We are looking for motivated students who are interested in research in biomechanical engineering and biomaterials. The groups research aims to develop new biomaterials and tissue models using microfluidics and 3D printing technologies. These models are used to quantitatively measure cellular processes, discover new drugs, and test drug formulations for effective delivery.
For Spring 2020, we are looking for students for following projects:
- Development of new hybrid hydrogel-elastomer materials
- 3D printed tumor-on-chip microfluidic platforms for high throughput drug screening
Strong background in mechanical engineering disciplines are desired. These include thermal and materials sciences. Knowledge on biology and medical sciences are preferred but not required. Most importantly, willingness to learn new disciplines is essential. Interested individuals can email their interests to Professor Han at firstname.lastname@example.org.
