Hage’s general research involves the design and use of affinity-based separations in high-performance liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and other systems for clinical, pharmaceutical, and environmental analysis. His specific interests include the theory and development of chromatographic-based immunoassays, the study of biological interactions by using affinity-based separation methods, the behavior of protein-based chiral separations, the production of novel supports or immobilization schemes for affinity-based methods, and the creation and behavior of hybrid or miniaturized affinity separation platforms.  He is also interested in the use of affinity-based separations, both alone and in combination with mass spectrometry, as tools for personalized medicine and functional proteomics.
Receiving a B.S. in both Chemistry and Biology from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Iowa State University. He was a postdoctoral fellow in Clinical Chemistry at the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Mayo Clinic before joining the Chemistry Department at the University of Nebraska as an Assistant Professor in 1989. Eventually becoming a Full Professor of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, at the University of Nebraska. He was named Charless Bessey Professor at the University of Nebraska in 2006 and became the James Hewett University Professor in 2012.
The author of over 240 research publications, reviews and book chapters, he was also the editor for the Handbook of Affinity Chromatography, 2nd edition. Currently the lead author on a college textbook entitled Analytical Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis, an editor for the Journal of Chromatography B and also serves on the editorial board for Bioanalysis.  His research programs have trained over 54 students who have received Ph.D. or M.S. degrees. 
Previously Professor Hage has received the Young Investigator Award from the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, an Excellence in Graduate Education Award from the University of Nebraska, and a University of Nebraska College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Research and Creative Achievement Award.  He has received two top-cited article awards, each spanning a time period of five years, from the Journal of Chromatography.
