Sted

København og omegn

The human body is home to trillions of microorganisms, consisting of a diverse range of different communities, all playing a crucial role in your health and behaviour. Here at the Bacterial Synthetic Biology group, we are working on sensing, responding and manipulating the gut environment to treat metabolic diseases. Through introducing engineered probiotic microbes, we can deliver therapeutic drugs at the site of the disease. However, we are missing a system to prevent the GMOs from spreading unintended outside the human host. The project will focus on developing different biocontainment strategies. The student will use molecular cloning techniques, biochemical assays and finally validate the strains in a mouse host.

We are looking for a talent student with high ambitions to carry out this study. Please respond to karhed@biosustain.dtu.dk with an attached CV and a short motivation. For further information about our groups work (headed by Morten Sommer) please visit http://www.savingtheworldwithscience.com.
