Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
The aim of this project is to evaluate the effect of dust-salt aerosols on an organism, as an example of the experimental animals at the molecular-cellular, organ levels and characteristics of the adaptive capacity of the organism. Methods: A high-performance liquid chromatography, macro and microscopic examination of sperm in experimental animals, identification of extracellular DNA and RNA, histone proteins in somatic and germ cells.

What techniques and methods are used?
- Implementation of seed dust and salt aerosols in experimental animals (white rats) - the study of scientific literature - - preparation of chemicals for the experiment - the slaughter of animals from the collection of biological material (biological fluids and organ tissue) - - macro and microscopic study of biological fluids in experimental animals - identification of extracellular DNA and RNA - histone proteins - - analysis of the study results - report writing - writing an article in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
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
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
- Implementation of seed dust and salt aerosols in experimental animals (white rats) - the study of scientific literature - - preparation of chemicals for the experiment
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
yes
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 poster
- The student will prepare a presentation
- The student will prepare a scientific report
- The student will prepare an abstract
- The student’s name will be mentioned in a future publication
- The student will have the opportunity to present the results together with the supervisor at a conference
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Next skillsare required: the skills to work with scientific literature, microscope, laboratory equipment (chromatograph, centrifuge, spectrophotometer, dispenser, etc.), chemical substances (acids, alkalis, corrosive substances). Skills preparation of experimental animals and working with body fluids.Students should have knowledge of molecular biology, anatomy, basics of chemistry (organic and inorganic), mathematical methods of analysis, biochemistry.There aren't any legal limitatons in the student
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
