New PhD project: Do you want to take part in the foremost research to understand how gut microbes affect disease development?

SDU, ALSION, and OUH, are looking for applicants for a PhD scholarship within the field of IBD, advanced microscopy, and pathology.

PhD project: High-resolution imaging of host-microbial interactions

Visualisation of microbes and host interactions using new advanced high-resolution imaging technology.

Project description

Many modern world diseases such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) involve an interaction between diet, gut microbes, and genetic risk factors. Understanding how these factors work together is key for improving prevention and treatment. Helium Ion Microscopy (HIM) is a new advanced technology that enables visualisation of microbes and human cells at high resolutions allowing for resolving fine structures, without the need for coating e.g. used in electron microscopy.

This project will combine confocal immunofluorescence microscopy with ultra-high resolution HIM to, for the first time, visualise the interaction between microbes and host-epithelium structures such as Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs).
