Gabriele Favero


Gabriele Favero is Associate Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Drug Technologies of Sapienza University of Rome. He graduated with honors in Chemistry in 1992 with a thesis on whole cell-based biosensors and obtained his PhD in Chemical Sciences in 1997 defending a thesis on the development of sensors and biosensors for the determination of free radicals; during the years 1998-2000 he continued his research activity with two scholarships: one funded by INCA (Inter-university Consortium Chemistry for the Environment) on the development of biosensors for environmental applications and the second one by Sapienza University of Rome concerning the characterization of reconstituted biological membranes. In 2001 he obtained a four years research fellowship by Sapienza University of Rome for the reconstitution of biological membranes suitable to biosensing application followed, in 2006, by another research fellowship financed by the same institution for the study and development of redox mediator-based biosensors. In 2007-2015 he was Assistant Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Sapienza University of Rome and from October 2015 he is Associate Professor for the scientific sector CHIM/01 Analytical Chemistry. His research activity is mainly focused on the study, development and application of biosensors to pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis, ranging from whole cell biosensors to enzymatic biosensors operating either in aqueous solution or in organic solvent and the use of reconstituted biological membranes as sensing elements for amplified-response sensors. Over the more recent years he tackled the different aspects concerning the employment of redox mediators and the development of second- and third-generation electrochemical biosensors. He also contributed to research in different fields of analytical chemistry, the chemistry of cultural heritage and chemical education. He has participated in various research projects of national (PRIN 2002, 2005 and 2008, Ricerche Universitarie e di Ateneo) and international interest (2006-2009 BioMedNaNo Project - Integrating enzymes, mediators and nanostructures to Provide bio-powered bio-electrochemical sensing systems in the Sixth Framework Programme and Project NanoBioWine 2010 - Nanotechnology-based Biosensors for WINE quality control within the Eurostars Programme 2010). He is author of 1 patent, 72 papers including 67 on peer-reviewed international journals, 31 long abstracts and 200 oral or poster contributions to national and international congresses; this scientific production is characterized by the following bibliometric and scientometric parameters: H-index=24; Hc-index=12; Number of citations=1375; Total Impact Factor=215.98; Average Impact Factor=3.224. It is referee of several international journals including Analytica Chimica Acta, Analytical Methods, Biosensors & Bioelectronics, Current Pharmaceutical Analysis, Electrochimica Acta, International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Journal of Chemical Education, Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, Molecules, Sensors, Talanta and he is a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Pharmacovigilance. He is a member of SCI - Italian Chemical Society, ECS - The Electrochemical Society, ISE - International Society of Electrochemistry and the Order of Chemists of Lazio.
