János Vörös is an Associate Professor in the Institute for Biomedical Engineering of the University and ETH Zurich (Department for Information Technology and Electrical Engineering) heading the Laboratory for Biosensors and Bioelectronics since 1st of January, 2006.
Born on June 24th of 1970 in Keszthely, Hungary, János Vörös has studied Physics at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. After receiving a diploma in Physics in 1995, he was a doctoral student at the Department of Biological Physics of the Eötvös University (in collaboration with Microvacuum Ltd.) where he received his PhD in Biophysics in 2000. Since 1998 he was a member of the BioInterface group in the Laboratory for Surface Science and Technology at the Department of Materials of ETH Zurich as visiting scientist, postdoc, and from 2004 as group leader of the Dynamic BioInterfaces group until 2006. Prof. Vörös also has an adjunct appointment at the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics of the Pennsylvania State University.
Prof. Vörös is interested in research and teaching in the areas of Bioelectronics, Nano-Biotechnology, Biosensors, Biophysics, and Biomaterials with special focus on the understanding, monitoring and controlling of molecular and cellular processes at biological interfaces. His research group focuses on the development of novel microarray based biosensor techniques for diagnostics and drug discovery in collaboration with academic and industrial partners, as well as on using nanobiotechnology for interfacing neural networks and controlling synapse formation.
