Sensor Team Challenge

The Sensor CDT's 2016-7 MRes cohort was set the challenge to develop a cell-free sensor platform to detect arsenic in drinking water. The students will present their results from the Team Challenge project at the conference and will run a live demonstration of the technology developed during the session intervals.

Poster submission

This is an exciting opportunity to present your sensor research to leading figures in the field from academia and industry. A prize for the best poster will be awarded at the Sensors' Day.

Please use the abstract template and submit to .

The deadline for submitting a poster abstract is 27 September 2017.
