This morning, the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science will be presented to Michael Roper of Florida State University.

Roper is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Florida State University and a member of the Molecular Biophysics Program. Roper’s group develops new methods and techniques to investigate biological signaling. Specifically, the group has developed multiplexed electrophoretic immunoassays to simultaneously measure the release of insulin, glucagon, and islet amyloid polypeptide from islets of Langerhans. They are now incorporating these assays on microfluidic devices using novel optical detection tools to increase the temporal resolution of peptide release.

The symposium honoring Roper will be held today at 8:30 am in room S401a, and will include talks from Roper as well as from Alan Marshall of Florida State University, Stephen G. Weber of the University of Pittsburgh, Susan M. Lunte of the University of Kansas, and Norman Dovichi of the University of Notre Dame.
