Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Our main interests are in the field of rheumatic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and other autoimmune diseases. Prevention of bone and joint degradation in such arthropathies, and of the deterioration of autoimmune-mediated pathophysiologies are remains to be established.
What is the aim of the project?
We therefore aim to explore the pathogenic mechanisms, and to develop novel therapeutic strategies against these conditions.
What techniques and methods are used?
For this purpose, we utilize both in vitro and in vivo system using human and animal samples, applying multiple techniques that are unique, advanced and highly specific: proteomic and genomic analyzing system, cell culture system, cellular biology, molecular biology, immunology, and biochemical analyses, etc.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Specific methods for tissue engineering, omics analyses, etc.
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?
- No specific outcome is expected
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Biochemistry knowledge
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
