Regulation of inflammatory genes in arthritis, asthma and obesity
Finland (FiMSIC) - University of Tampere, Tampere
Professor Eeva Moilanen
Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Levels of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) are known to be elevated in many inflammatory diseases. The role of the student in this project depends on his/her skills and special interests in the field. The student may participate in the laboratory work (possibly run his/her own project), in processing of results and in literature survey.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of the project is to investigate the mechanisms involved in the regulation of iNOS expression.
What techniques and methods are used?
Basic techniques are used to measure RNA, protein, NO production and transcription factors involved in iNOS transcription.
What is the role of the student?
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
The student is expected to take part in our weekly laboratory meetings and in our bimonthly scientific meetings. Daily working hours may vary but are usually 8 hours a day.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Basic laboratory and computer skills are required. Student also needs to be fluent in english.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
