    BACKGROUND

    This is a 3-year PhD position, that is part of a European Doctoral Network (DN) program entitled "Prostate cancer omics mediated intervention (PROMOTE)" involving 13 research centres from Germany, Greece, Austria, Portugal, and Spain.

    The PhD position is hosted at Delta 4 GmbH, Vienna, Austria.

    The PROMOTE Consortium / Background:

    PROMOTE focuses on the multidisciplinary education of doctoral candidates (DCs) in -omics and artificial intelligence (AI) mediated intervention to improve the clinical management of Prostate Cancer (PCa). PCa is the second most common malignancy, affecting ~1.3 million men every year worldwide. Tragically, there is a treatment paradox, as ~45% of PCa patients experience slow-growing cancer and are unlikely to progress rapidly, while PCa is not curable at an advanced stage. Evidently, clinical management of PCa is not optimal, as patients who do not require treatment are over-treated, while for those where immediate actions are required, efficient treatment is still needed. To fill the above gaps, PROMOTE was formed to educate DCs in emerging -omics and AI technologies and deliver:

    1. Novel non-invasive tools (based on biomarker- and AI- models) to guide intervention, and
    2. More efficient treatment options for advanced PCa (particularly metastatic) driven by molecular characterization of the disease phenotypes.

    PROMOTE brings together 13 leading centres from different disciplines, including 3 SMEs, 4 university hospitals with clinical laboratories, and 2 research institutes, and 4 universities, closely collaborating with a solid scientific background, as demonstrated by multiple publications.

    PROMOTE research builds on:

    1. Available biobanks and -omics datasets within the PROMOTE consortium, including >3000 urinary proteomics, >1100 imaging datasets paired with biopsy and pathology data, >350 paired RNA and proteomics urinary profiles, >100 tissue proteomics and ~300 phospho-, proteo-genomic and transcriptomics profiles from public repositories
    2. Established software and analytical protocols on -omics data integration, AI feature extraction and integration, systems biology, pathway enrichment, drug repurposing and in vitro testing, and
    3. Infrastructure to support hosting and training of DCs.

    The PROMOTE partner hosting the PhD student:

    Delta 4 GmbH is a Vienna-based TechBio company at the forefront of digital drug discovery and development. Delta4 leverages a proprietary computational analytics platform (Hyper-C), combined with biomedical testing and clinical validation of candidate drugs. Our unique approach integrates iterative big data/in silico and experimental screens, offering the most efficient matching of clinical indications and compound/drug effects. Our R&D process allows a fast track to clinical stage testing; our methodological core is tailored toward precision to increase the probability of success. Our focus is the repositioning of existing drugs for novel indications.

    With generating IP for such drug-disease combinations we establish a pipeline of clinically and economically attractive indications. Results of our lead program on the rare chronic kidney disease focal segmental glomerulosclerosis have been published recently (Transl Res. 2023 259:28-34 ; Kidney Int Rep. 2023 9(2):478-481). Previous computational data integration workflows have led to the identification of novel drug combinations in other tumor entities (Oncotarget. 2018 9(91):36379-36391; PLoS One. 2019 14(1):e0210859).

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    Objectives of the PhD:

    The overall objective of this PhD-project in PROMOTE is to consolidate omics profiles in the context of prostate cancer to generate network-based molecular models for the disease. Network alignment methods shall be used to identify compounds that show beneficial interference between disease pathobiology and drug mechanism of action. A particular focus will be placed on compounds that affect target molecules involved in synthetic lethal interactions within the context of tumor progression. The potential of identified compounds and compound combinations targeting synthetic lethal interactions will be tested in combinations with researchers from the Medical University of Innsbruck.

    Methods:

    The PhD student will mostly work on data analysis and statistical analysis using R or Python. There will be some interaction with the wet laboratory (in-vitro compounds testing).

    Expected Results:
    • Meta analysis of omics data in the context of prostate cancer

    BACKGROUND

    PhD position: Deciphering molecular mechanisms of acute kidney injury (AKI) to chronic kidney disease(CKD) transition – identification of biomarkers and potential druggable targets

    This is a 3-year PhD position, that is part of a European Doctoral Network (DN) program entitled "PersonalIzed medicine in Chronic KidnEy Disease (PICKED)" involving 10 research centres from France, Austria, Spain, Greece, Germany, Denmark, and Estonia.

    The PhD position is hosted at Delta 4 GmbH, Vienna, Austria.

    Delta4 is a Vienna-based TechBio company at the forefront of digital drug discovery and development.

    The PICKED Consortium / Background:

    Kidney diseases both chronic (CKD) and acute (AKI) should be considered as a priority, but also a challenge, for Public Health Policies as they concern >850 million persons in the world. The major urgent needs that have been identified over the last years include i) early detection in "at-risk" patients of CKD, ii) detection and prediction of CKD progression/complications, and iii) personalized treatment avoiding over- or unnecessary treatment, which collectively contributes to the adoption of Personalized Medicine (PM) in CKD.

    To address such ambitious challenges, it is essential to train professionals to identify these issues. Constituting a network of 10 PhD students, 6 public laboratories, 4 research and development companies, and several associated partners, the PICKED consortium will work on different aspects of PM aiming to significantly reduce the burden of CKD including: early detection of CKD and its progression; personalized drug and dialysis treatment and the social-economic impact of PM in CKD.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    Objectives of the PhD:

    The overall objective of this PhD-project in PICKED is to consolidate AKI and CKD omics profiles and generate network-based molecular models for the two disease entities. Network alignment methods shall be used to identify overlapping/interacting molecular mechanisms at the AKI-to-CKD transition. Key molecules of the identified molecular processes will be evaluated regarding their potential to serve as AKI-to-CKD biomarkers or drug targets taking into account information on tissue-specific expression, subcellular location, evidence in scientific literature, and mechanistic role in the context of dysregulated molecular processes. The prognostic potential of selected biomarkers will be evaluated in collaboration with the research group from Inserm, Toulouse.

    Methods:

    The PhD student will mostly work on data analysis and statistical analysis using R or Python. There will be some interaction with the wet laboratory (mass spectrometry, ELISAs).

    Expected Results:
    • Generation of the molecular landscape of the AKI-to-CKD transition
    • Identification of biomarker candidates linked to relevant AKI-to-CKD mechanisms
