Leona Gilbert and team POCKIT as semifinalist for Helsinki challenge!

Team POCKIT is one of the Helsinki Challenge semifinalists! Team leader is Leona Gilbert. POCKit is creating a device for patients to test for multiple microbes and different stages of disease all at once. This could save millions of euros and stop the spreading of communicable infectious diseases.

Twenty teams have been chosen to solve the grand challenges of our time in Helsinki Challenge, the science-based idea competition. The teams will tackle the UN’s sustainable development goals and create solutions for, among others, the loneliness of young urban people, aging, malaria and cancer treatment.
