Though the CICERONE Program, our group is open to master and advanced undergraduate students for extending their scientific training through hands-on experience in our laboratory during the summer recess. In addition to carrying out a supervised research project, the students will also attend CNIC seminars.

The aim of the program is to give university students first-hand knowledge of biomedical research so that they can make more informed choices about the possibility of pursuing a scientific career.

To apply, you must register at CNIC website before 6 April 2018.

For the 2018 call, we are offering tehe following research project:

  • Role of p38MAPK in metabolic diseases: Metabolic syndrome is a medical disorder defined by the co‐occurrence of obesity, impaired glucose tolerance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. Stress activated protein kinases have been shown to control both obesity by itself and diabetes associated to obesity. These stress kinases are activated by several MAPK activated kinases (MKK). We want to investigate the role of MKK3 in this process and the molecular mechanism by which this kinase could affect diabetes.
