D.J. Loureiro Ramada MSc MRes (David)

PhD Candidate


Currently working as a PhD candidate, inserted in the project "NODIAL - development of NOvel membrane DIALyzers for portable/artificial kidney devices".


Continuous hemodialysis via portable/wearable artificial kidneys could further enhance the removal of uremic toxins, enhancing patients overall health when compared to traditional processes. In this project, two laboratory scale hollow fiber dialyzers for outside-in filtration comprising of a single layer membrane and a dual layer mixed matrix membrane will be developed. Their performance concerning toxin removal from human blood plasma and blood compatibility will be compared to current solutions used in the clinic.
