Mechanism(s) of disease progression in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a condition slowly progressive to steatohepatitis, fibrosis and cirrhosis, requiring a systematic surveillance of the affected population. In our SSD of Metabolic diseases & Clinical Dietetics we follow a large cohort of NAFLD patients, recruited during a FP/2007 project ending in the next few months. These patients are periodically controlled using a series of clinical/instrumental procedures to pick up the early signs of hepatic deterioration (Liver ultrasounds+Fibroscan, liver function (APRI test, NASH score), quantitative evaluation of peripheral and hepatic insulin sensitivity (OGIS, HOMA, mathematical modeling), cardiovascular risk (IMT, Ecocardio)).
The research grant will provide an opportunity to train a researcher on the most recent methods to score these patients, and to develop new tests according to future developments.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
