Influwegians, if you can crack this play on words, you’ll already know all about our team!

Based in world-changing Glasgow, we are an international team of students from all corners of the globe, united by our love of research and passion for biosensing. Glasgow is considered one of the greenest cities in the UK, world-famous for its parks and green spaces. True to this legacy, we will hold sustainability at the very heart of our design process. We hope to seamlessly combine the talents of all the Influwegians to create an innovative device that will revolutionize the healthcare industry.

Remote working, diverse time zones and travel restrictions are but a fraction of the challenges we face every day, yet our unwavering determination to design the best possible biosensor will never fade.
