Professor Sabine Szunerits joins as co-Editor -in-Chief

Welcome to Sensors & Diagnostics!

We are delighted to welcome Professor Sabine Szunerits, University of Lille, France, as co-Editor-in-Chief of Sensors & Diagnostics.

An Austrian-educated native, Dr. Sabine Szunerits received her PhD from Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London, in 1998. She undertook postdoctoral work at the ENS, Paris, Tufts University, Boston, ENSCPB, Bordeaux, and CEA Grenoble, France, before starting her independent research career as a professor in 2004 at the INPGrenoble.  In 2009 she joined the University of Lille, notably the Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (IEMN), as Full Professor in Chemistry. In 2010 she was appointed ‘member junior‘ at the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) for a period of 5 years for her research excellence. In 2018 she was awarded the ‘médaille d’argent du CNRS‘ for her contribution to sensors and nanomedicine for fighting bacterial and viral infections. Her research group interests focus on the use of chemistry and materials science principles to tackle unmet medical- and biosensing-related problems such as fighting viral and bacterial infections using nanomaterials, sensitive bacterial and viral sensing, or transdermal delivery of macromolecular drugs. She is also one of the co-founders of CorDial-IT, a start-up in innovative sensing technology.

Professor Szunerits has published many highly-cited papers throughout her career to date, and continues to be an influential and well-respected member of the sensing community. Read some of her recent papers below.
