Investigador Postdoctoral en el projecte Whole-Brain Dynamic fMRI Biomarkers for Monitoring the Evolution of Huntington’s Disease

L'investigador treballarà en l'objectiu general de descobriment del biomarcador del projecte basat en dues estratègies analítiques complementàries, específicament:

  1. Aproximació de temps variable sense models
  2. Aproximació basada en models que varia el temps

Les tasques se centren a:

  1. Revisió de literatura i familiarització de dades
  2. Parcel·la les dades preprocessades de la IRMf
  3. Identificació de biomarcadors sense models (derivat de variacions dinàmiques espaciotemporals del senyal d'estat de descans de la IRMF) per estratificar grups i seguir trajectòries individuals a través de la progressió de la malaltia.
  4. Identificació de biomarcadors derivats d'estratègies de modelatge de tot el cervell per entendre els mecanismes subjacents de la dinàmica cerebral anormal en HD.
  5. En silico simulacions de diferents règims d'estimulació per forçar transicions d'estats cerebrals malalts a més saludables.

Postdoctoral Project Researcher on irreversible electroporation

In the framework a collaborative project with industry, the Biomedical Electronics Research Group (http://berg.upf.edu) at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position to carry out research on the assessment of photonic methods for monitoring irreversible electroporation in tissues.

We have access to a novel photonic technology able to monitor changes in tissues in real time. We want to explore the use of this technology for monitoring cardiac electroporation and we want to build a solid understanding of the cardiac electroporation phenomenon and how it translates to photonic observations. Research activities will include design and participation in acute and chronic animal studies, in vitro experimentation and numerical modeling studies.

Cardiac electroporation is now being developed as a cardiac ablation modality. Cardiac ablation is a common therapeutic option for managing arrythmias in patients not responding to antiarrhythmogenic medication. The two most common cardiac ablation modalities, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cryoablation have high success rates. However, both modalities are accompanied by potentially fatal complications such as, for instance, severe esophageal injury leading to an atrio-esophageal fistula. Clinical complications and technical and practical limitations of both techniques are mostly related to their thermal nature. Therefore, non-thermal alternatives are of great interest. And, in the last years, irreversible electroporation, known in the cardiac field as ‘Pulsed Field Ablation’ (PFA), has gained the attention of major medtech companies.
