The University of Luxembourg has the following vacancy in the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB, http://wwwen.uni.lu/lcsb). The LCSB is accelerating biomedical research by closing the link between systems biology and medical research. Collaboration between biologists, medical doctors, computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians is offering new insights in complex systems like cells, organs, and organisms. These insights are essential for understanding principal mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and for developing new tools in diagnostics and therapy.
The National Centre of Excellence in Research on Parkinson’s disease is a recently launched 8-year program, which involves all national actors in biomedical research in Luxembourg. One long-term objective of program is to recruit and analyze a cohort of PD patients from Luxembourg and clinical centers in neighboring countries to help identify predictive and progressive biomarkers of the disease. Systems biological tools, in particular state-of-the-art computational modeling, will be used for biomarker identification. International partners in this program include the Oxford Parkinson’s Disease Centre, the Hertie-Institut für klinische Hirnforschung in Tübingen, the Paracelsus-Elena-Klinik in Kassel, and the National Institutes of Health in the USA.
