The 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award has been awarded to Professor Milos V. Novotny, Indiana University, Indiana, USA. Sponsored by LCGC Europe and presented on 1 February 2012 at the HTC-12 Conference in Bruges, Belgium, the award recognizes outstanding achievements in hyphenated techniques in chromatography and distinguished service to the international chromatographic community.
Professor Novotny’s research interests include separation science and structural analysis of biological molecules, proteomics and glycobiology, and chemical communication in mammals. He was a member of the Viking 1975 science team and designed the miniaturized gas chromatographic column to search for organic molecules on the surface of Mars. More recently, his group has also been known for identification of disease biomarkers through glycomics and glycoproteomics. He has written over 500 journal articles, reviews, books and patents and has received around 40 awards, medals and other distinctions.
Dr Hernan Cortes, Chairman, Lifetime Achievement Award in Chromatography selection committee, commented, “It is an honour and a pleasure to recognize such a distinguished scientist as Professor Novotny with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Chromatography. His scientific contributions, originality, individual qualities and prolific discoveries are a model to be pursued by scientists worldwide.”
