Professor Carlos D. Garcia joins the Associate Editor team

Welcome to Sensors & Diagnostics!

We are delighted to welcome Professor Carlos D. Garcia, Clemson University, USA, as a new Associate Editor for Sensors & Diagnostics.



“This a unique opportunity to promote cutting-edge research from academic and professionals, addressing sustainable global health initiatives from the chemical perspective.”






Dr. Garcia received his B.S. in Biochemistry and Ph.D. in Chemistry from the National University of Cordoba (Argentina) in 1996 and 2001, respectively. From 2002 to 2004, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Mississippi State University and Colorado State University under the supervision of Dr. W. Wilson and Dr. Chuck Henry, respectively. He started his independent career at UT San Antonio and in 2015, he joined Clemson University as Professor in Analytical Chemistry. In 2018 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. His group is focused on the study of interactions of proteins with nanostructured surfaces and their use in analytical chemistry. Additionally, they are developing microfluidic devices to monitor biologically active compounds. His research has received support from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, National Agency for Space and Aeronautics, and the Office of Naval Research.

Please join us in welcoming Professor Garcia to Sensors & Diagnostics.



With a broad scope covering physical, chemical and bio sensors as well as sensor devices and systems, Sensors & Diagnostics journal will be the Royal Society of Chemistry’s gold open access home for high impact sensors research.

The journal will complement our existing journal Lab on a Chip, allowing it to retain its strong focus on microfluidics and miniaturised devices. Article processing charges will be waived until mid-2024.
