Simulation of electrical resistance measurements in organ-on-chip
In medical research it is desired to reduce or even to eliminate animal testing. For this purpose it is inevitable to develop a realistic model system. One possibility to achieve this goal is to cultivate mammalian cells in the laboratory and to study their reactions to different substances. To mimmic more sophisticated biological structures
At the department for Chemical Engineering a so called Organ-on-Chip was developed which allows the simultaneous cultivation of barrier forming cells and electrical characterization of the barrier.
This bachelor thesis includes following work packages:
- Implementation of a simulation program for the simulation of electric resistance measurements in organ-on-chip
- Optimising the design of the Organ-on-Chip
- Systematic approach to scientific research
