William Farrell, senior principal scientist at Pfizer Inc. (New York, New York) is the winner of the first annual Averica Award. The award will be presented by Jeff Kiplinger, president of Averica (Worcester, Massachusetts), at the SFC 2013 conference in Boston, Massachusetts on July 12. The award is to be bestowed annually “for distinguished contribution in preparative supercritical fluid chromatography.”

In choosing Farrell, the award committee agreed with the statement in Farrell’s nomination that “Bill and his team have had substantial impact on design of preparative SFC systems, have had a huge and influential presence at meetings, and have probably done more (or at least shared more) with respect to stationary phase development than any other research group.”

Farrell will be honored at the conference for his ongoing contribution and leadership in the field of preparative packed-column supercritical fluid chromatography. Following acceptance of the award at the conference, Farrell will present some of his current research.

On July 17, 2013 at 11 a.m. EDT, Farrell will speak during a live webinar that explores the use of SFC as a first-choice separation technique. The presentation also will demonstrate the application of SFC to the separation of a diverse range of chemical compounds.
