Description

PhD fellowship in “Renal auto-regulation in health and disease” from faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen offer creative and stimulating working conditions in a dynamic and international research environment. Our research facilities include state-of-the-art laboratories, core and computational facilities.

More Details

Description of the scientific environment  
This project integrates two research groups –  “Biophotonics and Biosimulation” and “Renal Hemodynamics”. They combine novel imaging and experimental techniques, advanced methods of data analysis and mechanism-based modelling to bring new insights into functional interactions between the key components of cells, tissues, and organs, as well as to study how diseases change these interactions. In particular, they develop new approaches for Raman spectroscopy and laser speckle imaging and apply them to study dynamics of vascular networks in kidney, retina, and brain in vivo. Their groups were the first who employed the concept of synchronization with respect to renal autoregulation.
Job description
