Professor in Biomolecular Analysis/Analytical Chemistry

Prof. Govert Somsen studied Chemistry at VU University with a specialization in Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy. He obtained his doctorate at the VU with professors Brinkman and Velthorst on the coupling of liquid chromatography with vibrational spectroscopy for the identification of compounds in complex mixtures. In 1996, Somsen was appointed assistant professor at the University of Groningen, where he performed research on the development and biomedical application of capillary electrophoretic (CE) techniques. He switched in 2001 to Utrecht University, where he became associate professor. There he focused on integration of CE with mass spectrometry, optical spectroscopy and sample pre-treatment techniques for drug impurity profiling, characterization of therapeutic proteins, and human metabolomics. From 2008 to 2011, he was also reader in Analytical Techniques in the Life Sciences at the Avans University for Applied Sciences in Breda. Somsen acquired substantial funding from NWO (VIDI, ECHO), STW and (bio)pharmaceutical and instrument companies. In 2013, Somsen was appointed full professor Biomolecular Analysis/Analytical Chemistry at VU University.
