Elisabeth Verpoorte's Biography



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.

Utilizing Microfluidic Components to Enhance Performance in Analytical Instrumentation

Microfluidic devices may be implemented either as stand-alone tools or, increasingly, as components to impart additional function to existing instrumentation. This presentation will focus on two examples in which microfluidics is contributing to the development of miniaturized analytical instrumentation.
