11 PhD Positions on "Adipocyte-Brain Crosstalk", University of Lübeck
The DFG-funded Graduiertenkolleg 1957 studies the effects of adipose tissue hormones on CNS function and, in turn,
the control of adipose tissue physiology by the brain. We are looking for highly motivated candidates for the
following PhD projects. Tentative start: May 2017.
Identification of leptin transporters at the blood-brain barrier (supervisor: Markus Schwaninger)
Effect of adipokines/cytokines on HIF-1 regulated astrocyte glucose metabolism (Olaf Jöhren)
