PhD Chemistry








Dr. César Fernández-Sánchez holds a BSc in Analytical Chemistry (1993) and a PhD in Chemistry (1999), both from the University of Oviedo (Spain). From 2001 to 2003, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow, being awarded a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (6th EU Framework Programme), at the Newcastle University (UK) in the field of impedance-based biosensors. In 2004, he moved to Barcelona and joined the Chemical Transducers Group at the Barcelona Institute for Microelectronics (IMB-CNM (CSIC)), as a tenure-track Ramon y Cajal researcher. Since 2009, he holds a permanent position as a Tenured Scientist (Científico Titular) at IMB-CNM. Since 2013, he is the Head of the Chemical Transducers Group at IMB-CNM (gtq.imb-cnm.csic.es/en).

He has actively worked on the development of analytical microsystems including lab-on-chip devices, integrating electrochemical sensors based on different transduction modes (amperometry, voltammetry and impedance spectroscopy) and (bio)chemical receptors. His research interests also include the biofunctionalisation of substrates and the application of nanomaterials and organic-inorganic polymeric materials for the development of chemical sensors.

He has participated in 25 projects (14 coordinated by him), granted by the Spanish Government, and participated in 9 EU projects (2 as PI of his institution and 1 as coordinator) of the FP7 and H2020 framework programmes. He has published seventy-eight peer-reviewed articles (h index: 26; citations: 1845), co-supervised 8 PhD Theses (3 more ongoing), presented 106 communications to conferences (10 invited) and co-authored 11 patents (two of them licenced), all in the area of analytical electrochemistry and microsystems for biomedical and environmental analysis.
