Prof. Abdelhamid Errachid is a Full Professor Classe Exceptionnelle at the University Claude Bernard-Lyon 1 since 2008. He received his PhD degree from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona in 1997. Between 1997 and 2001 he worked as Junior Research Scientist at the Centro National de micro electronica (CNM). He later joined the Department of Electronics of University of Barcelona and IBEC as Senior Research. He has obtained top-level results in the field of silicon-based (bio) chemical sensors using field-effect transistors and micro/Nano electrode structures. His deep knowledge and understanding of the electronic devices structure as well as operation and interplay between (bio) chemical molecules and electronics, has resulted in development of novel (bio) sensor devices such as, the original Nano sensor device based on olfactory proteins developed under SPOT-NOSED project, amongst others). He has an extensive expertise in EU projects coordination and participation, including KardiaTool (H2020-NMBP-X-KET-2017 no. 768686), HEARTEN (H2020-PHC-26-2014, no. 643694), Micromole (H2020-FCT-2014, no. 653626), DiagCan (FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IEF, no. 628363), Seaon-a-Chip (FP7-OCEAN-2013, no. 614168), SMARTCANCERSENS (ICT FP7, no. 294993), and Sensor ART (ICT-FP7, no, 248763) projects. To date, he has published more over than 195-refereed Scopus papers.
