About the Serial Volume Editor

Arben Merkoci

ICREA Research Professor and leader of the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, Arben Merkoçi obtained his PhD at the University of Tirana (Albania) in ion selective electrodes. Since 1992 he has carried out research as postdoctoral fellow and research professor at the Polytechnic University of Budapest (Hungary), University of Ioannina (Greece), Università degli Studi di Padova (Italy), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and New Mexico State University (USA). His research is focused on the integration of biological molecules and other species with micro- and nanostructures of interest in the design of novel (bio)sensors. Prof. Merkoçi is Co-Editor in Chief of Biosensors and Bioelectronics, the principal international journal devoted to research, design development and application of biosensors and bioelectronics, member of editorial board of Electroanalysis, Microchimica Acta and other journals. Prof. Merkoçi has published 305 articles (H-index / citations: Google Scholar 77 / 20908; WOS 63 / 15617) and supervised 30 PhD theses. He is also involved in teaching PhD courses in field of nanomaterial-based biosensors in several Spanish and international centres. He has been member of commission for establishing of the new Nanoscience and Nanotechnology undergraduate academic curricula at UAB, the first one in Spain started during the academic year 2010-2011. He is member of the Academics Working Group of BIST and coordinator of the Nanodiagnostics module of Nanotechnology Master of UAB. He has got several national and international grants related to nanomaterials application in biosensors and his group is collaborating with several worldwide leading labs in the field of nanobiosensors. Prof. Merkoçi serves also as scientific evaluator and member of panels of experts of various international governmental and nongovernmental agencies (FP EU including ERC panel, USA, various EU and other countries), member of scientific committee of various international congresses, director of several workshops and other scientific events and have been invited to give plenary lectures, keynote and invited speeches in more than 200 occasions in various countries. Prof. Merkoçi is the co-founder of two spin-off companies: GraphenicaLab, devoted to graphene patterning, and PaperDrop, to clinical diagnostics.
