Prof. Andrew deMello
Francis Crick Institute, London, UK
- Andrew is currently Professor of Biochemical Engineering in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at ETH Zurich and Head of the Institute for Chemical and Bioengineering. Prior to his arrival in Zurich he was Professor of Chemical Nanosciences and Head of the Nanostructured Materials and Devices Section in the Chemistry Department at Imperial College London.
- His research interests cover a broad range of activities in the general area of microfluidics and nanoscale science.
- Primary specializations include the development of microfluidic devices for high-throughput biological and chemical analysis, ultra-sensitive optical detection techniques, nanofluidic reaction systems for chemical synthesis, novel methods for nanoparticle synthesis, the exploitation of semiconducting materials in diagnostic applications, the development of intelligent microfluidics and the processing of living organisms.
- Science originating from the deMello group has been recognized through the award of the 2002 SAC Silver Medal (Royal Society of Chemistry), the 2009 Clifford Paterson Medal from The Royal Society, the 2009 Corday Morgan Medal (Royal Society of Chemistry) and the 2007 Clark Memorial Lectureship (California State University).
- Most recently Andrew was awarded the 2012 Pioneers of Miniaturization Lectureship by Dow Corning and the RSC.
