UNIVERSITÉ PARIS DESCARTES


Université Paris Descartes offers postdoctoral positions on the following themes


1/Therapeutical Angiogenesis

Insufficient organ perfusion due to impaired neovascularization is an integral component of tissue remodelling and loss of organ function after ischemic injury. Therapeutic angiogenesis is viewed as a highly promising strategy to ensure revascularization of ischemic tissues by promoting the growth of new vessels or the maturation of pre-existing ones. The project aims to identify the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in post-ischemic neovascularization, using mouse models of hindlimb ischemia, and to develop cell- and non cell-based approaches to stimulate angiogenesis in order to improve organ function.

Candidates must have expertise in molecular biology.
