The thesis explores the advantages of using microfluidic technology in the field of medicine, to effectively monitor and treat various inflammatory diseases. This was achieved through the characterisation of how sticky cells are under various conditions, where specific adhesive strengths and cell behaviour can be attributed as bio-markers for diseases such as Malaria, and Multiple Sclerosis.
