Microwave assisted local heating for biomedical applications


Project Description

Many biomedical applications require DNA amplifications and isothermal amplification is a technique used to address these requirements. Currently many research groups around the world are looking into developing low cost, portable and hand held devices for such applications. This project will look into employing microwaves to assist with the isothermal process to significantly reduce the size of portable devices and also to reduce power consumption. Microwave techniques can help to locally heat the reaction mixtures. Brunel is currently developing a smartphone controlled field use instrument to assist with biomedical applications. Interest in electromagnetic modelling and microwave hardware will be useful for this project.

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.
