Senior Research Officer
National Institute for Nanotechnology
Abebaw Jemere is a senior research officer at the National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT), National Research Council Canada, Edmonton, Alberta. He obtained his Ph.D from the University of Alberta in 2003, specializing in Micro fabrication and miniaturization of analytical systems. Prior to NINT, he worked at CMC Microsystems (Kingston, Ontario) and Advanced Integrated Microsystems (Edmonton, Alberta) as staff scientist. His current research interest lies at the intersection of micro/nanotechnology and bio and environmental systems, particularly in the development of nanobiosensors and lab-on-a-chip systems for chemical, biochemical and biological analysis.
Dr. Jemere’s research primarily focuses on developing miniaturized analytical techniques for the separation, detection and identification of biomolecules. He conducts research in the areas of capillary electrophoresis, capillary electrochromatography, immunoassay, metabolomics, proteomics, mass spectrometric detection and lab-on-a-chip technology as well as developing novel biosensors.
