Two positions available on the Project Stimuli2BioScaffold – Stimuli optimization for BioScaffolds: from numerical modelling to in vitro tests funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
Goal of the Project: Tissue engineering is playing a key role on the regeneration of cartilage or bone tissues. Stimuli2BioScaffolds intends to contribute to this research area. It main objectives are: i) to develop a new finite element-based framework (FEMf) that allow the optimization of stimulation parameters (mechanical, electrical and magnetic) of in vitro culture seeded on bioscaffolds, placed at a bioreactor, for later implantation, ii) to design and assemble a new bioreactor, iii) to validate the FEMf and the bioreactor using in vitro studies. PhDr and PhD student will be involved in the above tasks. They will be integrated on the multidisciplinary team of CDRSP-IPLeiria in particularly with the Computational and Mathematical Methods and Biofabrication.
Principal Investigator (PI) of the project: Paula Pascoal-Faria | CDRSP | ESTG-IPLeiria.
PhD student + Hired (PhDr) in Mathematics/Physics or Engineering, experience in programming and with the finite element method for 3(1+2) years. Expected starting date: September 2018.
