The Immuno-endocrinology lab is looking for colleagues

We are looking for highly motivated master's students to work with us.

Vacant positionsInsulin folding environment and its relationship to variability in human population

Currently, we are seeking master’s students in molecular medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry, biology, or biotechnology interested in endoplasmic reticulum, protein chaperones and beta cell physiology and pathophysiology.

We will provide training in cutting edge research technologies including CRISPR technology, inducible knock-down with shRNA-lentiviral system, miRNA analysis and regulation, population sequencing and recreation of human variants of proteins.

Please do not hesitate to contact Assistant Professor Michal Marzec, or mobile +45 25520256 for more informaiton.

b-cell failure and microRNAs

We are seeking master students in molecular biology, biochemistry, medicine, or related field interested in interested in investigating diabetes pathogenesis. Master students will work on a separate part of the on-going project, investigating the possible involvement of microRNAs in the ability of histone deacetylase inhibitors to rescue b-cells from cytokine-induced apoptosis. A wide spectrum of techniques will be applied, including mammalian cell culture and human islets. Our group, led by Prof. Thomas Mandrup-Poulsen, has extensive background in investigating pancreatic beta-cell failure, and we are well equipped to explore new projects.
