is pleased to announce the additions of Emily Hilder and Davy Guillarme to its editorial advisory board.

Hilder is a professor in the School of Chemistry at the University of Tasmania (Australia), where she received her PhD in analytical chemistry in 2001. She was the winner of LCGC’s Emerging Leader Award in Chromatography award in 2012.

She is an expert in the synthesis and design of porous polymer monoliths, and new commercial monolithic separation media based on her research have been commercialized. She has two patent applications, the result of her recent work in the development of new media for dried blood spot analysis.

Hilder also has made significant contributions in ion analysis, in particular in the combination of chromatographic and electrophoretic separation mechanisms to achieve unique selectivity for ionic analytes in capillary electrochromatography (CEC). She was the first to demonstrate the mixed-mode separation of inorganic anions by CEC, including introduction of a mathematical model to describe the separation mechanism.

She was instrumental in the development of an analytical method that was identified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as one of the only methods suitable for screening heparin for potentially lethal impurities.

From 2004 to 2007, Hilder was an ARC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Tasmania. She is currently an ARC Future Fellow (2009-2013). These research fellowships recognize exceptional early-and mid-career researchers, respectively.

Hilder has more than 84 publications to her credit and has given more than 126 presentations at national and international scientific meetings.

Guillarme is a senior lecturer at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Geneva (Switzerland), and at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). He earned his PhD in analytical chemistry from the University of Lyon (France) in 2004. He is the winner of the 2013 LCGC Emerging Leader Award in Chromatography award.

Guillarme is a senior lecturer at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Geneva (Switzerland), and at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). He earned his PhD in analytical chemistry from the University of Lyon (France) in 2004. He is the winner of the 2013 LCGC Emerging Leader Award in Chromatography award.

Guillarme has made significant contributions in fast and high-resolution chromatography, comparing the different available approaches, using various types of samples. He has been among the first to work and publish extensively on the possibilities offered by UHPLC, and has created a Excel calculator, available free on the University of Geneva website, that can be used to determine the new isocratic and gradient conditions to be used when transferring a method between HPLC and UHPLC.

A skilled public speaker, Guillarme has made 70 oral presentations at national and international scientific meetings. Guillarme has 77 peer reviewed scientific publications to his credit, including a series of papers that discuss the possibilities of several modern widepore reversed-phase liquid chromatography phases for the analysis of large biomolecules. His work has received more than 350 citations since 2012; he has reviewed more than 120 papers for more than 10 journals and is an active reviewer for 12 journals.

Guillarme currently leads a research group at the University of Geneva. His interests in research areas include new trends in separative techniques (HPLC, SFC) and coupling with mass spectrometry, HILIC, analysis of pharmaceutical compounds, characterization of intact biomolecules, including therapeutic peptides, proteins, and monoclonal antibodies.
