Min Jin Project

Brief introduction

The aim of this project is to analyze, in an artificial 3D circuit mimicking the physiological properties of a real vascular network, the circulation of RBCs of diabetic patients, with the aim of understanding in detail the conditions of blood aggregates formation that can lead to vascular occlusion.  A systematic study on diabetic blood and healthy blood will be undertaken, in microfluidic circuits with or without endothelial cells (EC), in order to study the effects (adhesion RBC-RBC and RBC-EC).  This work will be conducted in concert with numerical simulations performed in our laboratory.
