A PhD studentship is accessible in the lab of Dr. Suresh Mishra to investigate the mechanisms included in the relationship between prohibitin and sex steroid hormones in adipose tissue homeostasis and metabolic regulation in the body.
The endeavor is centered on both experiments with transgenic mouse models and in vitro cell culture models. For additional info on this particular research theme please see our publications: Diabetes 2014; Oncogene 2016; Scientific Reports 2016; and Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism, 2016.
Preference will probably get to recently calibrated Masters’ pupil with foundation in physiology and biochemistry, or endocrinology. Successful nominees are likely to be experienced in fundamental biochemistry and molecular biology techniques. A past experience dealing with rodent models is a asset.
