Biomechanics of Rat Ovarian cells Charactercized

Researchers characterize biomechanics of ovarian cells in mice according to their phenotype at early, intermediate, and late-aggressive stages of cancer

Using ovarian surface epithelial cells from mice, researchers from Virginia Tech have released findings from a study that they believe will help in cancer risk assessment, cancer diagnosis, and treatment efficiency in a technical journal:Nanomedicine.

By studying the viscoelastic properties of the ovarian cells of mice, they were able to identify differences between early stages of ovarian cancer and more advanced and aggressive phenotypes.

Applications are invited for a semiconductor industry funded studentship, to be filled by April 2011. This role will be based at the Centre for Bio-Inspired Technology within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and will use state-of-the-art facilities at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering. This is a truly interdisciplinary environment with laboratories for microelectronics, EDA CAD, and sensor characterisation, cleanrooms, anechoic chambers, prototyping workshops, biochemistry, bionanotechnology genetics, etc.

The outline of the project is presented below:

PhD or Post Doc positions for Mathematical models related to Toxicological risk in Sweeden

The Unit of Work Environment Toxicology seeks Post Doc / PhD candidates for development and application of advanced mathematical models related to toxicological risk assessment. The research will be carried out within three projects, namely:
– Development of PBPK models for nano particles
– Toxicokinetic population models as basis for biomonitoring
– Improvements in dose-effect analysis to refine and reduce animal experiments
A substantial part of the work relates to PBPK and Benchmark-Dose (BMD) model development and computer simulations of the toxicokinetic behavior of nanoparticles and biomarkers, as well as dose-biomarker and dose-response relationships. Collaboration with various other research groups is foreseen.

Time period: 2 years (post doc) or 4 years (Ph D student)
