Prof. Jan Eijkel
Jan Eijkel received his masters in pharmacy at the University of Amsterdam and his Ph.D. degree in 1995 at the University of Twente with prof.dr. Piet Bergveld. He then became postdoc at Imperial College London with prof. Andreas Manz. Since 2010 he is full professor Nanofluidics for Lab on a Chip Applications at Twente University.
The focus of his research is on the investigation of physicochemical phenomena in micro- and nanofluidic systems, and their practical applications e.g. in Point of Care systems. These investigations include capillary phenomena such as filling and drying, osmosis, o/w two-phase flow, transport and separation of ions and DNA and fluidic energy generation. Jan Eijkel is editor of the Microfluidics and Nanofluidics journal and member of the Executive Technical Program Committee of the MicroTAS conference.
