Albert van den Berg

Albert van den Berg received his PhD at the University of Twente in 1988 on the topic of chemically modified ISFETs. From 1988-1993 he worked in Neuchatel, Switzerland, at the CSEM and the University (IMT) on miniaturized chemical sensors. From 1993 until 1999 he was research director Micro Total Analysis Systems (μTAS) at MESA, University of Twente, a topic that was extended to Miniaturized Chemical Systems (MiCS) in 1999.

In 1998 he was appointed as part-time professor “Biochemical Analysis Systems”, and later in 2000 as full professor on Miniaturized Systems for (Bio)Chemical Analysis in the faculty of Electrical Engineering, embedded the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology. In 2002 he received the Simon Stevin Master award from the Dutch Technical Science foundation (STW).

In 2003 he was appointed as captain of the Nanofluidics Flagship within the national nanotechnology program Nanoned. In 2005 he stayed for 6 months San Diego (USA) at the La Jolla Insitute for Allergy and Immunology  (LIAI, group Green) during a sabbatical leave.  His current research interests focus on microanalysis systems and nanosensors, nanofluidics and single cells on chips.
