SYNSENSO – Cell-free synthetic biology for combinatorial biosensor design

What is SYNSENSO ?

SYNSENSO is a new Doctoral Network (DN) coordinated by the Technische Universität Darmstadt, that is set out to develop new, game-changing combinatorial biosensors. Funded within the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), SYNSENSO follows an interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach by bringing together academic and industrial experts from the fields of cell-free synthetic biology and molecular sensor design.

Cell-free synthetic biology and its use in biosensor design will be transformative for domains ranging from in-vitro diagnostics to health, environmental and bioprocess monitoring, yielding fast and cost-efficient sensors with unprecedented sensitivity and specificity.

Combining synthetic biology and molecular sensor design to build game-changing biosensors and analytical tools.

Meet the network of academic and industry leaders from the fields of synthetic biology, molecular sensor design and DNA nanotechnology.

Explore the SYNSENSO intersectoral training programme, equipping all DCs with multidisciplinary scientific, business and transferable skills.
