PhD position in Immunology

 A PhD student position is available at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Iceland to study resolution of inflammation and especially the role of neutrophils in resolution of inflammation.       

Resolution of inflammation is important as chronic inflammation is a causative factor in many diseases. We have shown that dietary omega-3 PUFA may enhance resolution of inflammation and also that NK cells play a crucial role in antigen-induced inflammation. The PhD project will focus on the potential role of neutrophils in resolution of inflammation.
