The Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) is one of five Swiss university hospitals. Through its collaboration with the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne and the EPFL, CHUV plays a leading role in the areas of medical care, medical research and training.
Our department of Medicine is one of the pillars of CHUV. It reunites the skills of 13 medical specialties and nearly 1, employees.
Moreover, it has solid expertise in taking care of patients suffering from multiple and complex conditions.
Its mission is to treat patients with the best medical, nursing, medico-technical and administrative skills during their stay.
We put a strong emphasis on training and research. Innovation and quality of treatments are at the core of what we do.
The research group (head : Prof. Dr. Patrizia D’AMELIO) investigates cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in aging and senescence with particular regards to the role of immune system and of mitochondria function in aging of the bone, muscle and brain.
Particularly, it will focus on investigating and modulating the molecular mechanisms regulating the interaction between gut microbiota, T cells and bone metabolism.
The experiments will be carried of ex-vivo and in-vitro
The work will include a variety of biomedical and immunological research methods (e.g. flow cytometry, cell biology, and molecular biology).
The opportunity to shape the project with own ideas and to start developing an independent scientific profile will be given and encouraged.
