We are looking for a talented PhD student who is interested in studying how impairments in mitochondrial dynamics and function alter the metabolic profile and maintenance of muscle stem cells in patients with rare mitochondrial and neuromuscular diseases. Using metabolomic and transcriptomic approaches in patient muscle biopsies and blood samples, our goal is to elucidate the mechanisms by which mitochondria regulate muscle stem cell function and longevity in order to develop therapeutic strategies that enhance muscle regeneration in mitochondrial diseases. As a graduate student in our department, you will enjoy a superb research environment, an innovative clinical research area, and excellent opportunities to learn from basic and clinician scientists.

Highly motivated candidates interested in translational mitochondrial/stem-cell research and wanting to join our innovated team and contribute to advancing this exciting new research field are encouraged to contact Dr. Mireille Khacho PhD () and Dr. Jodi Warman-Chardon MD ().
