Group Leader

ICREA Research Professor and leader of the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, Arben Markoçi obtained his PhD at the Universiteti i Tiranës (Albania) on ion selective electrodes. Since 1992 he has carried out research as postdoctoral fellow and research professor at Polytechnic University of Budapest (Hungary), University of Ioannina (Greece), Università degli Studi di Padova (Italy), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and New Mexico State University.

His research is focused on the integration of biological molecules and other species with micro- and nanostructures of interest for the design of novel (bio)sensors. Prof. Merkoçi is co-founder of two spin off companies, GraphenicaLab dedicated to graphene patterning and PaperDrop to clinical diagnostics.He has published more than 250 articles and supervised around 25 PhD theses.
