INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH IN ELECTRICAL AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

Our primary area of interest is the broad application of soft nanomaterials to engineer devices which monitor, mimic or augment biological function. Specific topics of research include wearable and implantable biosensors, organ-on-chip models, and human-machine interfaces.

SensUs: Student Research Competition

SensUs is a yearly international student competition on sensors for health. By involving students, industry, and academia we strive to accelerate the development of sensors for health for a better future. SenseNC is composed of a diverse group of individuals who are bringing their skills together to achieve one goal. Amongst these individuals are Engineering, Design,and Businesses students. Our collective efforts bridge the gap between all of the different skills. The team’s goals consist of implementing innovation, technology and design into the medical world. We are striving to improve population health outcomes and prevent against antibiotic resistance. This competition is all about gaining experience by encountering and solving problems as an interdisciplinary team.

The exciting finals of SensUs 2017 took place at Eindhoven University of Technology on the 8th and 9th of September. Ten teams came together from Sweden, Denmark, Scotland, England, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Egypt, and the USA. The teams competed to inspire the public and convince the jury of their biosensors for the detection of heart failure.

The exciting finals of SensUs 2018 took place at Eindhoven University of Technology on the 7th and 8th of September. The biosensors were tested by measuring antibiotics in blood plasma. This year’s winner was team T.E.S.T. from Eindhoven. They won the 1st prize in Analytical Performance, the 1st prize in Translation Potential and the 1st prize in Public Inspiration. Sweden (Uppsala) won the 1st prize in Creativity. Denmark (DTU) won the 2nd prize in Creativity and the 2nd prize in Public Inspiration. And Belgium (Leuven) won the 2nd prize in Analytical Performance and the 2nd prize in Translation Potential.

JOIN THE TEAM!

We are always recruiting postdoctoral and student researchers to support research efforts. We are currently seeking postdoctoral scholars to work in the area of organ-on-chip and tissue engineering. Successful postdoctoral candidates will have a strong background in microfabrication, bioanalytical techniques, and cell culture. Graduate and Undergraduate students with any interest in biology, electronics, and materials science should contact Dr. Daniele directly.
