Responsibilities/Job Description

We are searching for a motivated and talented postdoc to the thrombo-inflammation group headed by prof Bo Nilsson.The aim of the research project is to study and dissect the mechanisms behind activation of the cascade systems of the blood, ultimately leading to thrombo-inflammation, which occur upon contact between different therapeutic entities such as liposomes, nano-particles, cells or cell clusters and human blood, and to develop strategies to control such adverse reactions. The experimental systems include, but are not restricted to, incubation of liposomes of different composition and with diverse surface coatings in human blood and quantification of the resulting activation reactions by different immunoassays e.g., ELISA, western blot analysis, immunohistochemistry, and FACS.
