The newly established Research Training Group (RTG) “Inflammatory cues as modulators of early pancreatic carcinogenesis (InCuPanC) (GRK 2751)” is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. It aims to provide expert knowledge in pre-clinical and translational pancreatic cancer research.
Project A2 "Effect of intermittent fasting on obesity-induced early pancreatic carcinogenesis" leading by Prof. Martin Gericke is looking for highly motivated doctoral candidates for three years, starting on April 1st 2022. This project aims to unravel the effects of intermittent fasting on obesity-associated pancreatic carcinogenesis and evaluate the role of M2 macrophages in this process. The place of work would be the Institute of Anatomy at the Faculty of Medicine in Leipzig.
