Overview: This project will focus on the development of novel imaging methods that possess a broad range of applications including, 3D printing, electromagnetic field mapping, bioprinting, and cancer research. This project can be divided into multiple small tasks in the areas of (bio)chemistry; electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering; material sciences; biology. The goal of this project is to generate oxygen in bioprinted models of tissue and image its diffusion and consumption by the cells.
Skills Expected to Gain: The students will be engaged in and learn how to work as a team in a multidisciplinary project. Depending on the interests, they will acquire knowledge covering broadly natural sciences from mathematics to biology and laboratory skill set, including hands-on experience using state-of-the-art instrumentation.
Expected Duration of the Project: The project will last during the Fall 2021 semester minimum; the project is long term and could span multiple semesters.
Qualifications: The undergraduate researcher must have some proficiency in MATLAB (including parallel programming and instrument control), radio wave electronics (MHz-GHz frequency range), circuit design (including PCB Eagle), programming of microelectronics (including Teensy), 3D model designs and printing, and cell cultures.
Location and Expected Time Commitment: The researcher is expected to work 8 hours/week minimum.
