The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy in the Cardiovascular Diseases Research Group - ITN INSPIRE Project for a PhD student - Early Stage Researcher (ESR) in the field of Medicine, Pharmaceutical or Biomedical Sciences (ESR14 ‘Chemotherapy-induced functional myocardial alterations: is a HFpEF stage preceding HFrEF?’)
About ITN INSPIRE
The vision of INSPIRE (www.inspire-safety-pharmacology.eu) is to advance and “inspire” Safety Pharmacology by exploring new technological capabilities to addressing emerging cardiovascular safety concerns. Hereto, INSPIRE unites expertise from academic teams, technology-providers, pharmaceutical companies, regulators and hospitals to create a European training platform for 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Key innovative aspects of INSPIRE include: i) in vitro humanized cardiomyocytes assays, ii) unparalleled in vivo hardware/software solutions, iii) in silico predictions of haemodynamics, iv) mass spectroscopy imaging of drug exposure, v) exploration of mechanisms of late-onset CV toxicity, as observed in cardio-oncology, and vi) early integration of feedback from industry and regulators. Overall, INSPIRE constitutes a multidisciplinary and intersectoral training programme with a balanced combination of hands-on research training, intersectoral secondments, local courses and network-wide events on scientific and transferable skills, enabling future R&I collaborations. Hence, INSPIRE will equip the future generation of SP scientists with a wide range of scientific knowledge and the ability to adapt to a dynamic industry.
