Short Bio:

Dr Serge Cosnier is currently Research Director exceptional class at CNRS and director of the Department of Molecular Chemistry (2012-2020) at the Grenoble Alpes University (France). He received his doctoral degree in Chemistry from the Toulouse university (1982) and was an Alexander von Humbold postdoctoral fellow at the university of Munich, Germany. He is member of the Council of the Bioelectrochemical Society (2016-2023) and serves as editor of Bioelectrochemistry journal and specialty chief editor of Frontiers in Analytical Chemistry. He is or has been also associate editors or member of the editorial board of several journals: Current Analytical Chemistry, Frontiers in Bioenergy and Biofuel, Electroanalysis, Talanta, Current Organic Synthesis, SRX Chemistry, The Open Current Process Chemistry Journal and The Open Analytical Chemistry Journal. \\r\\nDr Cosnier’s activity is focused on the molecular electrochemistry and bioelectrochemistry with the development of electrode materials whose applications include analytical chemistry with biological sensors (enzyme electrodes, immunosensors, aptasensors and DNA sensors), electrocatalysis, electrochemical biomimetic systems and energy conversion (biofuel cells and abiotic fuel cells). He has developed innovative conceptual advances in the field of electrogenerated organic polymers, inorganic nanostructured materials and 3D nanostructured electrode materials based on carbon nanotubes. \\r\\nDr Cosnier has authored over 370 peer reviewed publications (h-index 64), 3 books and 18 book chapters, and holds 19 patents. In 2009, he received the Katsumi Niki Prize of the International Society of Electrochemistry and was appointed as Fellow of this Society in 2010. In 2013, Dr Cosnier became a member of the Academia Europaea and was nominated as a Finalist for the European Inventor Award 2014 by the European Patent Office. In 2015, he was awarded Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Cluj-Napoca (Romania), received the Grand Prix Joseph-Achille Le Bel: Prize awarded by the Chemical Society of France and was nominated Knight of the National Order of the Legion of Honor (France). He received also in 2015 an Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences : CAS President’s international fellowship initiative to distinguished scientists. In 2016, he was nominated Doctor Honoris Causa of the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (Romania) and was the recipient of the 2016 China-France Chemistry Award from the Chinese Chemical Society and the Chemical Society of France. Finally, he was the recipient in 2018 of the Costin D. Nenitescu Medal awarded by the Romanian Chemical Society and was elected member of the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc) in 2019.
