Mark E. Meyerhoff - 2006 Reilley Award


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. He was promoted to associate professor in 1985, and to full professor in 1990.

Meyerhoff's primary research interests are in the field of analytical chemistry, particularly the development of new ion-, gas-, and bio-selective electrochemical sensors suitable for direct measurements of clinically important analytes in physiological samples. Currently, he also has active research programs in the areas of novel non-separation electrochemical immunoassay methods, immobilized metalloporphyrin stationary phases for liquid chromatography, and the development and characterization of novel nitric oxide (NO) releasing polymeric materials for biomedical applications. He and his collaborators have authored more than 250 original research papers on these various topics over the past 26 years.

Professor Meyerhoff received the University of Michigan's Faculty Recognition Award in 1990, was elected as a Fellow by the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry in 2002, and received the ACS-Division of Analytical Chemistry Award in Electrochemistry in 2003. He currently serves on the editorial/advisory boards of Analytical Chemistry, Clinical Chemistry, Biosensors & Bioelectronics, Electroanalysis, Analytica Chimica Acta, and Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology. He is also active as a consultant and/or is on the Scientific Advisory Boards of several biomedical companies.
