Talk Title: Analyte Complexation and Chiral Separations in Capillary Electrophoresis

Prof. Dr. Gerhard K. E. Scriba is a full professor at the Department of Medicinal/Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany. He studied Pharmacy at the University of Bonn and received his Ph.D. in 1984 from the University of Münster. Between 1986 and 1988 he worked as a post-doctoral research assocate at the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry of the University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas, USA before returning to the University of Münster where he finished his habilitation in 1995. Since 1999 he holds his current position at the University of Jena where he served as head of the School of Pharmacy from 2005 to 2013 and as Dean of Study Affairs of the Faculty of Biological Sciences from 2010 to 2013. He received the Rottendorf-Prize for Pharmaceutical Sciences in 1995 and the Johann-Wolfgang-Döbereiner-Prize of the German Pharmaceutical Association in 1997.

Prof. Scriba has published over 195 research and review papers and 25 book chapters. He is editor of the book Chiral Separations (2nd and 3rd edition) and co-editor of the journal Chromatographia. Furthermore, he is and a member of the editorial boards of the journals Electrophoresis, Journal of Separation Science and Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis and regularly serves as guest editor of the paper symposia “Pharmaceutical Analysis” of Electrophoresis. Prof. Scriba is the chairperson of the working group Pharmaceutical Chemistry of the German Pharmacopoeia, a member of the scientific commission of the German Drug Codex (DAC), am member of WHO Expert Advisory Panel on The International Pharmacopoeia and an advisor for the WHO Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations. Between 2007 and 2016 he served as a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM).

The research focuses on the analysis of drugs and peptides including stereoisomer analysis by capillary electrophoresis and HPLC as well as mechanistic studies on the interaction between selectors and solutes. A further research topic covers capillary electrophoresis-based enzyme assays.
