Artificial Lung on a Chip
Supervisor: K. Gottschalk
Goal of the project is to combine an artificial lung-on-a-chip with a strain sensor. The project will have the following goals:
- building a lung-on-a-chip with optimized rigidity for mimicking and analyzing lung function;
- integrating fluorescent nanobeads into the lung-on-a-chip as strain sensors
- Integrating a microchip for the analysis of metabolites.
The ideal candidate will have a background in chemistry, physics or related, materials oriented studies.
She/he should have experience in designing and building microfluidic devices and in culturing primary cells.
