The topic of 2019:

Adalimumab is an antibody used as a medication for the treatment of various conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and Crohn’s disease. Unfortunately, patient response to the drug is different among individuals, and it is hard for physicians to assess the right dose of Adalimumab to administer in order to obtain a satisfactory response. By allowing rapid and simple quantification of antibody on site and comparing this data to the patient response, the therapeutic index of Adalimumab could be substantially improved. The idea, in short, is to facilitate personalized care for each patient suffering from these conditions.

SensUs Uppsala:

We are the team that represents the Uppsala University in the SensUs competition. SensUs is a yearly international student competition on molecular biosensors for healthcare applications, which is held in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

Competition of 2019:

This year university teams from different countries will compete in SensUs. The focus is on Managing rheumatic disease, by measuring with ease. SensUs 2019 challenges student teams to develop innovative biosensing systems for the measurement of adalimumab, a biological drug that is used to treat rheumatic disease. We are a group of international master students out of different disciplines that are working together in Uppsala (Sweden).
