We're Sensing Barcelona, our team is a multiskilled team formed by biomedical engineering students and electrical engineering students from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and the University of Vic - Central University of Catalonia (UVic-UCC). The team is headed by Jasmina Casals.
Adalimumab is an antibody. This makes it difficult to produce in large quantities and very expensive. If there was a better quantification of its presence in blood, treatments could be more personalized and costs would be reduced.
Our aim in the competition is to develop a precise and useful biosensor that detects the amount of Adalimumab in blood while being portable and environmentally friendly.
We consider ourselves as very positive students and thorough when it comes to develop a system. Furthermore, we strongly believe that teamwork is key as well as communication. It is a pleasure to take part in this competition that allows us to use our passion for medicine and technology.
