Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
In the study of the pathophysiology of intestinal ischemia-reperfusion is essential identify and know how the tissue response to the injury. In this project we will work with rats and study the modification of some serological markers and the cells of the enteric nervous system, when an ischemic-reperfusion injury was done.
What is the aim of the project?
Describe the compromise of the enteric nervous system in the event of interruption of the flow
What techniques and methods are used?
We will use the Chiu´s classification for grading the histopathological damage. We will use immunosorbent assays (ELISA) kit for determine the level of serological markers and We will use the indirect immunofluorescence staining to perform cells fixed on slides and examine under a fluorescence microscope. Also we will quantify the blood flow in the arteries and veins of the gut
What is the role of the student?
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Written report by the end of the exchange
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Preliminary lectures
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a scientific report
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
