About Us

We are TUcanSense, the first team of the Technical University of Darmstadt

participating in this inspiring competition. We are a multidisciplinary and international

team of students with backgrounds in mechanical, electrical, medical and industrial

engineering as well as biology and chemistry. Our team members originate from

various countries such as the USA, Ukraine, Lebanon and Germany.

The name of our team is a construct combining three key concepts. First, “TU”

represents the Technical University of Darmstadt. Second, we refer to the sensor by

the part “UcanSense” in the name. Third, the toucan, which stands for communication

and is the name of our university-wide teaching platform, represents the link between

all our team members combining different disciplines.

Finally, combined with our slogan “TUcanSense the future” the name holds our vision

to develop a competitive solution that can detect inflammation in an early stage, and

thus benefit countless patients giving them the chance to sense tomorrow.

Our team is looking forward to the great opportunity this competition offers and to the

scientific exchange with peers from all over the world! We hope to gain new insights in

this field of research and are very excited to apply our knowledge to develop a

functional biosensor system.

TUcanSense the future!
