Arben Merkoçi's Biography

Arben Merkoçi, ICREA Research Professor and Group Leader, Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Barcelona

Arben Merkoçi is currently ICREA Professor and director of the Nanobioelectronics & Biosensors Group at Institut Català de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia (ICN2). After his PhD (1991) at Tirana University (Albania), in the topic of Ion-Selective-Electrodes (ISEs) Dr. Merkoçi worked as postdoc and senior researcher/invited professor in the field of nanobiosensors and lab-on-a-chip technologies in Italy, Spain, USA and since 2006 at ICN2. Prof. Merkoçi research is focused on the design and application of cutting edge nanotechnology and nanoscience based sensors to be used as cost efficient globally deployable mobile diagnostics platforms. These nanobiosensors involve integration of biological molecules (DNA, antibodies, cells and enzymes) and other (bio)receptors with micro- and nanostructures/motors and are applied in diagnostics, environmental monitoring or safety and security. He has published around 280 peer review research papers (IF 54), supervised 27 PhD students and has been invited to give plenary lectures and keynote speeches in around 150 occasions in various countries. He is co-founder of two spin-off companies, PaperDrop dedicated to nanodiagnostics and GraphenicaLab to electronic printing.
