Professor
Tony Cass
Prof Tony Cass is a Professor of Chemical Biology in the Department of Chemistry and Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London and a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Chemistry and Society of Biology. He is a chemist with degrees from the Universities of York and Oxford.

His research interests are in analytical biotechnology and molecular engineering. Designing new reagents for biosensors and bioanalysis and in microfabrication for device structures, he also pioneered the use of synthetic electron transfer mediators for enzyme biosensors. His work in this area led to the development of the first electronic blood glucose measuring system, commercialised by MediSense Inc.  (now part of Abbott Diagnostics), and the award of the Royal Society’s Mullard Medal (along with Professor HAO Hill FRS and Dr MJ Green) and a Chemical Landmark Award (with Professor HAO Hill FRS and Dr Graham Davis).
Most of his current research is focussed on using engineered proteins and nucleic acids in micro-and nano-structured materials and devices for both clinical and environmental analysis.
