Student working on a research project.

Gut Microbiota And Renal Diseases

In my lab, we are studying the effects of gut bacteria (gut microbiota) on kidney function through performing both animal and human studies. My main interest is in establishing the association between certain bacteria and the increased risk of heart disease in kidney failure. I am looking for both those who are interested in joining the lab for a short period of time to gain the experience and improve their CV, and also those who are welling to spend a year or more in the lab.
