This course teaches the basics of microfluidic technology and samples a range of applications in microbiology and chemistry, all through hands-on experience and live demos.
Are you looking for an Master’s thesis at the interface between material science and microbiology? Then, you should check this link out! In collaboration with Prof. Isa (ETH, D-MATL) and Prof. Mathys (ETH, D-HEST), we will use bacterial spores as building blocks to enable the design of living or self-healing materials following routes developed for colloidal particles.
We are looking for a motivated student for a Master’s thesis followed by an internship in the development of a microfluidic assay to study plastic biodegradation. The project is a collaboration between our group at ETH Zurich and Dr. Hannah Kleyer (Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences) at Nestlé Research Lausanne. You can find more info here.
