Camelia Bala serves as professor of Analytical Chemistry in Faculty of Chemistry where she began her academic career in 1990. She received her doctoral degree in Chemistry from the University of Bucharest (1997). Since 2000, she is Director of R&D Center LaborQ and coordinates the research group working in analytical electrochemistry, nanostructured electrochemical interfaces, design and characterization of electrochemical sensors and biosensors., bioanalytical chemistry. She is member of editorial board of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220) and Chemistry Journal of Moldova (ISSN 1857-1727). In 2017 she was awarded by The Romanian Academy with “ Nicolae Teclu”. Since 2011, she is Director of Doctoral School of Chemistry.
• sensors and biosensors addressing current emerging problems of clinical, food and environmental importance.
•bioanalytical chemistry focusing on investigations of basic biochemical mechanisms at bio-interfaces, biomimetic materials and artificial receptors.
Current projects include: (i) low cost field portable sensing platforms integrating biomimetic systems for rapid screening of undesirable substances in food and environment, (ii) novel electrode materials, nanostructured materials, surface–modified electrodes and conducting polymers, (iii) electrochemical enzyme biosensors, (iv) acoustic and surface plasmon resonance transducers for immunoassay, (v) ionic liquids based composite for sensing, (vi) micro/nanosensors for early cancer warning system diagnostic and prognostic information.
