The programme offers a broad spectrum of training starting from basic sciences through clinical and applied sciences.
The project of synthesis of hormonally active peptides (peptide hormones, neuropeptides) supports the research for basic sciences. The recognition of the structure related to the biological actions synthesis of analogues, agonists and antagonists, may lead not only to the recognition of the biological significance of the peptide, but may offer new therapeutical approaches.
The animal experiments would involve the regulation of secretion and synthesis of hormones – mainly the involvement of the peptides in the central regulation of the endocrine system. The effects of hormones on brain function cover the action on such basic physiological activities as learning, memory, food and water intake, locomotion anxiogenesis-anxiolysis etc. Role of neuropeptides under such pathological activities, as alcohol and narcotics dependence and tolerance.
In the clinical field, a number of biologically active peptides have been revealed with still unclarified, putative physiological roles in the regulation of hypophyseal hormone secretion.
Alcoholism creates a burden to a major proportion of the population. A variety of hormonal dysfunctions are to be expected under acute and chronic alcohol abuse.
Hirstutism, seborrhea and alopecia of women and the diseases of the prostate cause much suffering of a number of patients. Via the study of steroid metabolism in the target organs of androgens, the pathomechanism and new therapeutic methods may be approached.
The gastrointestinal endocrinology would include studying the synthesis, storage, release, transport and neurocrine mode of action of gastrointestinal hormones. The information obtained from these studies enables to understand the physiological and pathological basis of different gastrointestinal disorders and opens new perspectives in the therapy of gastrointestinal disorders.
