The Chemometrics&Process Analytical Technology Unit is part of GABAI (Industrial, Biochemical and Environmental Analysis Group). GABAI  is a  research group of CEQUP/REQUIMTE and is located at the Laboratory of Applied Chemistry, Department of Chemical Sciences, Faculty of PharmacyUniversity of Porto.

The Chemometrics&PAT Unit is focused on research on processes and product quality diagnosis, monitoring and control. It is focused on pure and applied chemometrics and vibrational spectroscopy tools, essentially near-infrared (NIR) and mid-infrared (MIR) spectroscopy. The Unit has been working on such diverse areas such as biotechnology processes (biopolymers production and wastewater treatment processes), pharmaceutical processes control and solid dosage forms, bacteria high-throughput diagnosis for clinical purposes, foods chemical analysis and quality control and art&conservation studies of Portuguese medieval manuscripts.

The Chemometrics&PAT Unit is currently coordinated by João Almeida Lopes.

    My name is John Y. Hena, Jr. I am a chemist with an MSc. in Applied Analytical Chemistry. I would like to pursue a PhD in Chemometrics Modeling/PAT. How can I get a scholarship since I can’t afford cost for PhD studies?
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    I am Nageshwar Patel, master student of food technology in K U Leuven. I have done my thesis using NIRS (Near Infrared spectroscopy) and Chemometrics. I would like to engage in a research program (PhD) related to NIRS. Hence, I would like to ask you that is there any PhD positions available? Please reply me on my email, nageshwarpatel@gmail.com.
