David S. Hage

Ph.D., Iowa State University

B.S., Univ. Wisc.-La Crosse

Postdoctoral, Mayo Clinic

David S. Hage is the Hewett University Professor of Chemistry at UNL.  His research interests involve the design and use of affinity-based separations in LC and miniaturized systems for clinical and pharmaceutical analysis.  He has served as the editor for the Handbook of Affinity Chromatography, 2nd edition.  He is an editor for the Journal of Chromatography B and is the lead author on a college textbook entitled Analytical Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis.
Sandya Rani BeeramGraduate Student

Sandya Rani Beeram

B.S., Kakatiya Univ.

M.S.,  Univ. Dayton

Sandya is a Ph.D. student in the Chemistry Department at UNL.  She is working on new methods for the immobilization of proteins such as alpha 1-acid glycoprotein and in study the binding of this protein with drugs in various disease states.  She is also working with new separation methods that combine affinity ligands with nanomaterials.
ElliottGraduate Student

Elliott Rodriguez

B.S., Barry Univ.

Elliott is a Ph.D. student in the Chemistry Department at UNL. His current work is focused on the development of new displacement assay formats for drugs and environmental agents by HPAC and affinity monolith columns. He is also creating new microchip-based affinity systems for use in chromatographic assays.
ChenhuaGraduate Student

Chenhua Zhang
