Hervé Cottet, IBMM, Université de Montpellier

Prof. Hervé Cottet is full professor at the Biomolecule Institute in Montpellier (IBMM). His research work concentrates at the interface between separation sciences, analytical chemistry, polymers and pharmaceutical sciences, with expertise in Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) and Taylor Dispersion Analysis (TDA). He is both interested in fundamentals and practical (or industrial) applications of CE and TDA. Recent advances include the development of TDA applications (mRNA loaded lipid nanoparticles, biomolecule aggregation, biomolecular interactions, vaccine antigens, MRI contrast agents…) and a better understanding of TDA principles and limitations (adsorption, coatings, limits in size, processing of the taylorgrams, limit of detection, new detection modes…). He has co-authored more than 150 scientific articles dealing with CE and/or TDA.


Patricia Taladriz & Sandor Balog – Adolphe Merkle Institute, University of Fribourg, Fribourg, Switzerland

Dr. Patricia Taladriz-Blanco obtained her bachelor’s degree (2007) and PhD in chemistry (2012) from the University of Vigo, Spain. Dr. Taladriz is an interdisciplinary researcher working in the field of nanoparticle detection in complex environments, with a particular emphasis on nanoplastics. Her other research interests include thermoplasmonics, microfluidics (microdroplets), and bio-nano interactions. Currently, Dr. Taladriz works as a group leader at the Adolphe Merkle Institute (BioNanomaterials group, Fribourg, Switzerland), and her primary research line focuses on the detection of micro- and nanoplastic particles using well-established nanotechniques such as Raman, DLS, NTA, and TDA, among others.

Sandor Balog obtained a PhD in physics from the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) in 2007 based on experimental studies quantifying universal coherent wave-correlations in multiple light scattering. Before joining the Adolphe Merkle Institute at the University of Fribourg in 2012 as a staff scientist, he worked for the Paul Scherrer Institute (neutron scattering), Lausanne’s Federal Institute of Technology EPFL, (optical microscopy and spectroscopy on photonic crystal cavities) and CERN (optical methods for the Higgs boson and muons). Since 2012, Sandor’s activity has revolved around the theory, practice, and application of scattering, spectroscopy, and microscopy techniques in soft matter research. Taylor dispersion analysis has become a particular interest in the physical characterization of nanoparticles. Sandor’s forte is modelin, simulation, and data analysis, benefitting from applied mathematics and, recently, machine learning techniques

He is also in charge of the Control and Development laboratory unit of the pharmacy department of Clermont-Ferrand’s University Hospital. His current professional interests focus on pharmaceutical preparations (developpement and stability), medical devices and content-container interactions, including how drugs interact with infusion lines, tubings and catheters.

Sameh Obeid, Institut Galien, Université Paris Saclay

Sameh OBEID obtained his PhD in Nanobiotechnology from the University of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté in 2017. After his PhD, he held three post-doctoral positions at different institutes where he worked at the interface between biophysics and cell biology. In 2023, he joined the Institut Galien Paris-Saclay (CNRS), at the University of Paris-Saclay, as an associate professor of Biotechnology and Bioanalysis. His current research activities focus on the development of new microfluidic and microscale approaches for the isolation, detection and characterization of Extracellular Vesicles (EVs). He is particularly interested in exploring how the physicochemical properties of the EVs surface impact their functionalities regarding their application as biotherapeutics and nanovectors of therapeutic agents.

Alexander K. Buell was born in Stuttgart, germany. He studied general and physical chemistry at the University of Tübingen and at Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris. He obtained a PhD in Biophysics in the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge, UK under the supervision of Prof. Sir Mark Welland and Prof. Sir Christopher Dobson in 2011. He then held independent research fellowships while working in the Chemistry department of the University of Cambridge in the group of Prof. Tuomas Knowles. In 2015, he moved to the University of Düsseldorf in Germany and took up an assistant professorship. In 2019, Alexander accepted a position as Full Professor of Protein Biophysics at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU. Alexander is the recipient of the 2023 EliteForsk prize of the Danish Ministry of Research and Education and in 2023 he also obtained an ERC consolidator grant.

Joseph Chamieh, IBMM, Université de Montpellier

Joseph Chamieh (MC HC, 37 publications) earned his PhD in analytical chemistry back in 2009 from the University of Strasbourg in France, under the supervision of Dr. Agnès Hagège. His doctoral research centered on advancing silica monoliths for liquid chromatography. Following his PhD, he embarked on a two-year postdoctoral contract in Lyon, collaborating with Professor Claire Demesmay’s team. Here, he focused on the development of an immunoconcentration microsystem employing an organic monolith as a chromatographic support. In 2011, He made his way to Montpellier for a one-year postdoctoral stay in the group led by Professor Hervé Cottet. During this tenure, his work revolved around applying Taylor Dispersion Analysis to monitor the degradation of dendrigraft poly-L-Lysine. Subsequently, he was appointed as an Associate Professor in Professor Cottet’s group, where his research concentrates on the application of Taylor dispersion analysis and electrophoretic methods to investigate weak biomolecular interactions.
