Candidat(e) au doctorat recherché(e) pour une thèse portant sur le développement d'approche combinatoire en biomatériaux, nanophotonique et neuro-immunologie afin de développer des molécules anti-inflammatoires de nouvelle génération.
Briefly, neurological pain and inflammation are involved in many pathological conditions for which treatment faces clinical challenges. Here, we will be using nanophotonics-enabled drug delivery to effectively modulate inflammation and relieve pain in several disease models, including severe viral infection. Our approach uses a combination of biomedical engineering, nanotechnology, molecular and cell biology techniques to enable targeted drug delivery.
This is a collaborative project. Students should expect exposure to several different areas and will be able to develop in-depth expertise in at least two areas. Areas to be covered in the collaborative effort include biomaterials/nanomaterial design and fabrication, cell culture (specifically neurons), gene transfer, viral cultures, advanced microscopy, and animal models. The student will join the laboratories of Prof. Boutopoulos and Prof. Griffith at the Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Center (CR-HMR) and the laboratory of Prof. Talbot at UdeM.
