Since four decades, rapid detection and monitoring in clinical and food diagnostics and in environmental and biodefense have paved the way for the elaboration of electrochemical biosensors. Thanks to their adaptability, ease of use in relatively complex samples, and their portability, electrochemical biosensors now are one of the mainstays of analy

About the Editor

Serge Cosnier is research director at CNRS and head of the Department of Molecular Chemistry at Grenoble Alpes University, France. He received his doctoral degree in chemistry from Toulouse University (1982) and was an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Cosnier's activity is focused on biosensors, biofuel cells, electrogenerated polymers, molecular electrochemistry, and carbon nanotubes. He has made important contributions in the area of enzymatic biofuel cells, electrochemical biosensors, immunosensors and DNA sensors, and inorganic composite modified electrodes and is an international leader in the field of electropolymerized films applied to bioelectrochemistry. Dr. Cosnier has authored over 285 peer-reviewed publications (h-index 48), 2 books, and 17 book chapters; holds 13 patents; and was the president of the French Group of Bioelectrochemistry (2001-2014). In 2009, he received the Katsumi Niki Prize of the International Society of Electrochemistry and was appointed Fellow of the society in 2010. In 2013, Dr. Cosnier became a member of the Academia Europaea and was nominated as a finalist for the European Inventor Award 2014 by the European Patent Office.
