Function Saxion Bachelor Student
Project Retina-on-a-chip and age-related macular degeneration


I am a fourth year student at Saxion where I study biology and medical laboratory research and I willl be working at the UT on the Retina-on-a-chip project for my Bacherlor assignment. 

During my time at the AST, I will be working with Yusuf Bilgehan Arik and Aisen de Sá Vivas to replace a membrane in the current Retina-on-a-chip design by a artificial extracellulair matrix membrane to improve the functionality of the chip. Before my assigment at AST, I have done a internship at the BIOS Lab-on-a-Chip where I worked on the blood-brain-barrier-on-a-chip project. During this internship I worked on the implementation of cell sheets in the blood-brain-barrier-on-a-chip design.
