Professor Anthony (Tony) Turner’s name is synonymous with the field of Biosensors. He led the group which developed the world’s most successful type of biosensor, the hand-held mediated amperometric glucose sensor for people with diabetes. In November 2010, he moved his research activities to Sweden to head the Biosensors and Bioelectronics Centre at Linköping University, while continuing to advise Cranfield University (UK) on innovation. He was elected a Fellow of the UK Royal Society of Chemistry (1996) and awarded a Higher Doctorate (DSc) for his exceptional contribution to biosensors by the University of Kent (2001) and an Honorary DSc by the University of Bedfordshire (2008). He was admitted to the USA National Academy of Engineering as a Foreign Associate in 2006, for his work on glucose sensors, environmental monitors and synthetic recognition molecules. He was awarded the Theophilus Redwood Medal, from the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK), for his outstanding contribution to Analytical Science (2011), the Acharya Vinova International Award (India) for his “notable and outstanding contribution in the field of Biosensors and Bioelectronics” (2012) and was named Advanced Materials Laureate by the International Association of Advanced Materials at the World Congress in Turkey (2013). In 2016, he was awarded the Ukraine's highest academic accolade, the Vernadsky Gold Medal, by the Ukrainian Academy of Science and also received the Datta Medal from the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS). Professor Turner has >750 publications and patents in the field of biosensors and biomimetic sensors and an h-index of 76. He co-founded and has edited the principal journal in the field, Biosensors & Bioelectronics, since 1985 and edited the first textbook on Biosensors in 1987. In addition to advising companies and governments worldwide in the general area of analytical biotechnology, he has served as an expert witness in patent litigations on three continents.
