Post-doctoral position in neuromonitoring of premature born infants within the Horizon Europe project Prometeus

ICFO Medical Optics group led by ICREA professor Turgut Durduran is a partner in Horizon Europe project “Preterm Brain-Oxygenation and Metabolic EU-Sensing: Feed the Brain” (Prometeus). Prometeus will develop a metabolic model of the interaction between the three key brain fuels and their effect on regional cerebral blood flow (CBF), oxygen saturation (StO2) and metabolism (CMRO2).

The model will serve to individualize brain nutrition targeting “brain health” according to the inputs derived from novel minimally invasive metabolic sensing systems. ICFO will participate in all core tasks related to neuromonitoring of cerebral oxygen metabolism such as technology development, data acquisition, analysis and interpretation.
