New NIH R01 grant

Feb. 22, 2020

The NIH National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) recently awarded our lab a 4-year $2.4 R01 grant to investigate the research and development of oxygen microbubbles for treating acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). ARDS affectes nearly 10% of patients that arrive to the intensive care unit, and the mortality...

J. Surgical Research Paper

Nov. 22, 2019

This original research article reports on a collaboration with Benjamin Terry from the University of Nebraska to test oxygen microbubble therapy in a rodent model of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Animals receiving peritoneal microbubble oxygenation (PMO) showed a clear survival benefit over controls.
