Student projects in Evolutionary Medicine Ny
The microbes that live in us interact with each other and us - in the Microbial Evolutionary Medicine Group we study how this affects our health. Join us for an experimental or computational project!
Thesis: Gut microbiome brain axis communication in Anorexia
“Our vision is to radically improve treatment of Anorexia. Thereby, our mission is to challenge the current perspective of anorexia as solely psychological by identifying physiological factors influenced by the gut microbiome"
Master: Isolation and characterization of serotonin degrading bacteria in anorexia
A deficiency of 5-HT can modulate dopamine neurotransmission to elicit hyperactivity and psychosis in AN patients with a possible interaction with estrogen. Increasing evidence for a gut microbiota- brain axis connection in AN
Master’s Thesis projects within cerebrovascular physiology
Master’s thesis students are invited to join my laboratory from August 2022 to complete their education within Veterinary medicine, Medicine, Pharmacy, Molecular Biomedicine, Human Biology, or Biology.
MSc project in Viral Host Iinteractions
Phages (viruses of bacteria) are highly diverse, but largely understudied. They contain treasures of genes with unknown functions that have potential significant biotechnological value and are important in virus-host interactions.
Master thesis project concerning the blood-brain barrier in pigs
We invite thesis students to a project on basic molecular characterization of the blood-brain barrier in the cerebral vasculature of the pig brain. The thesis work should correspond to at least 30 ECTS and preferably 60 ECTS.
Which intracellular defense mechanisms protect E. coli against phage infection?
By characterizing a small but diverse E. coli phage collection, it is possible to investigate phage binding and infection and identify novel phage resistance mechanisms in E. coli using the ECOR collection.
Heterologous expression of plant membrane protein complexes in yeast
(or how to solve the “giant substrate problem”)
Optogenetics: creating light-switches for biological processes
In this project, we will try to generate a yeast-based optogenetics system to study the function of proteins called lipid flippases.
