A new position is available for a PhD thesis in the “Fluids and Barriers of the CNS- FLUID” team and “Brain interface exploratory facility” BIP at the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (France).

The project mainly aims at developing and characterizing an in vitro model of primate blood-brain barrier adapted to new generation drug delivery studies.

As a PhD student you will be in charge of optimizing the culture/coculture conditions, characterize the model for canonical barrier functions, responsiveness to pathological stresses, and for receptors that can be targeted for cerebral delivery of therapeutic proteins.
