The design, development and application of organs-on-chips is a multi-disciplinary process. This means that students with a wide range of skills are needed to tackle the various engineering challenges. Whether you are a student with a background in biomedical engineering, chemical technology, applied physics, electrical engineering, technical medicine or even health sciences, there will likely be a project for you in the field of organs-on-chips.
Multiple departments in the MIRA Institute offer projects for students who want to work on organ-on-chip technology. Projects are available for Bachelor’s students (both B.Sc. and BAS) and Master’s students. Here you’ll find descriptions of typical projects, accompanied by the type of practical skills you would acquire. The descriptions also list contact details of the people that can discuss concrete options with you.
If you are unsure about what type of project to pursue, or if you have any other general questions, feel free to contact Andries van der Meer.
