Development of drug delivery wet dressing for localized treatment of psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder addressed mainly with inefficient topical treatments. Here we propose a wet dressing to control the release of nanosized particles able to penetrate the dermis and provide a localized action of drugs through the use of functionalized electrospun fibers.
Master thesis topic in the field of Focussed Ion Beam Time-Of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (FIB-TOF-SIMS)
Focussed Ion Beam Time-Of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (FIB-TOF-SIMS) is an analytical technique that allows all ionized atoms and molecules to be detected and represented in a 3D space with high resolution.
Magnetic Blood Purification
In this thesis project you will develop magnetic particle-based carriers for the rapid capturing and identification of pathogenic bacteria from blood. Rapid identification of the disease-causing pathogen in bacteremia is imperative for patient survival.
Development of Cancer Microtissues for the quantitative Performance Assessment of Radiotherapy using Nanoparticle Radioenhancers
Cancer therapy remains a global challenge. New conceptual approaches need to be developed in order to explore new, transformative therapies. In this project, you will develop a mini-tumour model to assess the efficiency of nanoparticle-enhanced radiotherapy.
Praktikum Bachelor/ Masterarbeit Spaltrprozess von GaAs Wafern
In unserem neuen F&E Projekt Nanocleave untersuchen wir den mechanischen Spaltprozess von GaAs Wafern. Das Ziel ist es dabei, die Bruchvorgänge zu verstehen, um Laserbarren mit Abmessungen von unter 200 µm zu erzielen. Die Arbeit entsteht in Zusammenarbeit mit einer Firma in Zürich.
PhD position in 3D electrospun hydrogel cell scaffold with opto-responsive fiber core for extracellular oxygen and pH mapping
Fully funded PhD studentship available on 3D optically responsive nanostructured cell scaffolds. This is a 4-year PhD (unlike the standard 3.5 year UK PhD), as it is within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Sensing and Measurement. You will learn how to synthesize and characterize optical nanostructures for monitoring clinically relevant bio-markers, how to fabricate 3D nanostructures (3D nanoprinting), how to integrate optical probes within cell scaffolds, how to assess in vitro sensor performance and how to work with cell cultures. Within the project you will use state-of-the-art characterization techniques. Part of the work will be carried out at the material research institute Empa in St. Gallen (Switzerland) (ETH domain).
Risk assessment of nanomaterials
Engineered Nanomaterials (ENM) are contained in many commercial products. During various stages of the life cycle of a product, ENM can be released into the environment. The aim of this work is to investigate release, flows and risks of ENM in the environment, based on a life-cycle perspective.
LICARA NanoSCAN - a web based tool for sustainable nanomaterials
Empa, TNO and the Nano-Cluster Bodensee designed the LICARA NanoSCAN together with partners from industry and science to help SMEs to develop sustainable innovative nanomaterials, products and applications. The LICARA NanoSCAN helps to assess the benefits and risks of nanomaterials.
