Post-doctoral position (3 years) on Novel non-thrombogenic membranes for removal of middle-sized molecules and protein-bound solutes from bloodPosted by: University of Twente (UT)
Posted date: 2017-Mar-13
The Bioartificial Organs (BAO) group of the Faculty of Science and Technology (TNW), in the institute MIRA at the University of Twente has an opening for a post-doctoral position for 3 years on novel non-thrombogenic membranes for removal of middle-sized molecules and protein-bound solutes from blood.
NOVAMEM aims to develop a new generation of hemocompatible MMM consisting of new adsorbent particles able to efficiently remove a broad range of middle-sized molecules and protein-bound uremic solutes. The optimal hemocompatibility will be achieved by application of novel coatings. The membranes would be highly suitable for a portable artificial kidney device.
The NOVAMEM project consortium includes, the BAO, the Radboud University Medical Center, the Utrecht University medical Center, and two industrial partners, the Neokidney B.V and Aspen B.V.
