Prof. Dr. Jean-Manuel Segura graduated from EPFL in chemical engineering and obtained his Ph.D. from ETHZ in physical chemistry. He then specialized in biophysics and bioanalytics, especially in advanced fluorescence technologies, during several post-docs and group leader positions in The Netherlands and Switzerland. He joined the Institute Life Technologies as a professor of general and analytical chemistry in 2008.
His research focusses on the design and development of novel bioanalytical assays and biosensors for various onsite applications, in particular for rapid point-of-care testing in in vitro diagnostics. His expertise lies at the crossroad between assay development, paper-based analytical devices, bioconjugate synthesis and fluorescence technologies.
His current research interests include:
