About the Editor:
Dr Chris D. Geddes, Ph.D., Professor, has extensive experience in fluorescence spectroscopy, particularly in fluorescence sensing and metal-fluorophore interactions (Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence), publishing over 190 papers and 18 books. Dr Geddes is internationally known in fluorescence for his scholarly publications and for the development of fluorescence-based plasmonics. He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Fluorescence and founding editor of the Who’s Who in Fluorescence and Annual Reviews in Fluorescence volumes. In addition, due to the labs pioneering efforts in the fields of metallic nanoparticle-fluorophore interactions, Dr Geddes launched the Springer Journal "Plasmonics" in 2005. Dr Geddes is Director of the Institute of Fluorescence at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute which focuses on the nano-bio-technological applications of fluorescence. Dr Geddes frequently chairs NIH study sections, is a frequent member of the NIBIB special emphasis sensing panels and is currently a permanent member of the NIH EBT study section.
