Session 580, 2:00 pm
The 2013 Charles N. Reilley award will be given to Andrew G. Ewing, of the University of Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, this afternoon presented by the Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (SEAC).
Ewing’s group has pioneered small-volume chemical measurements at single cells, electrochemical detection for capillary electrophoresis, novel approaches for electrochemical imaging of single cells, and new electrochemical strategies to separate individual nanometer vesicles from cells and quantify their contents. He is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
The Charles N. Reilley Award is given in memory of one of the most distigushed analytical chemists of the 20th century. Reilley's interests were both fundamental and broad; he made seminal contributions not only to electroanalysis, but also optical spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), chromatography, data analysis, instrumentation, and surface analysis. The signature of his research was to decline empiricism, seeking a basic understanding of measurements and detection schemes. Reilley recognized that measuring things is at the heart of modern chemistry.
