Dr. Sweedler currently holds the James R. Eiszner Family Endowed Chair in Chemistry, is a Center for Advanced Study Professor of Chemistry, as well as the Director of the School of Chemical Sciences; he is also affiliated with the Institute of Genomic Biology and the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology. The research emphasis of his group is on analytical neurochemistry. This includes the development of analytical methods for assaying complex microenvironments: capillary electrophoresis separation methods, laser-based detection methods, MALDI sampling techniques, nanoliter volume NMR and micro/nanofluidic sampling. The second group theme is studying the distribution and dynamic release of neuropeptides and classical transmitters in a cell-specific manner, elucidating novel neurochemical pathways, and investigating the roles of neurotransmitter cotransmission. He is currently Editor in Chief of Analytical Chemistry (see announcement in C&EN News) and serves on the Chemical Science Advisory Board.
