Juan C. Vidal
Dr. Juan C. Vidal got the BSc (1982) and the PhD (1984) degrees at the University of Zaragoza. He was Assistant Professor (from 1982 to 1986) and nowadays Titular Professor since 1986. He is member of the IUCA (Environmental Sciences Research Institute) and since the final of 80's member of GEAS (Analytical Spectroscopy and Sensors Research Group). His current teaching is conducted in the Department of Analytical Chemistry (Faculty of Sciences) at the University of Zaragoza. His curriculum vitae includes more than 60 scientific research publications in indexed journals, more than 130 communications in national and international meetings, and active participation (or coordination) of more than 30 projects of research with public and private institutions. His research work relates to theoretical and practical development of electrochemical biosensors, working with enzymes, antibodies and aptamers as catalytic and affinity ligands. He is expert in voltammetric techniques, the improvement of the charge-transfer of bio-reagents with electrodes, the characterization of affinity ligands (electrochemical, SPR), the nanostructuration of electrode surfaces, and the analytical applications of nanostructured immunosensors and aptasensors in food and clinical samples.
