Eden Morales-Narváez, PhD

Biophotic Nanosensor Laboratory
Centro de Investigaciones en Óptica A. C.

Eden Morales Narváez  received a degree in Bionics Engineering from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) of Mexico in 2006 and the PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), Spain in 2013. He was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group (led by Prof. Arben Merkoçi), Catalan, Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), Barcelona Spain. He started his independent career in late 2016 as a Full Research Scientist at Center for Research in Optics (CIO) and head of the Biophotonic Nanosensors Laboratory, León Mexico. His research is focused on the development and application of advanced materials for (bio)sensing, particularly using nano(bio)photonics at the cutting-edge. He is particularly interested in healthcare 4.0, nanotechnology, food analysis, environmental monitoring and green technologies, among other fields. He is a lecturer in Biophotonics and Photonic Materials at CIO. He has edited a book on Wearable Sensors and he is also part of the Editorial Board of several journals, including Biosensors and Bioelectronics X, JPhys Photonics, Green Analytical Chemistry, Biosensors and Frontiers (Nanobiotechnology Section). He has also been awarded as an Emerging Leader 2020 by IOP Publishing.

Nanophotonic materials for (bio)sensing.

Nanophotonic materials and their properties endow researchers and technologists with outstanding tools to develop advantageous (bio)sensing systems and detect a myriad of analytes related to health care, environmental monitoring and safety and security. We will discuss the rationale behind nanophotonic materials in biosensing and I will share with all of you my perspectives on this exciting topic.
