SELECTBIO Conferences Lab-on-a-Chip European Congress

Lab-on-a-Chip European Congress Keynote Speakers



Jon Cooper
Professor, University of Glasgow

Jonathan Cooper has pioneered technologies in biosensors (1980s), protein and DNA microarrays (1990s) and Lab-on-a-Chip and Bionanotechnology (2000s). He has published ca. 200 research papers, is the founder of Mode Diagnostics (producing home diagnostics for bowel cancer), and of ClydeBiosciences (developing toxicity tests). In his recent research, he has focused upon using phononics in the field of medical diagnostics. In one example, using phononics, he has created frequency dependent acoustic lenses and mirrors with phononic crystals to enable generic platforms for low cost diagnostics. Jon was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2004. He was appointed to the Wolfson Chair in Biomedical Engineering in 2009 and was awarded a Royal Society Merit Award in 2010.

Ali Khademhosseini
Professor, Harvard Medical School

Ali Khademhosseini is an associate professor affiliated with the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Wyss Institute and Harvard Medical School. He also directs a satellite laboratory at the WPI-AIMR at Tohoku University. He has authored over 200 papers in peer reviewed journals and numerous other works. He has received over 30 major awards including the United States Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the Pioneers of Miniaturization award and the Technology Review Magazine TR35 award. He received his Ph.D. in bioengineering from MIT, and MASc and BASc degrees from University of Toronto both in chemical engineering.

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

E.M.J. (Sabeth) Verpoorte has more than 26 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 in the pioneering µTAS group headed by Professor A. Manz at Ciba Ltd., Basel, Switzerland. In July 1996 she became a team leader in the group of Professor Nico F. de Rooij at the Institute of Microtechnology (IMT), University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, where her research interests concentrated on microfluidics for (bio)analytical applications. 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. She is or has been involved in several international scientific organizations and journal editorial boards.
