n. 1 scholarship funded by CIBIO – Centre for Integrative Biology to be carried out at the Armenise-Harvard laboratory of Cancer Biology and Genetics and directed to the topic: “In vitro and in vivo characterization of prostate cancer secretome and its roles in tumour progression and androgen deprivation resistance”. Principal investigator: dr. Andrea Lunardi http://web.unitn.it/en/cibio/38106/armenise-harvard-laboratory-of-cancer-biology-genetics
Scholarships on specific research topics:
1 scholarship funded by The Microsoft Research – University of Trento Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (COSBI), that requires specific competence assessed during the oral examination and reserved for the topic: “Modeling of human neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases from multi-source data types”.
In this project the candidate is expected to build algorithmic and network based model of molecular events associated with neurodegenerative/metabolic diseases relying on experimental data and public domain data. This study will help in understanding the molecular pathways altered in the disease and generate biological hypotheses on disease development and progression. The design and realization of the study will be done at COSBI (see http://www.cosbi.eu). Preferred skills: a master in Bioinformatics, Systems Biology or closely related disciplines with knowledge in data manipulation procedures is preferred. Some experience in neuroscience/metabolism will be a plus.
