March 6– Atlanta, Georgia – This afternoon, the winners of the LCGC Awards will be honored in an oral symposium at Pittcon. Pat Sandra of the Research Institute for Chromatography will receive the 2017 LCGC Lifetime Achievement Award at 1:30, and Deirdre Cabooter of the University of Leuven will receive the 2017 LCGC Emerging Leader Award at 3:40 pm, just after the break. The symposium will be held in room W183a.

Following the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award, Sandra will give a talk on the evolution of peak capacity in liquid chromatography. Jim Jorgenson of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will then discuss the effect of column packing conditions on column morphology and efficiency in capillary LC with sub-2-µm particles. Rounding out the first part of the program, Milos Novotny of Indiana University will give a presentation on high-resolution capillary LC–MS/MS in structural elucidation and measurements in biologically important glycans.

After receiving the Emerging Leader Award, Cabooter will discuss how to get the best of both selectivity and efficiency in LC. Gert Desmet of Vrije Universiteit Brussel will then muse about the ideal chromatography system of the future.
