About the Position

In the project, you will work on a bleeding disorder called inherited factor (F) VII deficiency. FVII is a vital protein in the blood coagulation process and an inherited deficiency of this protein is caused by mutations in the F7 gene leading to severely reduced activity of the FVII protein in the blood. Clinically, these patients experience frequent and sometimes severe bleeding episodes, and the only treatment today is replacement therapy that is expensive and invasive. We are using CRISPR gene editing and advanced cell reprogramming techniques to correct the mutation in the patients’ own cells and establishing transplant procedures in mice models to restore FVII activity and function. These important pre-clinical studies will lay the foundation for cell-based therapies in patient with FVII deficiency.

You will work closely with an experienced researcher on the project and together you will co-supervise a PhD student. The position is over a three-years period.

The main purpose of the fellowship is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.
