Michelle Wortley is a postdoctoral research associate within the department of Bioengineering delivering technology innovation for multiple clinical applications. Projects include monitoring brain tissue health in traumatic brain injury patients, assessing kidney viability prior to transplantation, monitoring compartment syndrome onset, development of in vivo antibiotic sensors, and monitoring tissue perfusion during free-flap reconstruction surgery. The technology uses electrochemical biosensors are fabricated within a 3D printed microfluidic manifold that is housed in a wireless device suitable for continuous bed-side monitoring in hospitals.
In December 2011, Michelle was awarded her PhD in Bioengineering at Imperial College. Prior to post-graduate studies Michelle was awarded a BSc in Human Genetics from University College London.
