Samuel Sánchez is a chemist specialized in electrochemical nano-bio-sensors during his PhD. He obtained his Master and PhD in Analytical Chemistry from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain, in 2005 and 2008 respectively. After a short period as an Assistant Professor, he moved to Japan with a tenure-track position to work on catalytic nanomotors at the International Research Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (ICYS-MANA), National Institute for Materials Science. In May 2010 he moved to the Institute for Integrative Nanoscience at the Leibniz Institute in Dresden where he was leading the “Biochemical Nanomembranes” group. Since September 2013, he is leading the independent research group at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems “Smart Nano-Bio-Systems”. Since January 2015 he is also ICREA Research Professor at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia, in Barcelona, Spain. He received several awards for his work: the Guinness World Record® for “The smallest man-made jet engine” in September 2010, the IIN-IFW Research Prize 2011, the ERC-Starting Grant 2012 “Lab-in-a-tube and Nanorobotic Biosensors (LT-NRBS)”, Best poster award at “Downscaling Science” Herrenhäuser conference, the MIT TR35 as the “Innovator of the year 2014” in the Spanish edition. He was selected for the “Emerging Investigator” issue by Chem. Communications Journal and among “Future Leaders in Nano-architectonics” by Sci. Tech. Adv. Mat.in 2014. His work has been highlighted in different media, TV, newspapers and online articles (e.g.: MDR Hier ab Vier, Newscientist, Nanowerk, Chemistry World, etc.). His main interests span from chemically powered nanorobotics, biophysics and integrated biosensors.
