Research & development - Wageningen | More than two weeks ago
This PhD project is part of the ingestible
sensing project within the OnePlanet Research Centre. This is a multidisciplinary collaboration
between imec, Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and Radboud University. We use the
latest chip and digital technology to create a society in which everyone can
live a healthy life and has access to good and sufficient food.
Ingestible sensors have the potential to non-invasively measure biomarkers and metabolites in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Using such electronic smart pills equipped with sensors will give novel insights into gut processes, help with early diagnosis and screening for diseases, and aid personalized nutrition. The project is highly interdisciplinary involving organic chemistry, surface chemistry and biocatalysis and therefore strongly relies on teamwork and collaboration as the laboratory work will take place in the labs of all three project partners
The project is a collaboration of imec, the Laboratory of Organic Chemistry at Wageningen University & Research, and the Synthetic Organic Chemistry group at Radboud University in Nijmegen.
We offer a challenging and international
environment at the forefront of technology, in an international network of
renowned industrial customers. This is your opportunity to bring new
technologies to the market that will have an impact on tomorrow’s society.
