The first online kick off meeting with the consortium (PIs and ESRs) took place last 10th of September. This was an opportunity for all the ESRs to introduce themselves and their project. Audrey Nsamela, ESR at Elvesys and TU Dresden, is giving a short introduction to her project which is at the interface between scientific research and industrial innovation. She is developing a microfluidic platform to study biological microswimmers (i.e. sperm cells) in various flow conditions. Watch the 5 min video to know more !
The ActiveMatter PI+ESRs meeting took place on 10 September 2020. Because of the current travel restrictions and regulations imposed to hinder the spread of the CoViD-19 epidemics, the meeting was held online.
The aim of the meeting was to give an update to all the members on the progress of the ActiveMatter network.
Currently 12 of the 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) have already been recruited and could started their project. During the meeting the ESRs had the opportunity to introduce themselves to the rest of the network and to present their research project.

Audrey Nsamela started her training at Elvesys as one of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ActiveMatter ITN.
Her work focuses on studying biological and biohybrid microswimmers in microfluidics systems.
She will conduct her research under the supervision of Julia Sepulveda at Elvesys, and co-supervised by Dr. Juliane Simmchen at TU-Dresden.
