Cecilia Jiménez-Jorquera

Senior Researcher
PhD in Chemistry






I am Scientific Researcher of the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona (IMB-CNM), of the CSIC. I have been doing my activity in the IMB-CNM since January 2000, the year in which I joined as a Tenured Scientist the Chemical Transducers (GTQ) group. From January 2003 to June 2013 I was the Director of the GTQ. I have been a member of the Area Commission of Science and Physical Technologies of the CSIC from July 2008 to June 2012. I am the Deputy Director of the IMB-CNM from July 2016.

I have participated in 3 EU projects, being the IP of a FP7 project within the SME-Capacities (Widesens) program. I am currently the IP of the Wecare project of the SNF Sinergia program, Switzerland. This project aims to develop flexible platforms for monitoring biomarkers in sweat during physical exercise. I have participated in 29 national and regional projects, of which I have coordinated 12. I collaborate with companies in the sectors of instrumentation and environmental control to develop multi-sensor systems, having participated to date in 21 contracts with companies, of which I have been responsible for 13. I have published around 90 articles in internationally renowned journals in the field of sensors and microsystems and 3 book chapters.

My research activity focuses on the design and manufacture of chemical sensors manufactured with microelectronic technology and their integration into microsystems of µTAS (micro Total Analysis Systems) and Lab on Chip (LoC). For this activity, I have considered both the technological innovation of the sensor / system and its applicability in a particular industrial sector that demonstrates the real utility of the device, its competitiveness in the current market and its social utility.
