Project title: High-throughput stimuli-responsive screening microchips for cardiac tissue remodeling – StimuliResponsiveHeart
Host Institution: Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)
Host Supervisor: Dr. Burcu Gumuscu-Sefunc
Co-host Institution: École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)
Co-host Supervisor: Dr. Georg Fantner
Summary project: The work proposes to fabricate intelligent heart microchips that mimic the cardiac microenvironment and induce mechanical/ electromagnetic stimulation to the cells to study disease onset and cardiac tissue regeneration.
