DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFER
This TFM offer is aimed to explore the molecular mechanisms responsable for the progression of non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFL).
We will make use of animal models that recapitulate the progression of NAFL as well as in vitro cell systems to explore the interactions of the different liver cells (hepatocytes, Kuppfer cells, hepatic stellate cells) in the context of this disease.
