Cardiac, vascular and renal regeneration: crosstalk between bone marrow and residence stem cells and cytokines tissue milieu

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The main aim of the project will be to understand the mechanism by which resident stem cells can be mobilized and/or can be activated after organ damage and to assess the role played by cytokines during cardiac, vascular and kidney regeneration and remodeling.

We will use two types of animal model: 1)Animal model for vascular remodeling and regeneration by substitution of aorta with patch;2)Animal model of renal ischemia reperfusion for kidney regeneration

In particular the project’s goals will be to assess the contribution of: a) adventia in vascular remodeling b) homing of stem cells from the bone marrow to the site of injury; c) activation of residence stem cell in vascular adventitia and in renal tubular district; d) paracrine effect of stem cells on regeneration and remodeling of cardiac, vascular and kidney organ; e) cytokines expression during cardiac, vascular and kidney regeneration.

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!
