Simulation of FUS Induced Blood-Brain-Barrier Opening (PhD)

Description:

A PhD student will focus on simulating high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)-induced opening of the blood-brain barrier and targeted drug delivery - a relatively novel medical technique. A simulation environment will be developed capable of computing ultrasound propagation; micro-bubble cavitation; pressure-induced flow and transport variations; and resulting biological consequences and effects. Interaction with medical and biological experts will be possible and close contacts to other research groups in the field will have to be maintained throughout the project. Novel numerical techniques and mathematical models will have to be developed and implemented.

Place:

IT'IS Foundation for Research on Information Technologies in Society, Zurich, Switzerland

Duration and Commencement:

As arranged.
