Project

Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is the second leading cause of death after all cancers combined in Western society. The incidence of SCD is estimated to be as high as 400 000 deaths/year in Europe. Lethal ventricular arrhythmia such as ventricular tachycardia (VT) and ventricular fibrillation (VF) underlie the vast majority of unexpected sudden cardiac deaths (SCD).

Up to 70% of these SCDs are related to myocardial ischemia, infarction and subsequent heart failure as an underlying structural cardiac abnormality (ischemic cardiomyopathy, ICMP).

Moreover, theoccurrence of SCD varies in time similar to variations of blood pressure suggesting a pro-arrhythmic effect of fluctuations in afterload. We demonstrated previously in experimental models that an acute blood pressure increase resulted in an abrupt left ventricular pressure decline, which had a profound effect on myocardial mechanics with enhanced post-systolic shortening and coincided with induced transient depolarizations and pressure-induced premature beats (PIPB).

In this project we want to elucidate the mechanisms of the origin of PIPBs and toprovide evidence that these PIPBs arising from the myocardial infarct borderzone can trigger VA in ICMP. We hypothesize that the activation of stretchactivated non-selective cation channels and the mechano-sensitivity of Ca2+signaling are responsible for this mechano-electrical coupling and that the border zone of an infarct is a specific “area at risk” for the genesis of these PIPBs because of the increased strain on this region, increased oxidative stress and regional changes in cardiac innervation. With specific pharmacological tools, merging of cardiac activation maps with information derived from simultaneous MRI and PET imaging using specific tracers we will investigate the pathophysiologic and regional origin of these PIPBs as triggers for VA in ICMP.

The specific PhD project

The specific aim of this PhD project is to develop processing pipelines to combine extensive imaging and electrophysiology data into anatomically accurate models of the ischemic heart, suited for further use in computational analyses. Challenges are the multiple resolutions of the different imaging and electrophysiological data. The further development of a multiscale bi-ventricular model, with details of fibrotic tissue (from ex-vivo scans), innervation of the infarct border zone (from PET imaging), tissue deformation (from MRI or ultrasound), electrical activation from single beat non-contact as well as contact mapping, should allow for a comprehensive evaluation and provide insight into infarct border zone remodelling. Depending on progress further analyses will consist of simulating mechano-electrical feedback. Hereto, we will implement these models in existing dedicated cardiovascular modelling software. There will be a close collaboration with the basic and clinical PhD students for data gathering in an animal model of ICMP.

Profile

We are looking for a highly motivated young researcher with a Master degree (or equivalent) in Biomedical Engineering,Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computational Science, or related disciplines, willing to study and do research at the leading edge of biomedical engineering. Experience with computer sciences and having proven programming skills are important.

Candidates should have excellent teamwork and communication skills and should be enthusiastic about collaborating with a diverse range of local and international partners. We expect them to be fluent in English as this will be the language used to interrelate with the different partners.

On the basis of this project, a training plan will be set up by selecting the best training opportunities in the PhD program of KULeuven and available initiatives within our collaborator's labs. Physiology training will be organized depending on the needs and background of the researcher and the project and you are expected to join and lead discussion groups.

Our research group wants to focus on translational research integrating engineering/physics with physiology, working closely together with the academic clinical center. Therefore, our group provides methodologies and offers support for clinical and basic researchers to help to define the research approach from the basic understanding of the disease towards the clinical study; to select/design the appropriate investigational tools to assess the relevant physiological parameters; and to interpret the results and relate them to the pathophysiological knowledge. Therefore, willingness to invest into learning pathophysiology is a must.

Offer

We offer a 4 year PhD fellowship in an interdisciplinary and international academic environment.

Project

Our research group focuses on the neuro-immune interaction between the enteric nervous system and resident macrophages in the context of neurodegeneration in the intestine. We recently discovered a unique resident macrophage population residing in close proximity to enteric neurons with properties of microglia, i.e. they are long-lived, are of embryonic origin and have neuro-protective properties (De Schepper et al., Cell 2018). Depletion of these macrophages leads to loss of enteric neurons in the myenteric and submucous plexus with impaired secretion, dysmorphic submucosal vasculature and impaired intestinal motility. In the present project, supported by an ERC Advanced grant (starting in September or October 2019), these macrophages will be further characterised and their role will be studied in several disease models of enteric neuro-degeneration and tissue collected from patients, with the ultimate goal to identify novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

Profile

This position is open for highly motivated and excellent candidates graduated in Biomedical sciences, Pharmaceutical sciences, Bioengineering, Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology or equivalent degrees. The candidate should be graduated with at least distinction and has a strong interest in gastroenterology and/or immunology. He or she should be able to work both independently as well as in an international team.

Offer

We offer, starting from October 2019, a 4 year PhD research fellowship in a challenging and well equipped research environment with excellent facilities in one of the largest biomedical institutions in Belgium. We encourage the candidate to apply for an FWO scholarship (see www.FWO.be).
