Post-doc " New model of hepatotoxicity using laser-guided tissue bio-printing " chez Servier

January 29, 2018

Vous trouverez ci-dessous les détails d'une offre de post-doc chez Servier :


Drug induced liver injury (DILI) is the leading cause of acute liver failure and post-market withdrawals. Modeling clinically relevant preclinical tools is a major challenge for drug development, and mainly for DILI prediction. Various liver models are available but most of them lack longevity and tissue-level complexity limiting their utility in predictive toxicology. The three-dimensional (3D) cell printing technology has emerged as one of innovative technologies that may help to overcome these limitations.



The objective of this project is to establish and characterize a novel bio-printed human liver tissue with human hepatic cell lines and non parenchymental cells in a defined architecture.


One part of this work will be to set the bio-printing conditions including the ideal architecture and number/type of cells allowing a better prediction of hepatotoxicity. Histologic analysis will be performed on bio-printed liver tissue and the cellular organization will be studied by IHC. This latter technic could also be used to estimate the presence of enzymes of phase I&II and transporters.

Then, bio-printed liver tissues will be treated with a panel of DILI and non-DILI compounds to assess their functional activity (e.g. metabolism) and their capacity to predict toxicity.





  • Ph.D. in biology

  • Previous experience in the field of hepatotoxicity

  • Ability to work in a multidisciplinary team

  • Scientific rigour and creativity
