Mohammad Jouybar (TU/e) starts on the design and fabrication of microfluidic devices for cancer research
The Microsystems group of hDMT PI Jaap den Toonder welcomes Mohammad Jouybar as a PhD candidate. The Cancer-on-Chip research group of Microsystems at the Eindhoven University of Technology tries to recapitulate the cancer microenvironment on microfluidic devices, and effectively study the cancer metastasis on them.
Jouybar is starting to work on the design and fabrication of microfluidic devices to mimic the cancer metastasis (invasion and intravasation) on chip. In addition, he is also involved in Moore4Medical (M4M) project, which is focused on autonomous smart multi-well plates integrated by Organ-on-Chip technology.
Jouybar has recently won the best poster prize from Royal Society of Chemistry (Labonachip) at Organ-on-a-Chip, Tissue-on-a-Chip & Organoids Europe 2020, SelectBio conference, which was held in Rotterdam, NL. He presented the work from his master degree thesis A Novel Soft Lithography Technique for Porous Membrane Fabrication as a Permeable Barrier in Gut- and Lung-on-Chip Devices, which was done in MiMiCLab, Politecnico di Milano under supervision of Prof. M. Rasponi, and European Institute of Oncology, under supervision of Dr L. Nezi.
