A game change in continuous biosensing: molecularly engineered affinity-based nanoswitches for personal monitoring
The CONSENSE project is developing a new sensor technology suitable for measuring biomolecules important for monitoring disease status and treatment efficacy. A generic technology that enables the continuous measurement of a wide range of biomolecular parameters could revolutionise patient monitoring and enable truly personalised therapy with better outcomes.
CONSENSE brings together internationally leading pioneers in biomolecular switch engineering with research groups that have an excellent track record in biosensor development using advanced optical approaches, including two high-tech companies that have spun out from these groups. The consortium is completed by a strong network of partner industries and organisations, including four large medical technology companies, clinical experts, and six SMEs providing specific technical expertise and training.
Check out this amazing video made by our friendly ITN consortium! 🙂 Within Consense, we share the same mission. We also want to boost #biosensing technologies for the benefit of the society. @MSCActions #consense #mariecuriousRead More

Upcoming: 2nd CONSENSE Week @ KU Leuven!
Next week, the CONSENSE ESRs and consortium will get together for the 2nd CONSENSE week – a weeklong meeting
Last but not least – let’s welcome ESR11!
Hello, I am Daniil Riabov, ESR 11 and I am glad to be a part of the CONSENSE project!
Hello, my name is Nicola Porzberg – ESR5 of the CONSENSE consortium – and I have the opportunity to
