The medal commemorates the late Dr. Bruno Breyer, a pioneer of alternating current polarography in Australia. The medal is awarded for internationally-recognized contributions in the field of electrochemistry. It will be presented at the 10th spring meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry, taking place in Perth, on April 15.
Joseph Wang obtained his higher education at the Israel Institute of Technology and was awarded his D.Sc. in 1978. He has served as a research associate at the University of Wisconsin and at New Mexico State University, both USA.
Wang’s research focuses on the field of nanobioelectronics in which nanomaterials are applied to the analysis of biomolecules. Much of his work is directed toward electrochemical sensing devices for clinical point-of-care testing and environmental monitoring.
He is currently the Chief-Editor of the international journal Electroanalysis and has been a member of the Advisory Editor Board of many analytical journals.
