The group is pleased to offer you the possibility to develop an ERASMUS stay in Biomedicall Research in an exceptional and unique clinical environment. This project fits into the European priorities of the Health challenge since it will contribute to improve the diagnosis and prevention of cardio-metabolic complications in type 2 diabetes (DM2). Our group CSIC in association with IIB-SantPau have technology platforms including cell culture and animal facilities, genomic and transcriptomics, bioinformatics, microscopy and Bio-banc that will facilitate the successful development of the project. Our expertise will contribute to improve your skills in experimental design, technical processing of samples, and analysis and interpretation of results. You will manage cellular and molecular biology, biochemical determinations, development of new experimental models, imaging-based measurements and immunohistochemistry and confocal microscopy experiments. Our active collaboration with biophysics will increase your knowledge on biophysical techniques useful to characterize the cardiovasculature from a complementary technical perspective. Our collaboration with experts in metabolism will allow you to handle metabolic-specific in vivo measurements such as fatty acid biodistribution, determination of fatty acid β-oxidation (FAO) activity, oxygen consumption (VO2) and CO2 production (VCO2). The wide variety of sources for experimental data will be a challenge for you to learn how to manage and integrate all parameters to obtain the maximum performance in each study. Meetings with basic researchers and clinicians will be key to interpret and extrapolate the findings to the clinical context. Our collaboration with biotechs will help you to be familiar with standardization processes required to prove the efficacy of new developed diagnostics and therapeutic tools. We invite you to become part of the team to make reality this translational project.
