Gerard Rozing has been announced as the winner of the second annual Uwe D. Neue Award in Separation Science. The award was created by Waters Corporation (Massachusetts, USA) to recognize the work of distinguished industrial scientists, in honour of Dr Uwe D. Neue, late scientist and Waters Corporate Fellow. Rozing will receive the award at the upcoming 41st International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC2014) held on 11–15 May in New Orleans, USA.

Rozing is widely known and recognized as an outstanding researcher for his work that bridges fundamental science with technical solutions in a commercial environment. He worked in industry for over 30 years, before retiring in 2012 to become a consultant for Agilent Technologies and other organizations. He has authored more than 57 publications and holds six US patents. Gerard also recently devised and presented a successful series of educational webinars on Fundamentals, Optimization and Practical Aspects of UHPLC for LCGC.

In a statement on his personal webpage, Rozing stated: “It is always a great honour to become recognized through an award. But I feel deeply honoured by this award since it is named after Dr Uwe Neue, a contemporary peer with whom I shared a common career pathway in many aspects. I met Uwe the first time some 25 years ago during one of the HPLC symposium series and many times since then. Our encounters were always easy, since we had common roots in Germany. I have been impressed with his ability to maintain his scientific integrity in a for-profit-organization environment where unlike in academia, the science has to compromise with engineering, marketing, finance, sales, and manufacturing functions.”
