Pittcon Announce Winners of 2012 Awards for Excellence in Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy

The Pittcon 2012 Program Committee is pleased to announce the recipients of 11 prestigious awards honoring scientists who have made outstanding contributions to analytical chemistry and applied spectroscopy. Each award will be presented during a symposium at Pittcon 2012, March 11-15, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.

This year's awards will recognize scientists using methodologies such as vibrational and infrared spectroscopy; ion, liquid, and gas chromatography; separation science; nanotechnology; bioanalytical chemistry; electrochemistry; microscopy, portable instruments; and mass spectrometry.

Alan G. Ward

We are very honored that our former (2010) Plenary Lecturer [Alan G. Marshall from Florida State University will receive the 2012 Pittsburgh Analytical Chemistry Award. This award acknowledges Marshall's contributions to the field of analytical chemistry through his continuing development of Fourier transform ICR mass spectrometry. His current research spans FT-ICR instrumentation development, fossil fuels and environmental analysis, and mapping the primary and higher-order structures of biological macromolecules and their complexes.

When asked to comment on his work, Dr. Marshall stated, "It has been wonderful to have helped enable the explosive growth and impact of accurate mass measurement for addressing previously intractable analytical problems, ranging from petroleomics (i.e., prediction of the properties and behavior of crude oil and its products from their detailed organic composition) to mapping of contact surfaces in protein complexes inaccessible by NMR or x-ray diffraction. I especially look forward to the role of mass spectrometry in elucidating epigenetics (chemical modification of the genome without change in the nucleotide sequence) as the next grand challenge for biochemistry."

Other awards and recipients are as follows:

  • Pittsburgh Spectroscopy Award, W.E. Moerner, Stanford University
  • Pittcon Heritage Award, honoring Genzo Shimadzu, Sr. (1839-1894) and Genzo Shimadzu, Jr. (1868-1951), Shimadzu, accepting the award will be Shijehiko Hattori, Shimadzu Chairman of the Board
  • Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award, Christy L. Haynes, University of Minnesota
  • ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science
  • Bomem-Michelson Award, Jared L. Anderson, University of Toledo
  • Dal Nogare Award, Purnendu K. Dasgupta, University of Texas
  • Charles N. Reilley Award, Debra Rolison, Naval Research Laboratory
  • Young Investigator Award, Lane Baker, Indiana University
  • Ralph N. Adams Award, Jonathan V. Sweedler, University of Illinois
  • Williams Wright Award, Richard Crocombe, Thermo Fisher Scientific
