2.7 million euros for the SYNSENSO Doctoral Network

Programmable biosensors using synthetic biology: Funding as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action


The international “SYNSENSO” Doctoral Network that is coordinated by TU Darmstadt is developing a new generation of modular biosensors. The European Commission has now awarded the network a total of 2.7 million euros of funding as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action.

The SYNSENSO Doctoral Network (“Cell-free synthetic biology for combinatorial biosensor design”) that is being funded as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) is coordinated by Professor Heinz Koeppl. Ten doctoral students are carrying out research as part of SYNSENSO into a new generation of biosensors that can detect complex analyte profiles and computationally combine them at a molecular level. Students will be working at the interface between cell-free synthetic biology and molecular sensor design.
