The Clinical Research Centre and Department of Endocrinology, Diabetology and Internal Medicine at MUB conducts several research projects on the role of fat and muscle tissues in development of metabolic diseases. The following projects could be conducted by PhD students: a) The role of muscle tissue as well as visceral and subcutaneous fat distribution in development of metabolic diseases; b) The role of brown fat deposition and its activity in prevention and development of metabolic diseases; c) Searching for prospective and early biomarkers of metabolic diseases with the use of novel omics approaches. PhD students will learn how to interpret the data generated by iDEXa scanner (fat tissue distribution) and PET-MRI-hybrid (brown fat distribution and activity). They will learn how to perform indirect calorimetry and how to perform genetic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic analyses including sample and data treatment.
