LCGC Europe are now accepting nominations for the 2022 HTC Innovation Award through to 30 June 2021.

“It is such a privilege to showcase the work of the brightest scientists around the globe who are making pioneering contributions to the field of separation sciences,” said Michael Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences, parent company of LCGC Europe. “We are delighted to honour and recognize the achievements of a talented scientist who is continuing to propel the specialty forward, making great strides in their career and research.”

The 2022 HTC Innovation Award winner will be selected by the HTC-17 Scientific Committee and the HTC-17 Industry Board, based on the following criteria:

• The winner has made a pioneering contribution to the field of separation sciences by introducing new methodologies, new instrumentation, or new techniques in the field, with a strong focus on applicability.

• Applications are open to scientists who have under 15 years of experience after completing their PhD.

• Applications from separation scientists worldwide are welcomed. LCGC Europe readers can nominate themselves or others.

Previous winners have included: Ryan Kelly of Brigham Young University, Utah, USA, who was nominated and awarded the honour based on his outstanding contributions to the field of microcolumn separations involving hyphenation, and Carolin Huhn of Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany, who received the inaugural award for her work on a modular instrumental approach where the modular building blocks can be flexibly combined in relation to particular analytical tasks to implement a broad range of different elements of chemical analysis.

The 2022 HTC Innovation Award recipient will be presented with a plaque honouring their accomplishment at the HTC-17 conference, which will be held in Ghent, Belgium, at Conference Center Het Pand, the culture and congress center of Ghent University, from the 26–28 January 2022.
