He was co-chairman of International Meeting on Chemical Sensors 2016, Jeju, Korea. He published 305 peer-reviewed papers and holds 40 domestic and international patents.

Mark E. Meyerhoff – Biographical Sketch

Mark E. Meyerhoff is currently Philip J. Elving Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.  He received his Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1979, working with Professor Garry A. Rechnitz.  Following a short post-doctoral stint at the University of Delaware, he joined the faculty at Michigan as an Assistant Professor in the Fall of 1979.  Professor Meyerhoff’s primary research interests are in the field of analytical chemistry, particularly the development of new ion-, polyion-, gas-, and bio-selective electrochemical/optical sensors suitable for direct measurements of clinically important analytes in physiological samples.  He also has a very active research program in the area of biomaterials, especially the development and characterization of novel nitric oxide (NO) releasing/generating polymeric materials.  He and his collaborators have authored more than 380 original research papers on these and other topics over the past 40 years since beginning his independent academic career at Michigan.  Professor Meyerhoff has received the ACS-Division of Analytical Chemistry Award in Electrochemistry in 2003, the Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry’s Reilley Award in 2006, The University of Michigan’ Outstanding Graduate Mentoring Award in 2006, the University of Michigan’s Distinguished Faculty Achievement Award in 2011, and the Ralph Adams Award in Bioanalytical Chemistry from the Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry in 2014.
