Your Role

During the PhD research, the candidate will develop experiments to understand the role of physical gradients within mucus layers (similar to those in large intestine of humans) in regulating the transport of chemical molecules (e.

g., nutrients or metabolites) and gut-associated microbes. By combining microfluidics and microscale imaging, the candidate will analyze how transport processes determine and maintain a healthy microbiome-human interface.

Please contact Prof. Anupam Sengupta () or visit the research page for further information on the project and its scope.
