Ph.D/Master Project Proposal: Micro-Electromechanical Biosensor and Actuator for Pico Scale Artificial Neurotransmitter Release and Continuous Monitoring

posted Apr 10, 2014, 9:38 PM by Amine M   [ updated Apr 10, 2014, 9:38 PM ]

Project reference: PMP003

An intensive research is focusing on neurotransmission in order to understand brain behavior and neurodegenerative diseases which are going to be the 21th century diseases. 

The objective of this research is to design a micro device based on Bio-MEMS in order to artificially modulate neurotransmitter concentration at a local area of brain. This research covers advanced BioMEMS research, bio-microelectronics interface and high sensitivity biosensing techniques based on carbon nanotubes. 

This research is also targeting the development of new Neuron-BioMEMS interface in order to artificially stimulate neurons.

Ph.D/Master Project Proposal: Potentiostat Array to Measure Neuronal Chemical Activity

posted Jan 23, 2014, 7:49 PM by Amine M   [ updated Jan 23, 2014, 10:27 PM ]

Project reference: PMP002

The measurment of neuronal chemical activity is subject to intense research for a better understanding of neurodegenerative diseases. With new advances in microelectronics and microfluidics, as well as new microfabrication technologies, it is now possible to design microelectronic circuits that can interface with biological fluids to measure the intra-neuronal electrical activity or molecular exchange (neurotransmitters). Thus, we propose in this research project to design an array of potentiostats to measure the concentration change between neurons at the nanoscale.

Ph.D/Master Project Proposal: Lab-on-Chip to Modulate Neurotransmitter Concentration

posted Jan 14, 2014, 8:29 PM by Amine Miled   [ updated Jan 23, 2014, 10:28 PM by Amine M ]

Project reference: PMP001

An intensive research is focusing on neurotransmission in order to understand brain behavior and neurodegenerative diseases which are going to be the 21th century diseases. Neurotransmission is monitored by small molecules named neurotransmitters that modulate the majority of brain behavior. In the case of certain neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's, a disorder in neurotransmitter concentration is strongly involved. In this research project we propose to develop a micro device commonly known as lab-on-chip to modulate neurotransmitter concentration at the pico/nano scale in order to propose new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases and also for a better understanding of the intra-neuronal communication.
