Project Associate/ JRF Under ICMR Funded Project at IIT Mandi: Apply by July 26: Expired

Applications are invited for Project Associate/ JRF Under ICMR Funded Project at IIT Mandi for the year 2021. The last date of application is 26 July.

Online applications are invited for the post of a Project Associate-I (One-JRF) in a ICMR funded research project.

Project Title

High-resolution plasma proteomic and lipidomic analyses for fibrosis-related metabolic assessment in dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) patients in India: A Multi-Center based study.

Project details

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a clinical condition characterized by biventricular or left ventricular dilation and systolic impairment. DCM is one of the main contributors towards heart failure (HF) progression. Recent reports indicate that, deaths caused by DCM have been increasing in India in the last two decades.

Although about 10% of the disease load have been explained by genetic mutations; the heterogenic pathophysiology of DCM has remained largely unexplained. Genetic, epigenetic, inflammation and several other stimuli can culminate towards the dilation of left ventricle of the heart leading to DCM. Due to its heteronomous etiology, timely clinical diagnosis becomes very challenging.

Thus, there is a need for the discovery of new biomarkers of DCM in India. Currently, the state-of-the-art systems-biology based developments pose a new opportunity with extended capabilities for in-depth analyses of biofluids for the discovery of new biomarkers. This in turn will certainly improve the etiology driven personalized approach for clinical care in patients with DCM in India.
