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.
