Maria Teresa Fernández-Abedul's Biography

Maria Teresa Fernández-Abedul, Professor, University of Oviedo

M. Teresa Fernández Abedul obtained her Ph.D in Chemistry in 1995, from the University of Oviedo (Spain). She was awarded with pre- and post-doctoral Scholarships under the supervision of Prof. Wilson at Kansas University and Prof. Heineman at the University of Cincinnati. She directed her research to the field of bioelectroanalysis and, later on, to the integration with microchip electrophoresis. In 1994 she obtained an Assistant Professorship in the Department of Physical and Analytical Chemistry of the University of Oviedo, becoming Associate Professor in 2002. At this moment, she has been credited by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness for Full Professorship. Since she joined the group of Immunoelectroanalysis led by Prof. A.Costa García in 1995, she has participated in more than 25 research projects, 3 of them as principal investigator. She has supervised 5 PhD Thesis and more than 25 Masters, Bachelor’s Thesis and similar research of national and international students. She has co-authored more than 60 peer-reviewed articles in indexed journals and written 6 book chapters. She is member of the Technical Program Committee of MicroTAS 2012, a premier forum for miniaturized systems and microfluidics. She is cofounder of the spin-off MicruxFluidic, an innovative technology-based company focused on the design, development and manufacture of novel miniaturized analytical systems based on lab-on-a-chip technologies in microfluidic and electrochemistry fields. Her interest in the development of low-cost microfluidic devices led her to visit and work during last summers with the group of Prof. Whitesides at Harvard University, maintaining nowadays a continuous and fruitful collaboration. At this moment, her research is devoted to the integration of a sensitive electro(bio)analytical detection on miniaturised devices (paper, thread, polymeric microchips…) using different low-cost mass-produced materials (pins…) and highly-sensitive electrode configurations (interdigitated, microfluidic electrodes…) as well as surface nanostructuration and use of highly-detectable molecules (nanoparticles and nanovesicles).

Thread is an unexplored material that has many advantages when used for analytical applications. In this work, stainless-steel pins were integrated in different analytical systems, including thread-based platforms, as a new generation of low-cost mass-produced electrodes.
