Welcome to the Bowser Group!
Research in the Bowser group takes a bioanalytical approach to technology development. We develop methods and instrumentation to measure biological systems at scales and timeframes not accessible by existing techniques. These versatile technologies can be applied to answer a wide range of chemical and biological questions, from those with specific biomedical implications in neurology, immunology, cardiology, and endocrinology, to those with broader insight on the origins and organization of life.
Current areas of focus combine microfluidics, electrophoresis, nucleic acid assays, and cell culture. Check out the Research Page for an overview of our current projects!
Cecilia Wins MSB Presentation Award
Cecilia traveled to Florida this week to present her research at the 39th International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB), where she was one of four graduate students selected to receive the Award for Excellence in Oral Presentation for her presentation, “Surface adsorption and micro free-flow electrophoresis affinity assay development in cyclic olefin copolymer devices.” Congratulations, Cecilia!
Matt’s Thesis Defense!
Congratulations to our newest graduate, Dr. Matt LeMon! Matt successfully defended his thesis entitled, Enhancing Micro Free Flow Electrophoresis: Detection, Application, and Fabrication!
Matt gave a great presentation, sharing his research on all things micro free flow! We'll all miss having you in the Bowser Group, Matt!
Jeannette Brown Flash Talk
Cecilia presented her talk, “Development of a micro free flow electrophoresis assay for the continuous quantification of tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα)” as a part of the the third annual Jeannette Brown Lectureship, co-sponsored by Merck & Co., Inc.
