  Professor Anthony PF Turner PhD, DSc, FRSC

Visiting Professor

 

Professor Anthony (Tony) Turner has been working with the team in Florence since 1987. A regular visitor to the laboratory, he has supervised many joint Masters and PhD students and conducted collaborative research with Florence for over twenty years. In particular, he has led a number of EU Concerted Actions and Thematic Networks in which Florence was a principal partner.

 

Professor Turner's name is synonymous with the field of biosensors. He led the team that pioneered the technology that now dominates the home blood glucose monitoring market and continues to work for and advise companies and governments worldwide in analytical biotechnology. He has also served as an Expert Witness in patent litigations on three continents. 

 

He currently holds a chair as Distinguished Professor of Biotechnology at Cranfield University in the UK, but from autumn 2010, Professor Turner will be based principally in the IFM (Department of Physics, Biology and Chemistry) at Linköping University, Sweden, where he will be heading a new Biosensors and Bioelectronics Centre.

 

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, has higher doctorates for his exceptional contribution to biosensors and his contribution to higher education, and is a Foreign Associate of the USA National Academy of Engineering. Professor Turner has edited the principal journal in the field, Biosensors & Bioelectronics, since its foundation in 1985 and published the first text book on Biosensors in 1987. He has over 600 publications and patents in the field of biosensors and biomimetic sensors and has presented well over 400 keynote and plenary lectures.
