Doctoral fellowship in NCN project

Position: Doctoral scholarship

Number of positions: 1

Research unit name: Nalecz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering Polish Academy of Sciences

City: Warsaw


Master of Science in exact science, e.g. biomedical engineering, physics etc.

PhD student status at a registered doctoral school (UW, PW, PAN etc.)

Good laboratory skills: measurement systems based on technique of near infrared spectroscopy (laser light sources, photodetectors, etc.), extensive knowledge in the field of optoelectronics. Good understanding of optical/photonic principles.

Experience in designing, implementing and operating NIRS systems and measurement solutions.

Data analysis and related scientific programming skills (C++, MatLab, LabView etc.).

Fluent English enabling writing publications and communication with foreign partners.

Innovativeness, independence and good self-organization.

Tasks description:

The goal of this project is to develop a method that allows invasive measurements using near infrared spectroscopy.

The advantage of invasive measurements is the potential to reduce the effect of an influence of extracerebral layers on the measurement results and thus on accuracy in estimation of brain physiological parameters, such as tissue saturation, cerebral autoregulation, changes in hemoglobin concentration. Due to the invasive nature of the measurement, these tests can only be carried out in intensive care units, where invasive probes are used to monitor intracranial pressure [2] or oxygen partial pressure (PtiO2). The proposed method assumes the use of existing, clinically certified measuring probes.

The work will involve development of the measurement method and then its verification in animal model and in-vivo tests in the intensive care unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. The analysis of measurement results assumes the determination of tissue saturation, critical closing pressure. Furthermore, the optical signals will be correlated with intracranial pressure. The results will be compared between the ones obtained in invasive and non-invasive way.
