MASTER THESIS STUDENT POSITION – BIAMET/NBTECH LAB

Elisa Cimetta BIAMET – NBTECH laboratories

Master Thesis student position available

A Master thesis student position is available in the laboratory of Prof. Elisa Cimetta to define how hypoxia influences physicochemical properties of exosomes produced by paediatric cancer Neuroblastoma (NB).
The research is funded by a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC StG 2017).

Current research in the lab is focused on the development of microfluidic platforms to test the effects of NB-derived exosomes on target cells cultures and to elucidate the molecular mechanisms/signaling through which the microenvironment shapes Neuroblastoma aggressiveness and progression.

The laboratories are located at the Department of Industrial Engineering (DII), University of Padua and at the Fondazione Istituto di Ricerca Pediatrica Citta’ della Speranza (IRP). The proposed activities will be developed at the IRP.

Students will be trained in advanced molecular, biochemical and cell biology techniques, and will work in a diverse team with engineers, biologists and biotechnologists.
