Murat Kuscu - Microfluidic molecular communication systems


The project involves the design, implementation and experimental characterization of PDMS-based microfluidic chips for modulating the transmission and propagation of messages encoded in the concentration of various biochemicals, as well as optimizing and controlling the reception of these messages by lateral flow sensors, i.e., DNA, pH, ions sensors fabricated in our laboratory. The microfluidic chips will be fabricated by graduate students in our group. The summer research intern will be expected to perform the validation experiments using microfluidic flow control equipment available in our lab and analyze the experimental results using image/video processing tools, for example, in MATLAB or Python.
