Sam Tothill's Biography

Sam Tothill, Professor of Biosensors in Health, Cranfield University

Sam has a PhD in Analytical Biochemistry from Cranfield University, where she conducted original research in enzyme catalysis and their application in biotechnology and diagnostics developments. She has MSc in Microbial Biochemistry and was awarded the top student award for her BSc degree.

Sam is a member of the Biochemical Society (UK), the editorial advisory board of the British Journal of Medical Practitioners (BJMP) and the Society of Authors, member of the Biosensors Special Interest Group (BioSIG) steering committee (Sensors and Instrumentation KTN). In addition she has served on the editorial board of the Journal of Biological physics and Chemistry (JBPC), as MSc Course Director, Deputy Education Director, Associate Dean for the Faculty of Medicine and Biosciences and as Director for the Sensors for Water Interest Group (SWIG).

Dr Sam Tothill (Reader in Analytical Biochemistry) leads the analytical biochemistry research activity within Cranfield Health and is Head of Advanced Diagnostics and Sensors Group at Cranfield University, with a group of approximately eight postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Her current interests centre on the diagnostics arena, with research covering the medical, foods and environmental sectors and these include:

- Molecular recognition, sensing and diagnostics development
- Nanotechnology and its application in analytical and life sciences
- The use of bioinformatics tools for novel artificial receptor design and discovery
- Enzymology and biocatalysis

Since the advent of the biosensor for glucose monitoring around the mid-eighties, there has been a phenomenal growth in the field of biosensor development with emerging applications in a wide range of disciplines, including medical, food and environmental diagnostics. This has been as a result of the increase in demand to develop rapid diagnostic for point- of- care testing and also to comply with environmental legislations and food safety and quality standards. With the emerging field of nanotechnology, new nanomaterials and micro/nano transducer devices have been introduced to the biosensor arena and applied to develop advanced and highly sensitive sensor devices. This presentation will cover the recent developments and advances in biosensor fabrication and the emerging synthetic receptors and nanomaterial’s used for their developments giving examples of recent work conducted by the group.
