Dr. Lieberman is interested in developing analytical methods for use in low-resource settings. Her group designs paper millifluidic devices to carry out operations that are normally done in a laboratory setting, and tests those devices in Kenya, Malawi, Bangladesh, and other developing countries. The work focuses on detection of falsified and substandard pharmaceuticals, and assessment of iodine nutrition interventions. We are currently developing a paper test card to assess the quality of injectable chemotherapy drugs. We would be interested in working with anyone with a field project who wants to answer analytical questions without access to analytical lab instrumentation.
