We welcome talented, curious and motivated students interested in advancing imaging research at the interface of ultrasound wave physics, molecular engineering and medicine.

Master Thesis Project available!

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. Please contact David (D.Maresca@tudelft.nl) or Valeria (V.Garbin@tudelft.nl) to express your interest and find out more.
