Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
To establish a venous graft model in Wistar rats for the study of morphologic adaptive response of those graft exposed to arterial circulation. We will use basic surgery techniques, and student will have the opportunity to practice microsurgical techniques. The aim of the project is to understand the morphologic response of the venous graft exposed to arterial circulation
What is the aim of the project?
Dertermine the morphological changes in the vascular wall to establish a therapeutical model.
What techniques and methods are used?
Dissection and micro dissection.
What is the role of the student?
- 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?
Written report for the end of the exchange.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Weekly preliminary readings and seminars.
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?
Basic anatomy knowledge
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
