Number of available positions: 1

Place of work: Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, PAS, Laboratory of Mitochondrial Biology and Metabolism

Researcher career profiles (R1-R4): R2
Field of science: biology

Type of recruitment: NCN 


Scope of tasks:

The main aim of the project (The role of oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) is to disclose the hepatic redox alterations and the specific end-points for mitochondrial dysfunction that represent a point of no return and which drive the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) towards Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) in a nonreversible manner. Moreover we plan to investigate whether the returning back to the standard diet and/or administration of a new class of mitochondrial-targeted antioxidants to mice with already developed NAFLD or during its progression to NASH will have beneficial effect on mitochondrial metabolism and ROS homeostasis in the liver.

The tasks will include characterization of mitochondrial metabolism, bioenergetics, ROS production, the status of the antioxidant defense system as well as the presence of markers of oxidative damages in the liver of mice at different time-points of NAFLD development and its progression to NASH.
