Dr. Josep Llu?s Acero (Spain, 1977) obtained his BSc in Chemical Engineering (2002), MSc in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (2007) and PhD in Nanoscience, Materials and Chemical Engineering (2017) from the University Rovira i Virgili (Spain). In 2004 he started to work in the Nanobiotechnology and Bioanalysis Group (now Interfibio) from the URV, place where he is currently working as researcher and project manager. He specialized in the development of ultra-sensitive optical and electrochemical immuno- and geno-sensors for medical, environmental and food sciences. Currently his work relies on the development of surface chemistry methodologies to enhance the biosensors performance and design and fabrication of electrode microarrays. In 2015 he was awarded with a Tecniospring fellowship to develop and integrated platform for the isolation and analysis of cell-free nucleic acids for non-invasive pre-natal testing. He has published more than 20 peer-reviewed articles and has participated in six European Union funded projects.
