The Innovation in Materials and Molecular Engineering (IMEM) Group is looking for an early stage researcher (PhD student) to develop his/her PhD thesis project on the development of a biomedical devices using polymers and hybrid materials. The contract will be as Research Assistant with a salary equivalent to a competitive PhD grant (FPI grant). The project, which is strongly connected to the experimental activity at BRCMS center, will include experimental development of new materials and devices for biomed applications.



Project description



MULTIFUNCTIONAL NANOMEMBRANES AS PROGRAMMABLE NANO-BIO INTERFACES FOR BIOINTEGRATED DEVICES



In conventional medical systems, a wide range of biological signals -pulse, temperature, pressure,

biomarkers- are employed for the evaluation of normal organ functions and the diagnosis of diseased tissues. However, these conventional screening systems allow only limited access to target tissues/organs and may be incapable of signal detection with high fidelity and sensitivity for early diagnosis in diseases; mainly, due to the rigid and bulky characteristics of medical systems.



This PhD thesis project aims to fabricate a new generation of flexible biointegrated devices using soft nanomembranes integrated with nanomaterials for applications in nanodiagnostics (bio)sensors)), nanotherapeutics drug delivery systems) and nanotheragnostics (coupling the two previous devices into the same system). The nanomembranes, free-standing and self-supported 2D nanostructures (thickness in the range 5-100nm), will be fabricated using polymeric materials due to their excellent flexibility, conformability and/or stretchability but also biocompatibility and biodegradability. Moreover, nanomembranes can be easily modified by incorporating nanomaterials nanoparticles, nanowires, nanocones, etc) into the membrane pores in order to confer multifunctionality and modulate the nano-bio interface. Since nanomaterials interact with biological entities at multiple levels proteins, DNA, organelles, cells, tissues and organs) through a series of dynamic bio-physicochemical interactions, modifying nanomaterials properties such as surface chemistry, size, shape, topographic structures or physical properties magnetic, electric, optic…) will allow such modulation to get a better device performance.
