OnePlanet Research Center
Smart pill for Gut Health
As part of Ingestible for Gut Health project, the
OnePlanet Research Center is currently developing miniaturized electrochemical
sensors in a smart pill that enables non-invasive monitoring of the
The primary challenge in applying electrochemical sensors in the gut’s environment is to ensure high selectivity in detecting target analytes. Secondly, the lifetime of these sensors is usually affected by the harsh environment of the gut. This work aims to optimize the selectivity and stability of electrochemical sensors by exploring novel sensing materials and methods.
You will be working with the electrochemical sensors team for Ingestible for Gut Health project in a new lab located in Wageningen, the Netherlands. This project focuses on investigating different types of electrochemical sensors that are suitable for the gut’s environment.
We offer a challenging and international environment at the forefront of technology. OnePlanet is a new collaboration of 3 renowned and globally respected research institutes/universities: Wageningen University & Research, Radboud university, Radboudumc, and imec. By joining the OnePlanet team, you will be part of a team of world changers, disruptive innovators, and practical thinkers. Here, your ideas will have an impact on our future lives.
