Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Laboratory of Experimental Medicine and Endocrinology at the Catholic Universityof Leuven, Leuven, Belgium for a project on 'The beta-cell in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes: role of endoplasmic reticulum chaperones in the interaction between the beta-cell and the immune system.'
Description
Prof Chantal Mathieu's research team focuses on the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes (T1D). Research areas of interest are in particular focusing on the special nature of the beta-cell, it's possible role in its own destruction and more recently the specific role of inflammation-mediated post-translational modifications in the generation of beta-cell neo-autoantigens. Also her lab is well equipped for performing preclinical studies making use of animal models in T1D and especially demonstrating the value of the vitamin D hormone as a natural immune modulator. Recently her team also brought antigen-specific therapies into a new dimension by oral delivery of antigens through genetically modified Lactococcus lactus bacteria. Recent research in the Mathieu lab has demonstrated that the endoplasmic reticulum chaperone GRP78 is translocated to the beta-cell plasma membrane and is post-translationally modified by citrullination upon inflammatory stress (Rondas D et al, Diabetes, 2014). The postdoctoral candidate will work further on this line of research, and will work in close collaboration with other PhD students, postdocs and technicians, under the direct supervision of Dr. Lut Overbergh. He/she will combine basic molecular work with cell biology, in vivo mouse work and immune approaches, to better understand the mechanisms involved in the interaction between beta-cell and immune system. An overview of our recent research in this area can be read in D'Hertog W et al. Mol Cell Proteomics 6(12), 2180-2199 (2007); D'Hertog W et al J Prot Res, 9(10), 5142-5152 (2010); Dunne J et al. Diabetes, 61(8), 1907-1914 (2012); Rondas D et al. J Prot Res, 12(9), 4193-4206 (2013); and Rondas D et al. Diabetes Epub ahead of print (2014).
Benefits
- 1 year postdoctoral position, with possibility of extension
Additional Job Details
