The 2017 Guiochon Fellowship will be awarded to Dwight Stoll, an Associate Professor and Co-Chair of Chemistry at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota.

Stoll received his B.S. degrees in plant biology and biochemistry in 1999 and 2001 from Minnesota State University, Mankato, USA. He gained practical industrial experience by working at ZirChrom Separations before he enrolled in the graduate program in chemistry at the University of Minnesota in 2001. He earned his Ph.D. in Peter Carr’s group in 2007 using the principles of high temperature and ultrafast gradient elution liquid chromatography to improve the overall speed of two-dimensional separations.

Stoll has authored or coauthored 48 peer‑reviewed publications in separation science and more than 90 conference presentations. His primary research focus is on the development of two‑dimensional liquid chromatography (2D-LC) for both targeted and untargeted analyses. Within this area he has made contributions on the topics of stationary‑phase characterization, new 2D-LC methodologies and instrumentation, and fundamental aspects including reequilibration in gradient elution reversed-phase LC and analyte focusing. He is the 2009 recipient of the John B. Phillips Award for contributions to multidimensional gas chromatography, the 2011 recipient of LCGC’s Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award, and the 2015 recipient of the American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science. He also sits on the editorial advisory board of LCGC North America and is the new editor of “LC Troubleshooting”.

The Georges Guiochon Faculty Fellowship honors the memory of Georges Guiochon and recognizes his major contributions to HPLC, including his interest in the careers of young people in separations science. The Fellow, selected annually, receives a $15,000 research grant and a commemorative plaque. Eligibility for the award extends to all full-time faculty members at U.S. academic or government institutions who are within 10 years of their first independent research appointments.
