    The Vascular Engineering on chip using differentiated Stem Cells (VESCEL) project aims to realize an on-chip model of human vasculature, where living cells are cultured and perfused in micrometer size compartments to mimic human vasculature function. This part of the VESCEL project aims to integrate micro sensors in the to-be-developed vasculature model, namely to monitor pH, PO2, and nitric oxide. Initial results of ruthenium oxide nanorods (RuOx) sensor fabrication and its pH sensing performance are presented. RuOx showed Nernstian response to pH range of 4.00 to 10.00. Future work and applications are also discussed.
