Amazing things Alaba's made
My final year project at university for my Biomedical Engineering degree was in the field of Organ on a Chip. This is a field that creates micro-scale functional models of human organs grown outside the body. These are not complete organs, just small enough tissue that represent functional models of human organs. To sustain the tissue outside the human body, an attempt is usually made to create an environment similar to that of the particular organ in the body.
This is a multidisciplinary area. My project was part of a research group and the area I covered was the electronic system responsible for pumping nutrient fluid around experimental setup, use sensors to monitor the organ model and also log experimental data.
The system built was not perfect, and I humbly hesitate to call it 'amazing', but it was the most complex system I have built. It was only partially tested but most parts worked suitably, which I was pleased with as it was a first time build with no prototypes.
