The La Jolla Bioengineering Institute is a research institution that specializes in research on diseases like arteriosclerosis, osteoporosis and Alzheimers. It is focusing on the diseases origin and treatment that are rooted in cell membrane mechanics. Other areas include high throughput flow cytometry, development of anti-inflammatory biomaterials, development of blood substitutes, microcirculatory physiology, nitric oxide biology and malarial pathogenesis. Its headquarters is based in San Diego, CA. It is a company in the Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, & Biotech industry. The La Jolla Bioengineering Institute is offering a postdoctoral position to perform research on the mechanisms of cerebral malaria in the P. berghei rodent model and the role of nitric oxide bioavailability. Most of the current research efforts are supported by multi-year grants awarded through the National Institutes of Health NIH. The heart of the Institutes research is to determine the role of mechanical forces in the normal physiology and pathology of blood vessels, bone, and muscle. The Institute uses an interdisciplinary approach which involves fluid and solid mechanics and molecular and cell biology to answer this fundamental question.
