Pittcon Theater interview with Lifetime Achievement award winner James W. Jorgenson.

March 9, 2011

Visit the LCGC & Spectroscopy 2011 Pittcon Theater (Booth #3217) on Wednesday, March 16 at 10:30 am for an interview with Lifetime Achievement award winner James W. Jorgenson.

LCGC, the industry's leading and most-recognized resource for chromatographers, is proud to announce the presentation of the 4th Annual Lifetime Achievement in Chromatography Award. The winner will be interviewed live at the LCGC & Spectroscopy 2011 Pittcon Theater, in Booth #3217.

The Lifetime Achievement award honors a seasoned professional for a lifetime of contributions to the advancement of chromatographic techniques and applications.

The winner of the LCGC 2011 Lifetime Achievement award is James W. Jorgenson, PhD. Dr. Jorgenson is the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of North Carolina. Dr. Jorgenson has received numerous awards and recognitions, holds six patents, has authored or coauthored more than 100 journal articles, and has served on the editorial boards of seven different journals. His research concerns harnessing the power of techniques such as capillary electrophoresis (CE), capillary liquid chromatography (LC) and mass spectroscopy (MS) to solve problems in complex mixture analysis. He is currently pursuing techniques of great peak capacity, such as combined liquid chromatography–capillary electrophoresis (LC–CE), as well as techniques with extreme resolving power, such as flow counterbalanced capillary electrophoresis (FCCE). His work on the use of ultra-high pressures in liquid chromatography, first published in 1999, is widely regarded as critical to the success of what is now known as UHPLC.

LCGC’s Editor-in-Chief Laura Bush will conduct an interview with Dr. Jorgenson on Wednesday, March 16 at 10:30 am, in the LCGC & Spectroscopy Pittcon Theater, in booth #3217 at Pittcon. A video of the interview will be available on the LCGC website the week following the conference.
