Joining the Biomedical Applications Group

I am very excited to announce that earlier this year I have joined the Biomedical Applications Group led by Dr. Rosa Villa. My goal is to focus my work on the development of Electrochemical sensors and biosensors for non-invasive monitoring. In addition, I aim to contribute to the group with my background in Electrochemistry, Prototyping, and Fabrication techniques.

Check out the group's activities HERE.

Call for papers - Sensors Special issue on "Biofuel cells"

I have kindly been asked to serve as guest editor for the special issue on "Biofuel Cells" which will be published in Sensors, a peer-reviewed open access journal on the science and technology of sensors and biosensors covered by indexing services such as Web of Science, Scopus, PubMed. The journal current Impact Factor is 2.033 (

You may find the details on this special issue here.

The deadline for submissions is 31 May 2017.

Instructions and terms for submissions and publications are reported in the call for papers webpage.

We're really looking forward to receiving your manuscripts!

His project goal is to produce a redox polymer for biosensing applications, and involves a collaboration with the molecular electrochemistry group at the University Autonomous of Barcelona.

Call for incoming TECNIOspring fellows.

Enzymatic biosensors in Health and Sport.
42.915€ p.a. plus 8.640€ R&D annual budget and up to 960€ relocation package.

As part of the BioMEMS TECNIO group, we are seeking an excellent post-doctoral researcher to apply for a TECNIOspring fellowship with us. The successful candidate will work on the development of electrochemical enzyme biosensors, with a focus on the transfer of results to industry. The work stems from the DADDi2 project (TEC2013-48506-C3), aimed at the development of a new type of disposable autonomous device for the early diagnosis of Diabetes, but will be focusing on developing skin-patch biosensors for sports (lactate and glucose).

Candidates must have a strong background in Electrochemistry and at least some experience in the area of biosensors.
In addition, it is essential that the candidates:

* Hold a doctoral degree and four additional years of full-time research experience after obtaining it; or have at least eight years of full-time equivalent research experience, including the period of research training after obtaining the degree that would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate.
* Have at least one year of experience in applied research and/or technology transfer activities (R&D projects involving industry, patent licensing, and/or spin-off creation).
* Have experience in the management of research groups.
* Researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (study/work) in Spain for more than 12 months in the 2 years immediately prior to the deadline for submission of applications (June 22nd, 2015).
