We are a team of 8 motivated Master students, 3 girls and 5 boys. We have background in Microengineering, Bioengineering and Life Sciences at EPFL.  We believe that this interdisciplinary aspect makes us a stronger team and we will learn a lot from each other. On the top of that, we share a common minor in biomedical applications and this is this interest which brought us together to compete in SensUs.

This year the project is about creating a biomedical test able to detect Adalimumab a drug to cure rheumatoid arthritis, the need for this device is quite important now days approximately 10-30% of patients do not respond to the drug and 23-46% of patients loss the response over time.  We are excited to develop a reliable, fast, and cheap biosensors for a real cause. This will be the opportunity to enhance our skills, creativity, but also learn about teamwork.
