Sergey A Piletsky
Professor in Bioanalytical Chemistry
University of Leicester
A leading expert on Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) and biosensors Sergey Piletsky is a Professor of Bioanalytical Chemistry at University of Leicester and Head of Leicester Biotechnology Group. Leicester Biotechnology Group is prime centre involved in research and development of MIPs and their application in biosensors for environmental, clinical, industrial and food applications. Molecular imprinting of polymers represents the most generic, versatile, scalable and cost-effective approach to the creation of synthetic molecular receptors. Prof. Piletsky supervised work of numerous MSc and PhD students and published over 270 peer-reviewed papers and patent applications. Prof. Piletsky is Visiting Professor in Jinan and Huazhong Universities, China, Toulon University, France, member of Editorial Board of ACS Combinatorial Sciences, Scientific Board of Society of Molecular Imprinting, Fellow of the Society of Biology, Secretary General of the International Union of Advanced Materials.
