iCAN June 2019

We are the Heatshockers.

In June 2019, we won the international Contest of Innovation (iCAN) with our aim to build a Pointof-Care test (POCT) device for rapid determination of the Heat-Shock protein 70 (Hsp70) concentration in the blood. With this Idea, we have prevailed participants of China, Korea, Japan, Switzerland, France, Germany, Great Britain and other nationalities. This would not have been possible without our supervisor, professor Oliver Hayden, our contact person for all biochemical questions, Caroline Werner, and our industrial partners. Big shout out to you!

During the next weeks, we want to finish out prototype, perform in-depth tests and look for more use-cases.
