Together with Ben Terry at UNL and Keely Buesing at UNMC, we will investigate peritoneal microbubble oxygenation to treat acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
Prof. Borden will be presenting on “Design Rules for Acoustic Phase Change Agents” at the 89th ACS Colloids meeting next week in Pittsburgh, PA.
Josiah Willard Gibbs (1839-1903): “an American scientist who made important theoretical contributions to physics, chemistry, and mathematics. His work on the applications of thermodynamics was instrumental in transforming physical chemistry into a rigorous deductive science.”
He earned the first American PhD in engineering; his dissertation was entitled “On the Form of the Teeth of Wheels in Spur Gearing”…that’s right folks, classical component design!
Einstein called him: “the greatest mind in American history”
Among his many contributions: chemical thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, vector calculus and physical optics.
So, don’t ever let anyone tell you that mechanical engineers don’t do chemistry!
Our group was awarded a grant from the Office of Naval Research to investigate novel treatments of decompression sickness. This is a collaboration with the Naval Medical Research Center in MD.
Build an independent research career in beautiful Colorado while helping to translate ultrasound molecular imaging toward clinical application.
The Borden Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder is currently looking to hire a postdoctoral research associate in the area of ultrasound molecular imaging. The work will involve synthesis and characterization of targeted microbubble ultrasound contrast agents, use of a modified clinical ultrasound imaging scanner, and preclinical studies to assess tumor response to therapy. The successful candidate will also be encouraged to pursue other research projects of interest to build an independent research career. Additional responsibilities include general lab management and graduate student mentoring. Qualifications include a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering or similar field.
Applicants should contact Prof. Mark Borden by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Baohong Yuan in UT Arlington BME is a very creative optical imaging scientist/engineer. It was fun collaborating with his group on these FRET microbubbles:
Our friends at the University of Ulster and Oxford University recently produced this gem of an article on enhanced sonodynamic therapy to shrink tumors. We are honored to be a part of this team:
