AROMA & CAPOEIRA: Scent Measuring Robot & Personalized Cancer Therapy

 

Join the ETH and EPFL teams at swissnex Boston as they recap their 2018 iGEM projects. Students from the ETH team will present their project “AROMA – the Autonomous Robot for Odorant Measurement in Air.” EPFL students will follow with an overview of their project “CAPOEIRA – CAncer PersOnalized Encapsulin Immunotherapy and Relapse Assay.” An audience Q&A will follow the presentations and the evening will close with a networking reception with refreshments.

iGEM competition is an annual, worldwide competition in the field of synthetic biology. Each year undergraduate and postgraduate students gather in multidisciplinary teams and work all summer long to build genetically engineered systems. These systems will have applications in different fields, including therapeutics, diagnostics, food and nutrition, energy, and environment.
