Professor Bo Liedberg is professor of Materials Science at the School of Materials Science and Enginering (MSE), NTU. He joined NTU as a full faculty in 2012 after having spent three years as visiting professor at MSE (on leave from Linköping University, LiU, Sweden). Professor Liedberg has been involved in setting up a new, university wide, initiative on Biomimetic Sensor Science jointly with faculties at NTU, and he is currently the director of the Center for Biomimetic Sensor Science (CBSS). Professor Liedberg is also serving as the Dean of Interdisciplinary Graduate School. Liedberg has published more than 280 papers/reviews in peer-reviewed international Journals and Magazines.
Professor Liedberg is a surface physicist/chemist by training, and he has a long experience in structural and function characterization of thin molecular films and self assembled architectures on solid supports. He has also been the Lead-PI for a strong activity in bio- and chemical sensing. Most of his current activities are devoted to biomimetics and the development of new and robust sensor technologies for field testing, e.g. of toxins and biomarkers for infectious diseases.
