What is SensUs Uppsala?
We are a team of students representing Uppsala University in TU/e‘s SensUs competition. SensUs is an international student competition that takes place each year in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Here student teams present their own molecular biosensors for healthcare applications.

This year the sensor will be about the biomarker Etanercept for Rheumatoid arthritis.
Why should I be part of the team?
Being part of the SensUs competition represents being part of something bigger: 14 universities all around the world will be working towards the same goal! At Uppsala University, you will be exposed to a real research environment, both in the lab and by having discussions with PhD students, researchers and professors working in different fields. You will also have the chance to discuss the project with companies in the Uppsala-Stockholm area. On top of getting practical and theoretical knowledge, you will also be working with a multidisciplinary group of students fighting towards the same goal. Last but not least… we hope you will have lots of fun!
Can I fit SensUs in my schedule?
Defenitively, SensUs is planned as a 15 hp course called “Innovation of Molecular Biosensors” (course code: 3MG039).
Follow this link to get more information about the course.
For how long should I engage?
The team will work together from November 2018 until September 2019, when the actual contest takes place in The Netherlands.
During this period of time the engagement might vary, but you should count on an average of 25% for these 10 months (with the intensity increasing during the summer up to 50-75%).
How can I apply?
