Uwe D. Neue Award in Separation Science: John Dolan

Today at 3:45 pm, John W. Dolan of LC Resources in McMinnville, Oregon, will be presented with the 2022 Uwe D. Neue Award in Separation Science. He will then give a talk titled, “In the Fullness of Time: The DryLab Story.” His talk will be the first presentation in the Monday afternoon parallel session 4C, “Theory–I,” in Ballroom C.

Dolan had a long and successful career focused on liquid chromatography. He worked with Lloyd Snyder on the development of the hydrophobic subtraction model and was a co-developer of the DryLab software for LC method development. He also spent more than 30 years traveling the globe giving short courses on HPLC, and for 34 years wrote the monthly “LC Troubleshooting” column in LCGC, through which he educated generations of chromatographers, ultimately writing 390 installments.

The Uwe D. Neue Award, sponsored by Waters Corporation, was created to recognize scientists who have made and continue to make significant contributions to the field of separation science, in honor of the legacy of the late scientist Dr. Uwe D. Neue, who was a Waters Corporate Fellow. The award honors a distinguished industrial scientist, preferably 15–20 years after receiving his or her doctoral degree, who has made a significant contribution to the field of separation science and continues to advance it. In addition, the awardee should be an industrial scientist, and one who was instrumental in the embodiment of technology in commercial products.
