Gas vesicles (GVs) are air-filled protein nanostructures that can be deployed to enable deep molecular ultrasound imaging in living organisms. To maximize the potential of this nanotechnology, a diversification of GV acoustic properties is needed. Your goal will be to develop new formulations based on gas vesicles for enhanced acoustic performance. The project is supervised by David Maresca (ImPhys) and co-supervised by Valeria Garbin (ChemE), and is suitable for an MSc student Applied Physics or Chemical Engineering. This collaborative, interdisciplinary project is supported by the Delft Bioengineering Institute.
