Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes (iMM) opens a call for one
research fellowship with the funding support from pela European Molecular
Biology Organization under the project Installation Grant IG4448 – “Mechanisms
of tissue ageing and repair: roadblocks to stem cell-based therapies”
Work Plan and Objectives: The selected candidate will work in the Neves and
Sousa-Victor labs at the iMM. Research in the lab is focused in understanding
the effects of aging in tissue repair capacity. We study stem cell intrinsic
alterations that occur during the aging process and immune modulatory
strategies to optimize tissue repair capacity in older organisms. The project
will involve analysis of animal models, optimization of stem cell delivery in
old animals as well as tackling mechanistic aspects of the process of tissue
repair in ageing.
Predicted start date, duration and renewal conditions: The fellowship contract
is predicted to start in November 1st, 2021, for a period of 4 (four) months
on an exclusive basis, eventually renewable until the maximum stipulated in
applicable regulations, not exceeding the eligibility period of the project,
