3-years PhD program KTH, Gene Technology. Position is funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks. ENHPATHY is a multidisciplinary science consortium created in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (MSCA)-ITN-ETN European Training Networks call and regrouping 12 academic and 3 non-academic European organisations in the continuum of basic, translational and clinical research on enhancers and associated diseases. In genetics, enhancers are short regions of DNA that can be bound by proteins to increase the likelihood that transcription of a particular gene will occur. If mutations within coding genes have traditionally been considered the major genetic cause of human disease, it is becoming increasingly clear that the genetic, structural and/or epigenetic disruption of enhancers and enhancer landscapes represent major etiological factors in numerous human diseases (i.e. enhanceropathies), ranging from rare congenital disorders to common diseases associated with ageing. The work will consist of developing experimental techniques towards better understanding of role of enhancers in complex diseases such as vascular pathologies.
