UNIVERSITÉ PARIS DESCARTES
Université Paris Descartes offers postdoctoral positions on the following themes
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.
