Assessing mitochondrial function and inflammation in cancer-induced muscle atrophy Ny
Cancer-induced muscle atrophy, also known as cancer cachexia, is characterized by mitochondrial dysfunction and inflammation. Yet, whether these processes are linked or independent of each other in cancer cachexia remains unknown.
Ancient DNA from malaria Ny
In this Master thesis project, the student will use ancient DNA to study malaria in order to provide a first glimpse into the genetic makeup of past Plasmodium strains.
Open master’s thesis project in adipose biology and metabolic diseases Ny
The Gerhart-Hines Lab have identified a group of metabolites that accumulate in activated brown fat. Can you identify the physiological function of these metabolites?
Women’s experiences with management of pregnancy-induced hypertension & diabetes in Nepal Ny
The study will investigate women’s experiences, perceptions, and behaviours toward pregnancy-induced hypertension and diabetes and their management in rural Nepal.
Are you a master’s student and interested in molecular biology and obesity? Ny
Understanding the defense against weight gain is an important task to solve in modern metabolic research. Can you help identify these mechanisms - and thereby potentially lay the foundation for new drugs against obesity?
Proteomic analysis of heart failure samples Ny
Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is the new black in cardiology. You will analyze protein expression data from atria and ventricles from a mouse model of HFpEF.
Cardiac ischemia perfusion and the effect of hyperkalemia Ny
After acute myocardial ischemia, reperfusion is associated with hyperkalemia and a large risk of cardiac arrhythmia. Does the high potassium contribute or reduce the risk of cardiac arrhythmias?
Defining a new era in anti-hypertensive therapeutics Ny
This project has the potential to change our understanding of hypertension-related autophagy in vascular smooth muscle, which may pave the way for precision therapeutics to treat hypertension.
Oxidative stress, atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias Ny
Oxidative stress is proarrhythmic, but what is the mechanism?
