SenseNC is a diverse group of fifteen students from the engineering and science programs at North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the United States of America. Our team consists of students across the disciplines of Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Biochemistry. By uniting our unique skills and training under the mentorship of our Team Guide, Dr. Michael Daniele, SenseNC is primed to disrupt the current state of healthcare and medical technologies. 

As part of the 2017 SensUs Competition, SenseNC ventures to design, construct and validate a sensor to detect and quantify BNP--a critical heart health biomarker. SensUs provides SenseNC an opportunity to investigate a real-world issue in healthcare, while directly interfacing with the healthcare industry. These experiences will be valuable in current and future scientific endeavors for all team members. The SenseNC team looks forward to participating with other students from around the world in the 2017 SensUs Competition and we are excited to contribute to the biosensors community.
