Monday morning’s plenary lectures, which will be chaired by Gerard Hopfgartner of the University of Geneva (Geneva, Switzerland) will be held in the Grand Ballroom and will begin at 8:30 a.m.

The first lecture will be presented by Richard Smith of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL, Richland, Washington) and is titled “Advances in Ultra-Sensitive Multidimensional Separations with Mass Spectrometry.” Dr. Smith is the Battelle Fellow and Chief Scientist within the Biological Sciences Division at PNNL, and his research interests include advanced analytical methods and intrumentation with a focus on high-resolution separations and mass spectrometry. His recent efforts have been directed toward the development of high-throughput methods for systems biology research.

This morning session’s second lecture, “High-Speed and High-Efficiency Monolithic Silica Columns for HPLC,” will be given by Nobuo Tanaka of GL Sciences, Inc. (Tokyo, Japan) and the Kyoto Institute of Technology (Kyoto, Japan). Professor Tanaka’s research has centered on the development of highly selective stationary phases for HPLC, isotope separation and separation based on isotope chirality, and, more recently, silica-based monolithic columns.

The plenary lectures will be followed by a break during which a light breakfast and snacks will be available in the Marquis Ballroom.
