Our research center of excellence ‘IDUN’ combines research in nanosensors/centrifugal microfluidics and microfabricated devices for oral drug delivery. This allows us to explore the synergy between sensor development and search for new pharmaceutical delivery tools and materials. I will show examples of recent findings and results within drug/polymer characterization, microdevices for drug delivery and diagnostics. Also, new applications within therapeutic drug monitoring using Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering will be presented as well as sensor integration with centrifugal microfluidics platforms.
Dr. Anja Boisen is a professor and Head of the Centre of Excellence at the department of Micro- and Nanotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark. Dr. Boisen is member of Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters and an elected Fellow of the Electrochemical Society (ECS). Dr. Boisen is pioneer in the area of micromechanics and nanotechnology, and has published over 200 articles in refereed journals. Her research group focuses on the development and application of micro- and nanosensors as well as microsystems for oral drug delivery and has spun out several companies including Cantion, Silmeco, and BluSense Diagnostics. Anja is member of the board of the Danish Innovation Foundation, the board of the Villum Foundation, the Danish Academy of the Technical Sciences and the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences. In 2008, she was awarded the largest research prize in Denmark, the Villum Kann Rasmussen award, followed by the EliteForsk Award from the Danish Ministry of Research, Innovation and Higher Education in 2012. Anja also received the ‘Sapere Aude – top researcher award’ from the Danish Council for Independent Research in 2013.
