1 PhD scholarship in Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks on pH and Ion Transport in Pancreatic Cancer (pHIoniC)

Scientific environment

This pHIoniC training network is financed by the European Commission Horizon 2020. The project is a collaboration between 10 academic and 3 industrial partners from 7 European countries. The consortium brings together highly synergistic expertise in the field of ion transport and cancer research.

Our focus is on pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), which is rising in incidence and is so far incurable. The programme’s central idea is that the unique pancreatic microenvironment contributes to disease development and progression. The programme has a strong grounding in the physiology of acid/base transport in the exocrine pancreas and it develops new concepts and tools in the cancer field and beyond. Jointly, pHioniC will map pH landscape in normal and diseased pancreas, characterize the impact of the acidic microenvironment on PDAC development and apply drug/nanocarrier/antibody designs for targeting of tumors. For further details of the network, please visit

pHioniC will provide training and collaborative network and structured PhD programme. The training will cover the fields of ion transport, oncology, imaging, bioinformatics and antibody technology, extensive transferable skills and personalized training elements.

Project abstractJV_description

Role of pH and ATP signaling in normal pancreas and PDAC

The normal function of exocrine pancreas is to secrete bicarbonate-rich fluid necessary for digestion. Our objective is to test the hypothesis that this process leads to acidification of extracellular pH, and together with ATP/purinergic signaling, favors micro-inflammation, epithelial transportome reorganization and PDAC development. Our aim is to resolve the dynamics and spacial resolution of pH changes and find the key proteins that are involved in intra- and intercellular signaling leading to tissue remodelling. Key candidates explored and pharmacologically tested include proton pumps, potassium channels and ATP sensitive purinergic receptors. Techniques employed will include live-cell/organ imaging, cell- and biochemical assays, multicellular organoids and orthotopic cancer models in mice.

Principal supervisor is Prof. Ivana Novak, Section for Cell Biology and Physiology, inovak (at), Phone: +45 353-30275
