Elisabeth Verpoorte's Biography



Elisabeth Verpoorte, Professor of Analytical Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Analysis, University of Groningen

E.M.J. (Sabeth) Verpoorte has almost 30 years of research experience in the microfluidics or lab-on-a-chip field. Her introduction to the field came in 1990, when she came from Canada as a postdoctoral researcher to the pioneering ┬ÁTAS group headed by Professor Andreas Manz at Ciba Ltd., Basel, Switzerland. In 2003, Sabeth made a strategic switch to assume a Chair in the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy, making a foray into a new research environment dominated by cells, tissue and drug development. Ongoing projects involve the development of organ-on-a-chip systems to study drug metabolism (liver chip, gut chip), assess organ interactions (intestine-liver chip) and diagnose endothelial dysfunction. Efforts have also concentrated on continuous-flow particle separation strategies, paper microfluidics, as well as miniaturized analytical instrumentation (paper spray ionization, multidimensional chromatography). The acquisition of interdisciplinary projects involving scientists from the life sciences, chemical, and physics disciplines continues to be a driving force in her research.

Organs-on-chips (OoC) can be viewed as biological processing units, meant to replicate on a smaller scale the cell architecture and functioning of the organs they represent. OoC may be used to probe and thus better understand the mechanisms by which organs function. Mostly, though, they will be used as in vitro processing tools, to yield insight as to the fate of compounds like drugs or foodstuffs in vivo. Either way, merging analytical detection technologies with microfluidics and cell culture is key to the development of these systems for advanced in vitro analysis. Several examples of analytical approaches for monitoring liver slice behavior stemming from our labs will be presented in this presentation.
