Postdoc Position on microrobotics at FEMTO-ST Institute (Besancon, France)

Workplace: Besancon, France

The FEMTO-ST Institute aims to develop a new untethered microrobot dedicated to the development of Advanced Therapy Medical Products. Advanced Therapy Medical Products (ATMPs) recently emerged in order to provide new therapy solutions for patients in therapeutic impasse or for new therapies. These ATMPs rely on the use of “drug cells” exhibiting new physiological functions, biological characteristics or reconstitution properties directly inspired from natural processes occurring in the human organism. However, developing these drug cells necessitates extracting a few lymphocytes from a blood sample.

The microrobot will be equipped with gripping capabilities, and will be moved and actuated remotely. The robot should be able to navigate in a blood sample to grasp a given cell, and bring it to a desired location for further biological analysis. This microrobot should be less than 1 millimeter long, biocompatible and vision based controlled.
