Mark Meyerhoff received Ph.D. from SUNY-Buffalo in 1979 in the field of analytical chemistry, and has been a faculty member in the Chemistry Department since September, 1979. He has mentored > 60 Ph.D. students and > 35 post-doctoral fellows.
Current research efforts in our laboratory are focused on: 1) the design and study of novel electrochemical and optical chemical sensors based on thin polymeric films doped with selective host compounds (especially metal-ligand complexes); 2) the synthesis, characterization and biomedical applications of polymeric materials that release/generate nitric oxide (NO); and 3) the development and applications of novel single-use and reversible polycation and polyanion sensors to detect heparin, protamine and a variety of other polyionic species.
