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.
Congratulation to Anna Swietlikowska, ESR3 from @TUeindhoven for winning a poster prize at #EMBOChemBio 2022! @MSCActions #mariecurious #consense #H2020 https://t.co/W7eVQvhQvGRead More
RT @doudna_lab: So proud of this effort @igisci to develop an amazing resource for both scientists and the general public!Read More
Meet Andris Jeminejs - a.k.a ESR6! Andris has been a part of the CONSENSE network for nearly 1 year now in @GothelfLab. He has a strong background in #organic_chemistry and is currently utilising it to create a nanoswitch for continuous #biosensing. https://t.co/eqwD8QB25hRead More
Last week the bi-annual #consense meeting took place at @TUeindhoven. The consortium met again and had long and inspiring discussions about the progress in ESRs' projects. We also had an opportunity of sharing our knowledge with @SensUs2022 competition students👨🔬👩🔬 #interleukin-6 https://t.co/wlmnPdEw14Read More
This week CONSENSE network is present at #EMBOChemBio in Heidelberg. 4 ESRs are attending the conference and Anna is presenting a #poster (n. 153). Talk to her, Nicola, Alexander and Marc to learn more about continuous biosensing! 🧐 @EMBLEvents @MSCActions #phdlife #consense https://t.co/MAOh4led2rRead More
Within #consense network we believe they do! It can be a first step towards biosensors that can measure biomarkers in real-time and in a continuous manner. An efficient diagnostics of multiple diseases awaits it.Read More
Let's welcome Alexander to the CONSENSE ITN! He has recently been recruited to complete his #PhD project on continuous #biosensing in @MerkxMaarten's group in @TUeindhoven. Read all about his past research, experience and personal background in his blog!Read More
Counting down! In a month the network will meet again at @TUeindhoven to discuss the progress ESRs have made with their projects.🧑🔬 We will also participate in testing biosensor at @SensUs2022. We cannot wait to see students' biosensors in action! #consense #phdlife @EU_H2020 https://t.co/PuBdEoHM78Read More
We would like to introduce you to ESRs working within the #CONSENSE network. We will start of with ESR7 - Emily Tsang! She is a #PhD student at @AarhusUni, in @GothelfLab. She will utilise the technique of #DNA origami to create a continuous #biosensor. https://t.co/QCxxd10TPLRead More
Do not forget to check out our beautiful website! 🙂 It is a small compendium of our #msca #itn network where you can find which research groups are involved in the consortium and what are the projects of ESRs. 🧑🔬#consense #H2020 @EU_H2020 @MSCActionsRead More
Midterm check meeting CONSENSE is funded by the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie scheme. One important goal of this program is to train
