Students Study Biosensor Tech in Denmark
A group of six students, led by Michigan Tech faculty, are in Aarhus, Denmark, this summer. The International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program focuses on developing interdisciplinary teams to meet the global challenges of health research.
Specifically, the students are funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to look at biosensor technology and how it can be used in point-of-care devices to diagnosis diseases like tuberculosis or malaria. The students in the program will spend eight weeks in the Department of Molecular Biology at Aarhus University. Read more about their research projects and see the sights.
