Many of our i-sense team members have received awards or fellowships over the past year - let’s take a closer look at a few of our award updates.
Zyme Biosciences, a team led by Dr Marta Broto Aviles who is an i-sense postdoc in Prof Molly Stevens group at Imperial College London, have made the finals of WE Innovate 2021. The scheme is led by the Imperial Enterprise Lab and provides a platform to showcase the incredible progress being made in women’s entrepreneurship at Imperial – with winning teams receiving a part of a 30K prize fund for their ideas.
New research from the i-sense group at UCL, published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics, addresses the urgent need for more accurate rapid diagnostics for COVID-19 by developing an isothermal test that simultaneously detects two gene targets.
Online search data can help inform the public health response to COVID-19, according to a report from UCL. The data allows experts to predict a peak in cases on average 17 days in advance.
World-renowned sexual health experts are behind a new NHS digital revolution for people with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) using a new automated online consultation giving patients 24-hour access to medical care.
A team of scientists, led by Glasgow Caledonian University Prof of HIV and Sexual Health, and i-sense member, Prof Claudia Estcourt, have launched an ambitious five-year research project to develop a new NHS digital platform to improve care for people with STIs.
Researchers within i-sense have developed a new public health data visualisation dashboard for COVID-19. Developing the dashboard has highlighted issues regarding the quality, consistency and availability of reliable data needed to manage the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts.
