We are very happy to have been selected by the ANR in 2021 to support our PARKA project!
The PARKA project proposes an integrated approach encompassing the entire spectrum of phosphate regulation, from its intestinal absorption to its local vascular effects and systemic role, in order to decipher its mechanism of action leading to the development of vascular calcification in the context of chronic kidney disease, and to identify therapeutic targets able to counteract its deleterious effects.
This is a 48-months project starting autumn 2021. For this project, we are recruiting a PhD student, so do not hesitate to contact us. We will work with three other research groups in Lyon and St Etienne.
