This month we interview Zhuoheng Zhou from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium, about his focus on advancing instrumental and column technologies for modern chromatography and its applications in novel biopharmaceutical modalities and proteomics. We also spoke to him about his work developing a protocol to help with the design of polymer monolithic capillary columns.
Zhuoheng Zhou was trained as a chemist at Xiamen University (XMU) before he obtained his MSc degree in analytical chemistry at the Environmental Research Institute, National University of Singapore (NUS). He then enrolled in Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and joined the Bio-Analytical Separation Science (BASS) group as a PhD researcher under the supervision of Sebastiaan Eeltink and Gert Desmet. He is currently conducting his postdoctoral research, which focuses on UHPLC instrumentation and microcolumn technology, and their application in environmental analysis, biopharmaceutical characterization, and proteomic profiling.
