Dwight Stoll, an associate professor of chemistry at Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, Minnesota, was honored recently with two awards: the 2016 Gustavus Faculty Scholarly Achievement Award, presented at the college’s annual Honor’s Day Convocation in May, and the 2016 Palmer Award, presented at the Minnesota Chromatography Forum (MCF) Spring Symposium, also in May.

First awarded in 1986, the Faculty Scholarly Achievement Award was reestablished in 1986 and is now announced during the annual Honors Day Convocation. Award recipients are nominated by fellow faculty members based on professional accomplishments regarding research activities in private, public, or corporate settings; publications; presentations at scholarly meetings or conferences; and exhibits or performances.

Stoll said that receiving the award was a tremendous honor and shared credit. “Since I arrived at Gustavus eight years ago, I have been blessed with wonderfully supportive faculty colleagues both in chemistry and across the college, which have enabled the success we have enjoyed in my laboratory,” he said.

Since joining Gustavus in 2008, Stoll has published 25 peer-reviewed articles and has presented at numerous national and international conferences, including the Pittsburgh Conference, the HPLC conferences, and Analytica. In recent years, he has been recognized with the John B. Phillips Award, LCGC’s Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award, the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, and the American Chemical Society’s Young Investigator in Separations Science Award.

Stoll has served at Gustavus Adolphus College as chair of the Academic Technology Committee and as co-chair of the chemistry department. He is a member of the editorial boards of LCGC Magazine and Chromatographia. 

In addition to winning the award from Gustavus, Stoll also recently won the Palmer Award, which recognizes and encourages the art and science of chromatography, in particular, as it is related to the membership of the MCF. It is given to individuals whose professional and scientific accomplishments have fostered progress in chromatography.

Stoll holds bachelor’s degrees in plant biology and biochemistry from Minnesota State University, in Mankato, Minnesota, and a doctorate in analytical chemistry from the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
