Professor Milton L. Lee of Brigham Young University in the USA was presented with the 2014 LCGC Europe Lifetime Achievement Award. Alasdair Matheson, editor-in-chief of LCGC Europe, presented the award to Lee to a packed HTC-13 conference in Bruges, Belgium, for his outstanding achievements in hyphenated chromatographic techniques and for distinguished service to the international separation science community. Lee joins previous award winners including James Jorgenson (2006), Robert Smits (2008), Pat Sandra (2010), and Milos Novotny (2012).

Lee told LCGC: "It was a great honour to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award in Bruges. It caused me to reflect on the many exciting times I have enjoyed over the years working with talented graduate students, postdocs, and colleagues. In fact, I feel additional enthusiasm now to see if I can still contribute more in the future to the field of separation science!"

Lee has mentored more than 71 graduate students and 26 postdoctoral researchers since joining Brigham Young University in 1976. He has been actively involved in the transfer of technology from the laboratory to industry, is listed as co-founder of three companies set-up to commercialize instrumentation, and is listed as co-author on 20 issued patents. His current research interests lie in the field of monolithic column technology for capillary liquid chromatography and instrumentation for field sampling and hand-portable gas chromatography–mass spectrometry.
