Fellowship & Grant details

Fellowship posted by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (19/04/2013 02.51)

Non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), ectopic fat, blood iron levels and vascular complications in patients with type 1 diabetes

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The main aim of this project consists in the disclosing of the connection between NAFLD and iron metabolism related parameters by measuring serum hepcidin (and other parameters) in patients with NAFLD affected by type 1 diabetes mellitus. We will also evaluate, by mass spectrometry (SELDI-TOF), proteomic profiling and differentially expressed peptides present in patients compared to healthy subjects or controls not affected by diabetes. Moreover we are going to test the conditions related to insulin resistance in presence of iron overload in cellular models.

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!
