The project, “Capsule-Based Bioimpedance Sensing for Inflammatory Biomarker Detection in Gastrointestinal Tract,” is part of a long-term MSAL research focus on developing a flexible ingestible capsule with sensors that can gather data on the underlying mechanisms of inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. Such a device could someday aid in unlocking how a combination of genetic, microbiome, immune system and environmental factors influence chronic auto-immune inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
