Now in its fourth year, the LCGC Awards have quickly grown into one of the premier honors for both emerging and veteran practitioners of chromatography. In
this relatively short timeframe, the awards have built a prestigious list of awardees from a variety of different specialty
areas, and this year in particular, generated a great deal of interest from all across the field of chromatography.

The prestige associated with these awards became well established very early on. Previous Lifetime Achievement Awards have
gone to such illustrious figures as Walt Jennings, formerly of J&W Scientific and the University of California at Davis (2008),
Harold McNair of Virginia Tech (2009), and Georges Guiochon of the University of Tennessee (2010), and Emerging Leader Awards
have been given to well known experts Gert Desmet of the Free University of Brussels (2008), Kevin Schug of the University
of Texas, Arlington (2009), and Jared Anderson of the University of Toledo (2010).
