Postdoc and Graduate Research Assistant Positions Available
The Terry Research Lab is looking for strong Postdoc and GRA candidates in the area of Biomedical Engineering.
Postdoc compensation is $55,000/year with benefits (including partial tuition benefit).
GRA compensation is $1,800-$1,900/month depending on experience. Tuition remission and partial health insurance benefits are included for graduate students.
Project goal: Develop & validate a peritoneal microbubble oxygenation system.
Project description: NSRI/NU will develop and validate proof-of-concept peritoneal microbubble oxygenation as a mitigation strategy for Acute Respiratory Distress System (ARDS). Previous studies have demonstrated this technology has potential to provide a simple and inexpensive therapy to mitigate pulmonary failure on a mass scale. The technology provides rapid oxygen delivery without anticoagulants, which can be problematic in traumatic injury cases. A portable system could provide sufficient levels of blood oxygenation to enable survivable transportation from remote and far-forward environments to field and rear-area hospitals. Before this portable system can be developed into a prototype, additional studies are needed including engineering scale-up production of oxygen microbubbles (OMB), validation of the treatment in multiple injury models, and studies in large animal models.
