Magnetic micro-robots for medical applications

, , , ,

Dr. Hamid Marvi, an Assistant Professor for the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering has a research opening for FURI, MORE, and Honors students regarding Magnetic micro-robots for medical applications. 

Students will have the opportunity to participate in the Magnetic micro-robots for medical applications project which includes design, fabrication, and experimental tests on magnetic microrobots. The micro-robot designs target human health applications such as microsurgery, drug delivery, etc. Micro-robots are fabricated using ferromagnetic nanoparticles in conjunction with a PDMS molding process. The experiments take place within an in-house electromagnetic coil setup which is coded in C++. The control method varies by the micro-robot design. The students may participate in one or multiple stages of this project.
