The Power List 2014

Deirdre Cabooter

Assistant Professor, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Department of Pharmaceutical and Pharmacological Sciences, University of Leuven, Belgium.

Calling: “I’ve been hooked to the diversity, challenges and possibilities of research since my master’s degree and have wanted to pursue a career in research ever since.”
Regret: “No. I love every single aspect of my job: the research, interaction with students and the diversity in my daily activities.”
Emphasis: “The investigation, development and implementation of novel liquid chromatographic techniques for pharmaceutical analysis.”
Triumph: “Being a research professor at KU Leuven: a prestigious position with reduced teaching load that allows me to focus on research.”
Respect: Gert Desmet – he is my mentor, a former promoter and a friend who introduced me into the world of chromatography with all his enthusiasm. He continues to inspire me.

Pat Sandra – he allowed me to spend a lot of time in his research lab during my PhD studies and further aroused my interest in chromatography. His knowledge of chromatography is limitless.”
Hopes: “To expand and establish my own research group wherein I can share my enthusiasm and passion for research with young researchers.”
Advice: “Collaborate with other scientists to broaden your knowledge and field of expertise, work hard and never give up!”

Top 40 Under 40

In 2013, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential analytical scientists – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. Our 2014 Top 40 Under 40 list almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977.
