Students: We are always eager to have undergraduate and graduate students join our laboratory. Interested students should reach out to Dr. Bader.
Postdoctoral Scholar: Treatment of Chronic Thrombus with Histotripsy and Thrombolytics: Like ultrasound but hate clots? The Biomedical Acoustics Development and Engineering Research Laboratory seeks a postdoctoral scholar in the field of image-guided focused ultrasound therapies for the treatment of venous thrombosis. The overall goal of this NIH-funded project is to harness the physical mechanisms of histotripsy as an adjuvant to the thrombolytic drug rt-PA, or targeted rt-PA-loaded liposomes to treat chronic deep vein thrombosis. The scholar will conduct in vitro studies with high frame rate active and passive ultrasound imaging techniques to monitor bubble cloud activity initiated by the histotripsy source. In addition, the scholar will provide support for in vivo assessment of the approach. Further information on the project can be found here.
