Molecular ultrasound (MU lab) hires a number of graduate students as part of its efforts to develop innovative approaches for cancer diagnosis and therapy, including genetically encoded ultrasound contrast agent, single cell level in vivo ultrasound imaging technique, and microfluidics and microtransducer development. MU lab has three open Ph.D student positions.
Area 1 will focus on single cell and in vivo ultrasound imaging approaches. Beamforming and Image and signal processing using Matlab will be conducted using a commercial imaging system. Algorithm development is the main task + 20% of experiment of in vitro and in vivo ultrasound imaging.
Area 2 includes the development of gene circuits for contrast agents for the early detection of cancer. Related areas of research include cell and molecular biology.
Area 3 will develop a microfluidic device for immunotherapy application. PhD students will focus on the development of microfluidic chip and extensive analysis of immune cell function in vitro and in vivo.
