The laboratory of Hepato-Gastroenterology is seeking a PhD student to work on the pathophysiology of alcoholic liver disease in alcohol dependent patients. The principal objective of the PhD is to investigate the role of the gut and the intestinal microbiome in the development of alcoholic liver disease in humans (gut-liver axis). 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.
