Creative Uppsalastudents receive award in Eindhoven
Team UppSense, consisting of nine students at Uppsala University, was awarded the Creativity Award at SensUs 2017, an international student competition organized by Eindhoven University of Technology.
Competing against teams from universities around the globe, Uppsense from Uppsala University has been awarded the Creativity Award at SensUs 2017 in Eindhoven (NL). This second edition of the annual international student competition saw the teams presenting biosensor systems, aiming at the detection of a selected cardiovascular biomarker (NT-proBNP) in blood plasma.
– Our team has consisted of nine students with various academic and geographical backgrounds. Between November 2016 and September 2017 they have designed, built, and tested a biosensor for heart failure, learning a lot from each other as well as about biosensors along the way. All students participated with great enthusiasm and have definitely deserved this award, says Gemma Mestres, Associate Professor at Uppsala University’s Department of Engineering Sciences.
The preparations of SensUs 2018 are already in full swing. In the third installment of the competition, the students will aim to target vancomycin. As one of 13 universities having enrolled to date Uppsala is now recruiting students to next year’s team.
– This is a great opportunity to experience a multinational and multidisciplinary challenge for a good cause. The team will operate from November 2017 until the contest week in September 2018, and we want to encourage all students of medicine, biology, programming, electrical circuits etc to contact us, says Masood Kamali-Moghaddam, senior lecturer at the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology.
