdisciplinary research.

Scholarship Deadline: May 13th, 2012
