A team of engineering students from Grenoble headed to Boston in late November compete in the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition. The team, which included four students from Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma, entered their invention, the Neurodrop teardrop test kit for Parkinson’s disease, into the contest.

Neurodrop was nominated for track awards in three categories: Best Diagnostic Project, Best Composite Part, and Best Software Tool. It was also one of 163 projects out of a total of 340 to win a gold medal for effectively responding to all contest specifications.

The team from Grenoble is not currently planning to develop its technology further. However, the team has published its research online, providing open access to anyone that would like to do so.
