Else Skovgaard Holmfred


I am passionate about developing and applying advanced analytical chemistry in pharmaceutical science. I specialize in techniques such as Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), Mass Spectrometry (MS), High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), and Multivariate Data Analysis (MVA).

Current research

I was awarded the Novo Nordisk Foundation Visiting Scholar Stanford Bio-X Fellowship in 2023 and the Carlsberg Foundation Internationalisation Fellowship in 2022 to conduct my research at Stanford University, USA. My research combines the knowledge and experimental expertise from biogeochemistry with pharmaceutical science. I aim to establish a new pharmaceutical methodology using isotopic and trace elemental analysis to identify non-visual drug counterfeits.
