Anthony Turner's Biography

Anthony Turner, Professor, Linkoping University

Professor Anthony (Tony) Turner’s name is synonymous with the field of Biosensors. In November 2010, he joined Linköping University to create a new Centre for Biosensors and Bioelectronics. His previous thirty-five year academic career in the UK culminated in the positions of Principal of Cranfield University at Silsoe and Distinguished Professor of Biotechnology; he is now an Emeritus Professor at Cranfield. In addition to his academic and management roles, he had overall responsibility there for leveraging Cranfield University's IP via spin outs and licensing. In 2016, Prof Turner was awarded the Ukraine’s highest academic honour, the Vernadsky Gold Medal from the National Academy of Sciences. He was elected to the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences in 2013 and was made a Fellow of the UK Royal Society of Chemistry in 1996. He was awarded a Higher Doctorate (DSc) for his exceptional contribution to biosensors by the University of Kent in 2001 and an Honorary DSc by the University of Bedfordshire in 2008, where he served as a Governor for six years. He was made a Foreign Associate of the USA National Academy of Engineering in 2006, for his work on glucose sensors, environmental monitors and synthetic recognition molecules and is a Visiting Professor at various universities in the UK, Italy, Korea, Japan and China. Anthony Turner has over 750 publications and patents (>350 refereed journal papers and reviews) in the field of biosensors and biomimetic sensors and is probably best known for his role in the development of commercial glucose sensors for home-use by people with diabetes. He has an h-index of 68. He published the first textbook on Biosensors in 1987, is Editor-In-Chief of the principal journal in his field, Biosensors & Bioelectronics (Elsevier) and chairs the World Congress on Biosensors, which he founded in 1990.

This presentation will describe the evolution of a new generation of printed sensing instruments, where not only the sensors are screen-printed, but also the circuits, displays and batteries. We are creating use-and-throw instruments for a wide range of sensing applications including the detection of multiple metabolites, microbial pathogens, drugs and toxins.
