Research Project

Today, demand for faster, more cost-effective and more sensitive analysis methods particularly in the area of DNA and protein analysis is more palpable than ever before. In this case innovative and advanced technologies providing reliable information are highly required. An example of such sophisticated technologies are miniaturized laboratory analysis systems also known as “lab-on-a-chip” systems (LOC). Such microsystems, and in particular those based on microfluidic devices, enable new ways to direct experimentation towards biological and medical research. LOC systems enable performing reliable, accurate and reproducible analysis even if applied to very small amount of relevant sample material. Application of those systems gains increasing importance in clinical research e.g. in radiobiology. The research purpose of my PhD project is to develop an assay to understand alterations of the microenvironment of cellular systems after low dose irradiation by using multifunctional lab-on-a-chip device for time-resolved multiparameter analysis.
