In collaboration with other teams at CEA, the candidate will have to develop and characterize two microfluidic devices for biological entities sorting. The candidate will work on two devices. One to sort in size cell clusters called Langerhans islets involved in the insulin secretion. This task is part of a cell therapy project for type I diabetes aimed at grafting allogenic encapsulated islets to restore glucose regulation with limited or no immuno-suppressive treatments. The other one is related to the sorting of viruses from a plasma sample and their conditioning for subsequent nebulization and detection. It requires both the development and characterization of sorting devices, and their implementation on a fluidic cartridge.
