Live at Pittcon 2023: Our Exclusive Video Interview with Jim Grinias


At Pittcon 2023, LCGC spoke with Jim Grinias of Rowan University. This segment previews one of three Pittcon interviews that were conducted at the conference.

Grinias spoke during the LCGC Award Symposium at Pittcon 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he delivered a talk titled “Progress Towards a Capillary-Scale Parallel 2D-LC System.”

Grinias’s research background focuses on the fundamental development of liquid chromatography (LC) columns in capillaries and microfluidic devices. The Grinias laboratory also conducts research in understanding the physical processes beyond bed structure that impact column performance, which include extracolumn effects and frictional heating. The group’s work also applies LC and mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation to solve analytical problems in neuroscience and molecular physiology.

LCGC sat down with Grinias to discuss the following topics:

  • The advantages of compact and portable LC instruments (00:17–01:18).
  • The challenges involved in transferring analytical-scale LC separations to compact systems using capillary LC (01:18–02:14).
  • How the curriculum for separation science education should be developed going forward, and whether we need to rethink it (02:14–03:43).

Our interview with Grinias was one of three conducted live at Pittcon 2023. To watch our other Pittcon interview series previews, click below:
