After 9 months of designing, building and testing...
SensUs event 2017
SensUs 2017 represents the second edition of the SensUs student competition. Between November 2016 and September 2017 teams have been designing, building, and testing biosensor systems, aiming at the detection of a selected cardiovascular biomarker (NT-proBNP) in blood plasma. In September 2017 all teams will come to Eindhoven University of Technology for the final testing event and public event. Last year, 5 universities participated in SensUs 2016. In SensUs 2017 there are 10 different international universities competing with each other.

A short introduction by Menno Prins and Danny van der Haven about the program of the day, the jury process and the testing rounds.
All 10 teams will demonstrate their sensors by testing samples that the organization has prepared. Also, each team will have a stand on the market where they will explain to the public how their biosensor works. Partners of SensUs will present themselves on this market. Furthermore, each team will give two pitches: one pitch about the technology of their sensor, and one about the translation potential.
Our master of ceremonies, Barry Fitzgerald, will open this innovation day. Anne de Dreu will introduce the theme of this year, heart failure, and the biomarker that the teams have to detect, NT-proBNP.
All teams will give a one-minute pitch to explain to the public why their biosensor should win and what is so good about it.
Each team will have a stand on the market where they explain to the public how their biosensor works. Partners of SensUs will also present themselves on this market. Furthermore, each team will give a 5-minute presentation. Workshops by various partners can be visited. And also highschool students will give a presentation.
Dr. Zayna Khayat will give a presentation on exciting developments in the field of sensors for health. Dr. Khayat completed a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Toronto and thereafter specialized in consultancy for healthcare innovation. She is currently on secondment from Toronto (Canada) to the REshape Health Innovation Centre at Radboud University Medical Centre in Nijmegen.
The four different awards will be awarded to the winning teams by our expert jury.
