The laboratory of Hepato-gastroenterology is seeking a PhD student to work on the pathophysiology of gut barrier dysfunction in human alcohol-associated liver disease. The principal objective of the PhD is to investigate the mechanisms and factors implicated in intestinal barrier disruption (e.g. microbial, epithelial and immune dysfunctions) linked to the development of alcohol-associated liver disease in humans. The project is translational in nature in continuity with our previous work on the topic and takes a primarily a bedside to bench approach. This implies working with patients hospitalized in a dedicated alcohol withdrawal unit as well as in vitro and animal studies in the laboratory to support and clarify findings in the patient population.
