Internship position opening :
Mechanobiology of nematic-like tissues
The proposed internship is situated within the realm of mechanobiology. Specifically, this internship focuses on studying nematic-like tissues, such as muscle tissues, and their response to physical constraints.
This project aims to use magnetic nanoparticles to render cells magnetic, enabling remote manipulation. The magnetized cells can be organized to create purely cellular 3D tissues.
This internship provides a unique platform to delve into the intriguing field of muscle cell differentiation in a 3D context using innovative magnetic manipulation. The selected candidate will work closely with our interdisciplinary research team and gain hands-on experience in cell
culture, nanoparticle manipulation, and cell imaging.
The project will shed light on the interplay between
mechanical force generation, electrical stimulations and muscle cell differentiation.
