Martin Medal, presented by the Chromatographic Society of the UK

In 1978 Professor A.J.P Martin gave permission for his name to be associated with the 'Martin Medal'. This is awarded to scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of separation science.

About A.J.P. Martin

Archer John Porter Martin, (1 March 1910 – 28 July 2002) was an English chemist who shared the 1952 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the invention of partition chromatography with Richard Synge.

Martin was educated at Bedford School and the University of Cambridge. Working first in the Physical Chemistry Laboratory, he moved to the Dunn Nutritional Laboratory, and in 1938 moved to Wool Industries Research Institution in Leeds. He was head of the Biochemistry Division of Boots Pure Drug Company from 1946 to 1948, when he joined the Medical Research Council. There, he was appointed Head of the Physical Chemistry Division of the National Institute for Medical Research in 1952 and was Chemical Consultant from 1956 to 1959.

He specialized in Biochemistry, in some aspects of Vitamins E and B2, and in techniques that laid the foundation for chromatography. He developed partition chromatography whilst working on the separation of amino acids, and later developed gas-liquid chromatography.

2017 Georges Guiochon Faculty Fellowship

About the Fellowship

The purpose of the Fellowship is to honor the memory of Georges Guiochon and recognize his major contributions to HPLC, including his interest in fostering the careers of young people in separations science. The Fellow will be selected annually and will receive a $15,000 research grant and a commemorative plaque. The inaugural Fellow will be expected to present specially dedicated lectures at the HPLC 2017 symposium in Prague and at the HPLC 2018 symposium in Washington, for which travel support will be provided. The Fellowship is sponsored by HPLC, Inc.

We are pleased to announce that Dwight Stoll has been selected to receive 2017 Georges Guiochon Faculty Fellowship.

Eligibility Criteria

All full-time faculty members at U.S. academic or government institutions who are within 10 years of their first independent research appointments at the time of the award are eligible for consideration. The selection process will be based on overall excellence in research in fields aligned with liquid phase separation science.

About Georges Guiochon

Professor Georges Guiochon (1931-2014) was born in France. He graduated in 1953 with an MS degree in engineering at Ecole Polytechnique (Paris, France) and received a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Paris (France) in 1958. He was a Professor of Chemistry at Ecole Polytechnique (1958-1985) and at the University Pierre et Marie Curie of Paris (1968-1984), then at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. (1984-1987). He was appointed a Distinguished Professor at the University of Tennessee (Department of Chemistry) and a Senior Scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Division of Chemical Sciences) in 1987. Georges Guiochon was the undisputed master of the theory in almost all fields related to chromatography. He presented many rigorous treatments on retention and, especially, efficiency in liquid chromatography. He provided the theoretical foundation for the large-scale application of preparative chromatography, which is now one of the key technologies of the emerging biopharmaceutical industry. More recently, Georges Guiochon guided the re-emergence of supercritical-fluid chromatography in the fundamentally correct directions. No other scientist has demonstrated the breadth of knowledge, nor the unceasing motivation, that Georges Guiochon used to shape the field of chromatography to where it is today. His efforts garnered awards that included 2 from the ACS and the LCGC Lifetime Achievement Award.  He received honorary doctoral degrees from the Universities of Pardubice, Ramon Llull (Barcelona), Ferrara, and Science and Technology (Liaoning), and was inducted into the Spanish Academy of Science in 2011.  He published 5 books and about 1100 peer-reviewed papers while performing research with over a hundred graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

Csaba Horváth Young Scientist Award, presented by HPLC, Inc.

The purpose of the Award is to honor the memory of Csaba Horváth and recognize his contributions to HPLC, including his interest in fostering the careers of young people in separations science and engineering. The award includes an invitation to speak at the HPLC 2018 symposium in Washington, DC, USA, a grant to support travel to that meeting, and a trophy engraved with the winner’s name. The award is sponsored by HPLC, Inc.

Eligibility Criteria

All presenters of oral contributions (excepting past winners) who are less than 35 years of age at the time of their lecture are eligible for consideration. Candidates will be required to provide evidence of eligibility (e.g., passport, driver’s license.)

Selection Process

The Scientific Committee selects abstracts for inclusion in the oral program (Abstract deadline for oral presentations expired on January 23, 2017). An Award Jury judges the eligible presentations and chooses a winner. The winner will be announced at the closing ceremony.

About Csaba Horváth

Professor Csaba Horváth (1930-2004) was born in Hungary and graduated in chemical engineering from the Budapest Institute of Technology. After receiving his Ph.D. in physical chemistry at the J.W. Goethe University in Frankfurt under the direction of Prof. Halász, he immigrated to the United States in 1963 and started research at the Harvard Medical School. In the following year, Dr. Horváth moved to Yale where he designed and built the first high performance liquid chromatograph to demonstrate the feasibility and potential of HPLC in bioseparation sciences. He chaired the Department of Chemical Engineering at Yale from 1987 to 1993 and was named as Roberto C. Goizueta Professor of Chemical Engineering in 1998. Professor Horváth contributed close to 300 publications to the field of separation sciences and had nine patents. His main topics were all fundamental aspects of separations, including instrumentation, stationary phase designs, and mechanisms of separation processes, as well as their application mainly to biological and biomedical research, especially for the high-resolution separation of proteins and peptides.

Best Poster Award, awarded by the Symposium and sponsored by Agilent Technologies

Chairmen of Best Poster Award committee: Gerard Rozing and Jiří Urban

Submit your abstract before the deadline and chose option to be considered in the competition for poster awards sponsored by Agilent Technologies and co-sponsored by Springer Verlag.

Posters will be available during the whole symposium. All submitted posters will be evaluated based on scientific content as well as readability of the poster and presentation during poster session. Special attention will be paid to attendance of presenters at their posters during dedicated poster sessions.

Posters presented at HPLC 2017 will be reviewed by an international panel of scientists and there will be several rounds of evaluation and selection of the best posters presented at HPLC 2017 Prague.

Posters will be evaluated in terms of following criteria:

  • Novelty and originality of the work, creativity and potential for innovation;
  • Scope of work, technical quality of experimental design, and execution of experiments;
  • Readability of the presentation and author’s explanations.

Posters presenters who make it into the final round are asked to stay until the Best Poster Award ceremony during Closing Ceremony of the symposium since cash prizes will be awarded and presented at the Closing Ceremony. Additionally, Springer Verlag will provide book vouchers to finalists.

J. F. K. Huber Lecture Award presented by the Austrian Society of Analytical Chemistry (ASAC)

This Award was created in 2014 to honour scientists who have made major contributions to the advancement of HPLC in theory and practice.

Prof. Joseph Franz Karl Huber (1st January 1925 – 15th August 2000) who gives this Award the name, received his doctoral degree in 1960 about a physico-chemical topic under the supervision of Prof. Erica Cremer at the University Innsbruck. 1964 Joseph Huber moved to the Free University of Amsterdam.

In 1974 he moved back to Austria in taking the Chair of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Vienna where he became Emeritus in 1995. He is considered as one of the founding fathers of HPLC whereby his vision of the impact of small particles on the high efficiency of LC marks a corner stone of his research.

Based on nominations the Honouring Committee of the ASAC will select the awardee. The Award will be presented at international conferences related to Separation Sciences.
