PerkinElmer (Waltham, Massachusetts) announced the "Ettre Award" to honor a young scientist in the field of gas chromatography. The award is named after Leslie S. Ettre, a renowned professor in the chromatography field who was a key scientist at PerkinElmer for 32 years before retiring. He has published more than 400 articles and papers, edited and written more than 40 books, and still serves on a number of editorial boards.

Gas chromatographers 35 years of age or younger who present papers at the International Symposia on Capillary Chromatography are eligible to win the Ettre Award. Entrants will be judged by a committee of peers, with the award going to the candidate that presents the most original and interesting research in capillary gas chromatography with a focus on environmental and food safety.

The inaugural award will be presented at the closing ceremony of the 32nd Symposium on May 30th in Riva del Garda, Italy.
