Available PhD projects
Our research focuses on endocrine disorders that belong to the Finnish disease heritage. These monogenic disorders include APECED, Mulibrey nanism, Cartilage-hair hypoplasia and Diastrophic dysplasia. The clinical features vary but include short stature, abnormal immune functions, skeletal dysplasia, and hormonal abnormalities. We have several ongoing and new projects on clinical, molecular and genetic features of these disorders and would welcome 1-3 new PhD students. We are happy to give you more information on these clinical and translational projects.
