General introduction

I am working on a PhD thesis in the field of liquid chromatography. My promotor is Prof. Sebastiaan Eeltink.

Research

The main focus of the study is to create faster and more efficient paths towards high quality one- and two-dimensional liquid chromatography methods for the analysis of biomolecules. As such, I will focus on the development of aqueous SEC and HIC methods. This allows to significantly shorten method development time and realize better separations.

Detailed insights concerning the chemical composition of therapeutic proteins improve the understanding how these affect the biological activity, distribution, and excretion. This will enable the development of better (i.e., more stable) and hence safer biopharmaceutical products.
