Session 250, 8:00 am
Dr. Irving W. Wainer of the National Institutes of Health will receive the 2013 Dal Nogare award this morning presented by the Chromatography Forum of the Delaware Valley. The Dal Nogare awardee is chosen on the basis of his or her contributions to the fundamental understanding of the chromatographic process.
Dr. Wainer has a wide range of scientific accomplishments, specifically, in the area of effect of disease state on drug metabolism. Wainer and his group identified a number of discordances between metabolic genotype and expressed phenotype in patients with advanced cancer and aids. In the area of immobilized receptors, transporters, and enzymes, Wainer developed liquid chromatographic stationary phases containing immobilized receptors, enzymes, and transporters as an on-line, flow system for use in drug discovery and in the characterization of lead drug candidates. A wide variety of new and unique bioanalytical methods for the quantification of drugs in biological matrices were developed in the Wainer group. These methods have been applied to pharmokinetic and clinical studies.
