  1. 1.    Formulation of new non-Newtonian blood-mimicking fluid from polysaccharides and micro-particles for angiography imaging in a 3D-printed medical simulator
    RGMS Research Grant
    Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS)
    This project is looking for candidate with relevant Masters degree to pursue PhD level research on blood mimicking fluids. Blood-mimicking fluids are used in in-vitro flow measurement, such as Doppler ultrasound flow test devices and particle image velocimetry, and in medical simulator flow models. Medical simulators are crucial for providing effective healthcare in cases of high mortality and morbidity risk. This research focuses on blood mimic formulation for the simulation of medical treatment under angiography imaging. The development of blood mimic involves sample preparation, chemical analysis and testing at medical facilities. This project is in collaboration with Hospital Pengajar Universiti Putra Malaysia, Lönge Medikal Sdn. Bhd. and Heriot-Watt University, Malaysia.

    GRA is expected to perform research activities to develop new materials of blood mimic mixture for angiography imaging and analyzing the factors affecting the formulation. Research activities includes formulating the mixture of blood mimic, validating the image of blood vessels structure produced by the blood mimic formulated and verifying the tactile accuracy of the 3D-printed medical simulator produced by the blood mimic.
