2 FCT PhD Fellowships @ Otília Vieira’s Lab
Two project proposals suitable for application to FCT PhD fellowships, under the supervision of Dr Otília Vieira and Dr André Marques from the Lysosomes and Disease Group.
Both projects aim to identify the molecular mechanisms of lysosome malfunction and to understand how lysosome dysfunction affects cell homeostasis and contributes to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. More info by email Otília Vieira or André Marques.
2 FCT PhD Fellowships @ Duarte Barral’s Lab
Two projects suitable for application to the FCT PhD Fellowship 2022 call are available in the Membrane Traffic in Disease Group led by Dr Duarte Barral.
One project aims to uncover the molecular mechanisms of basal and stimulated skin pigmentation and the pathogenesis of skin pigmentation disorders, and the other the subversion of membrane traffic in breast cancer and melanoma aggressiveness. For further details, please send CV and motivation letter to Dr Duarte Barral.
