The Working Group 'Biosensors' originates from an idea of Luca de Stefano and Francesco Baldini. Its main prerogative is the integration of diverse knowledge and scientific practices, to create an interdisciplinary scientific community that can constructively interact in the field of biophotonics and specifically optical biosensors.

Becaus of its strong interdisciplinary character, optical biosensing involves scientists with very heterogeneous backgrounds, from optics to electronics, from chemistry to biochemistry, from medicine to pharmacology, with the need to find the best comunication and integration modalities regarding the technologies and procedures to work on common projects, with the awareness that a deep cultural gap still exists between the developers and the end users of optical technologies.
