The Chromatography Society is holding a four-day educational event in the Lake District from 14–17 October at the Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere. Aimed at post-graduate students and novice chromatographers, the event will focus on the fundamentals of liquid chromatography and its practical application in industry and academia.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming delegates to the Lake District for this event, which will comprise approximately 20 hours of lectures, together with walking activities and a number of evening events,” said Dr Paul Ferguson, President of The Chromatographic Society.

Expert chromatographers from across industry and academia will be delivering a number of lectures at the event including Professor Mel Euerby from Shimadzu, Tony Taylor from Crawford Scientific, Professor Tony Edge from Agilent, Dr John Lough from the University of Sunderland, and Dr Paul Ferguson from AstraZeneca.

“The lecture programme itself will be ‘fixed’ content, but there is considerable scope to include additional topics as requested by attendees in the initial session and informal discussion during walks. We look forward to a successful and productive weekend,” continued Ferguson.

A range of funding is being provided for the event with chromatography companies providing full funding for a limited number of UK-based post-graduate researchers. Furthermore, The Chromatography Society is also providing bursaries and industrial bursaries for chromatographers working in small and medium sized companies.

“We welcome further interest from companies wishing to sponsor post-graduate students (MSc and doctoral) to attend this event,” added Ferguson. “This is an excellent opportunity to help develop the chromatographers of the future.”
