PhD fellow in the fields of Medical biology, Biology or Medicine Pediatric
Oncology and Pediatric Gastroenterology (Groningen), 38 hours per week

Job description
——————————
Towards better nutritional support for chemotherapy-induced intestinal
damage in children with cancer.
The long term cancer-free survival of pediatric cancer patients has
significantly increased during the past decades due to more intensive
chemotherapy treatment regimens. However, more intensive treatment has also
resulted in serious morbidity and even mortality. One of the side-effects is
mucosal damage (i.e. mucositis) in the gastro-intestinal tract, thereby
loosing the epithelium necessary for the normal functions of the GI-tract,
like the barrier function for bacteria and digestion and absorption of food.
In this research proposal we will study the digestion and absorption of
carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids using a mouse model of
chemotherapy induced gastro-intestinal mucositis using nutrients labelled
