Project Description

A studentship is available to work on label-free microfluidic sorting for low cost medical diagnostics. The goal is to develop advanced but low cost diagnostic platforms to tackle critical medical conditions using advanced microfluidics. Tes project will combine experimental science with microfabrication and advanced modelling techniques. The project is part of an EU network aimed at developing new schemes for sorting of bacteria, enrich parasites and parasite infected cells and isolate rare cells such as circulating tumor cells. Chips will be designed and fabricated using state of the art clean rooms, focusing on the potential for simple low-cost mass produced systems.

The student will be part of a Europe wide consortium and is expected to be in post April 2014.
