To kick off the international student competition SensUs 2022 at TU Darmstadt, we held the kickoff of the project on January 14, 2022 together with our partners from biology, chemistry and electrical engineering as well as our 15-member team of ambitious future scientists. The focus was on getting to know each other and the exchange of knowledge and competences. For this purpose, the participating representatives introduced their departments and their fields of expertise. With the knowledge of the competences of the participating disciplines, our team now starts into the development phase of the biosensor prototype for the detection of interleukin-6 and an exciting competition year. We would like to thank our colleagues for their participation and wish the SensUs team of the TU Darmstadt good luck in the competition!
