This book illustrates a variety of challenges that bug hunters try to solve. It is an outstanding collection of the insights and expertise of an interdisciplinary group of researchers from all walks of life: virologists, physicians, immunologists, electrochemists, physicists, computer scientists, biotechnologists, epidemiologists, and molecular bio

About the Editors

Robert S. Marks earned his Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science and did his postdoctoral research at the University of Cambridge. He is a full professor at the Department of Biotechnology Engineering, the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, and is affiliated to the National Institute for Biotechnology in the Negev and the Ilse Kats Centre for Nanotechnology. He is currently a program coordinator for the NRF CREATE program "Nanomaterials for Water and Energy Management" through MSE at the Nanyang Technological University. Prof. Marks has published in viral immunosensors and has extensive experience in biosensors. He has developed new sensor configurations, such as establishing diagnostics based on luminescence emitted by primed neutrophils, and is the editor-in-chief of the 2007 two-volume Wiley Handbook in Biosensors and Biochips as well as author of more than 100 papers and numerous chapters.

Leslie Lobel earned his B.A., summa cum laude, in chemistry from Columbia College of Columbia University and attended the Medical Scientist Training Program at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University, earning his M.D. and Ph.D. in 1988. He was awarded a Helen Hay Whitney Fellowship for postdoctoral training. After postdoctoral work in the laboratory of H. Robert Horvitz at MIT, he returned to the Department of Medicine at Columbia University before moving to the Department of Virology at Ben Gurion University, where he set up a laboratory of immunovirology and viral therapeutics in 2003. His work includes studies on the profile of the immune response to various viral diseases.

Amadou Alpha Sall is a virologist and has a Ph.D. in public health. He received his scientific education in France at the universities Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, Paris-Sud, Orsay, and Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris. Currently he is the head of the Arboviruses and Viral Hemorrhagic Fever unit, director of
