Three Gurus of Nano and Micro Analysis
Robert Kennedy, Albert van den Berg, and Juan Santiago describe significant breakthroughs in micro and nanoscale analytical techniques and envisage where they might take us next.

Robert Kennedy is the Willard Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Pharmacology at the University of Michigan. His research interests are analytical chemistry and its application to neuroscience, endocrinology, and biotechnology. His group developed instrumentation that couples sampling probes to capillary electrophoresis, capillary chromatography, mass spectrometry, and microfluidic assays for monitoring neurotransmitters in vivo. These methods have been used for studying changes in neurotransmitter concentrations associated with behavior and disease. Kennedy is Associate Editor of Analytical Chemistry and Director of the Microfluidics in Biomedical Sciences Training Program at Michigan.
Juan G. Santiago is Professor and Chair of the Thermosciences Group of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. His research includes the development of microsystems for on-chip chemical analysis, drug delivery, and sample preparation methods. Applications of this work include genetic analysis, drug discovery, and environmental monitoring. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, Associate Editor of the journal Lab on a Chip, and director of the Stanford Microfluidics Laboratory. Santiago has graduated 20 PhD students and advised nine postdoctoral researchers; 12 of these are now professors at major universities.
Albert van den Berg is professor and chair of the BIOS Lab-on-a-chip group at the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. His current research focuses on microanalysis systems and nanosensors, nanofluidics and single cells and tissues on chips. Applications in personalized health care, drug development and development of sustainable (nano)technologies are of particular interest to him. Van Den Berg has co-authored 250 papers, holds 10 patents, has participated in six spin-off companies, and is also Associate Editor of the journal Lab on a Chip. In 2011, he became a board member of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences (KNAW).
