Livia S. Eberlin received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Campinas in São Paulo, Brazil, and her PhD in Analytical Chemistry from at Purdue University. She then moved to Stanford University where she pursued her postdoctoral research in Chemistry and Medicine. In 2016, she started her independent career as an Assistant Professor in the Chemistry Department at the University of Texas at Austin. Prof. Eberlin is passionate about research at the interface of chemistry and medicine. Her research group is focused on developing innovative mass spectrometry technologies to address critical problems in health-related research. 


In this talk, Dr. Eberlin will describe her lab's effort in developing the MasSpec Pen technology for cancer diagnosis and surgical margin evaluation. Focus will be given to their efforts designing the technology, including their exciting recent research testing the device in human surgeries.
