Rui Campos joined the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in April 2023 as a Food Quality and Safety Group research fellow. His work is devoted to developing electrolyte-gated graphene field-effect transistors for the detection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) genes within the scope of the SMARTgNOSTICS project. His research interests are on the development of bioelectrochemical assays for the detection of nucleic acids and small molecules.
Dr Campos holds a PhD in chemistry from Durham University (UK, 2013) where he focused on “Studies of electron transfer on self-assembled monolayers and bilayer lipid membranes”. Before joining INL, he performed postdoctoral work at iNANO (Aarhus University, Denmark), INL (Portugal) and the A-Sense Lab (University of Antwerp, Belgium). In 2018, he was awarded an individual Marie Curie fellowship to develop a multiplex photoelectrochemical biosensor to detect microRNAs associated with prostate cancer.
