Competitions & Student teams
SensUs, the first international student competition on molecular biosensors for healthcare applications
The mission of SensUs is to stimulate the development of molecular health sensing technologies by organizing an international competition for teams of students. In a friendly competitive manner, SensUs will challenge multidisciplinary teams of students to conceive and build innovative molecular biosensing systems. The competition will give students a unique chance to gain experience in goal-oriented multidisciplinary teamwork and in innovative technological design.
Please find more information about the competition on the website of SensUs.
iGEM team TU Eindhoven
The international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition, which is held in Boston, is the premiere student competition in synthetic biology. Teams employ synthetic biological techniques to modify cells into machines to counter real-world problems in the fields of energy, medicine , environment or food. In addition, iGEM also involves questions “beyond the bench”, relating to ethics, sustainability, safety, environmental impact or intellectual property rights, and stimulates students to reflect on these aspects of scientific research.
More information about the iGEM competition can be found on the website of iGEM
Every year, a student team from the TU/e joins the iGEM competition. More information about their project can be found on the website of iGEM team TU Eindhoven 2016.
