Reaction of brain barriers to chemotherapy


   Faculty of Medicine

   Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Breakdown of the blood-cerebrospinal fluid (B-CSF) barrier localized in the brain choroid plexus is associated with many neurological disorders. However, relatively little is known about the underlying molecular mechanisms. Alteration of the barrier integrity and its involvement in the initiation and progression of neurological disorders need to be determined to get insights into treatment approaches. Our team focuses on studying the B-CSF barrier in pathophysiological conditions using in-vivo and invitro models and a combination of different techniques. The dissertation thesis aims to investigate the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the spread of inflammatory responses through the B-CSF barrier following chemotherapy and its subsequent neuropathy.
