At 10:30 a.m. today James W. Jorgenson, William Rand Kenan Jr, Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of North Carolina and winner of the LCGC Lifetime Achievement Award will be interviewed by Laura Bush, editorial director of LCGC North America and Spectroscopy, on his illustrious career in chromatography.

Jorgenson is renowned in the separation science community for significantly advancing separation techniques in bioanalysis. As a graduate student at the University of North Carolina under the tutelage of Professor Milos Novotny he developed capillary electrophoresis, which is now widely used to analyze the chemical composition of a wide range of biological cells and tissues.

Jorgenson is currently working on combined liquid chromatography–capillary electrophoresis (LC–CE) techniques and flow counterbalanced capillary electrophoresis (FCCE). His pioneering work on the use of ultra-high pressures in liquid chromatography in 1999 is regarded as being pivotal to the development of UHPLC.

The final furlong of Pittcon Theater will consist of a series of demonstrations of CHROMacademy — an innovative e-learning suite from LCGC and Crawford Scientific that helps to improve your chromatography method development skills and practical and theoretical knowledge through a series of interactive tutorials and webcasts. There is also a range of support options to track staff development.

The program will include "Tools for Practical Professional Development" (11:00 a.m.); "Future GC Technologies by John Hinshaw from Serveron Corp" (11:30 a.m.); "Live HPLC Troubleshooting," which will showcase the new Interactive Troubleshooter for HPLC (12:15 p.m.); "Whatever happened to the 'Go to Guy'?" (1:00 p.m.); "Metabolomic Profiling" by Professor John Halket from Kings College London" (1:30 p.m.); and will close at 2:15 p.m. with another Live HPLC Troubleshooting session.

You are cordially invited to attend these state-of-the-art sessions at Booth #3217.

All attendees will have a chance to win an iPad2 (the winner must be present at the time of the draw).
