Dr. Jens Ducrée holds a Full Professorship of Microsystems in the School of Physical Sciences at Dublin City University (DCU). He is the founding director of [email protected] – Ireland’s first Fraunhofer Project Centre for Embedded Bioanalytical Systems, a joint initiative of Science Foundation Ireland and Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The main part of his research is directed towards novel microfluidic systems and associated actuation, detection, fabrication and instrumentation technologies for the integration, automation, miniaturization, and parallelization of bioanalytical. Typical applications of these next-generation “Lab-on-a-Chip” platforms are sample-to-answer systems for biomedical point-of-care and global diagnostics, liquid handling automation for the life sciences, process analytical techniques and cell line development for biopharma as well as monitoring the environment, infrastructure, industrial processes and agrifood.

Point of Care Coordinator ,
Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust, UK


Nicola is the POCT coordinator at the Royal United Hospitals Bath Foundation Trust and have been for just over 2 years now. Before this she was a senior biomedical scientist in biochemistry in the manual section again for around 2 years and a specialist BMS since 2003. Her most recent education was the certificate in expert practice in POCT awarded by the IBMS in 2021.

she have always had a great passion for POCT and I enjoy my job despite the many challenges. She believes that POCT is the ultimate integration of the laboratory and patients and never so much in the limelight as it has been during these COVID times.
