2017 – EAS is MOVING!

2017 theme

EAS is moving to Princeton. President-Elect Justin Pennington announced that EAS 2017 will be held at the Crowne Plaza Princeton – Conference Center in Plainsboro, NJ. This facility is well suited to the size of the symposium and expo and will allow all activities to take place under one roof. We are sad to leave the venues in Somerset that have hosted EAS since the 90′s but we are excited to open a new chapter in Princeton. SAVE these DATES:

Call for Posters Opens March 1st

2017 New York Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy Gold Medal Award:

Professor Van Duyne discovered surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), invented nanosphere lithography (NSL), and developed ultrasensitive nanosensors based on localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) spectroscopy. His research interests include SERS, LSPR spectroscopy, plasmonics, nanoscale biosensors, atomic layer deposition (ALD), ultra-high vacuum tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (UHV-TERS), electrochemical tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (EC-TERS) and surface-enhanced femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy (SE-FSRS). He has been elected a Fellow/Member of the National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), American

2017 EAS Young Investigator Award

Dwight Stoll did his undergraduate work at Minnesota State University, Mankato, receiving B.S. degrees in plant biology and biochemistry in 1999 and 2001.  Upon graduation in 1999 he took a job in industry as a research technician with ZirChrom Separations, Inc.  At ZirChrom he quickly learned about the liquid chromatography market, and in fact became quite interested in the role of separation science in the development of new analytical methodologies for use in other disciplines such as biology.  In 2000

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Chemometrics

Barry K. Lavine is a Professor of Chemistry at Oklahoma State University where he both teaches and performs research in the area of analytical chemistry.  Lavine’s research interests encompass many aspects of chemometrics including pattern recognition, multivariate curve resolution, and multivariate calibration using genetic algorithms and other evolutionary techniques. Lavine graduated with his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Pennsylvania State University in 1986.  He has published approximately 100 research papers, 20 book chapters, 16 review articles and has edited 3

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Field of Analytical Chemistry

The primary focus of Professor Pawliszyn’s research program is the design of highly automated and integrated instrumentation for the isolation of analytes from complex matrices and the subsequent separation, identification and determination of these species.  The primary separation tools used by his group are Gas Chromatography, Liquid Chromatography and Capillary Electrophoresis coupled to variety of detections systems, including range of mass spectrometry techniques. Currently his research is focusing on elimination of organic solvents from the sample preparation step to facilitate

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Mass Spectrometry

Dr. Scott A. McLuckey earned his B.S. in chemistry from Westminster College in 1978 and his Ph.D. degree in 1982 from Purdue University in Analytical Chemistry.  Directly following graduation from Purdue, he spent one year as a visiting scientist at the FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics in Amsterdam.  In late 1983, he joined the Analytical Chemistry Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow.   In January, 1990 he was named Head of the Analytical

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Separation Science

Christopher J. Welch is Science Lead for Analytical Chemistry within the Process Research & Development Department at Merck & Co., Inc. in Rahway, NJ.  Chris leads the New Technologies Review and Licensing Committee (NT-RLC), the organization that oversees identification, acquisition and evaluation of new technologies of potential value to Merck Research Laboratories.  Chris also leads the MRL Postdoctoral Research Fellows Program.  He received his BS degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1982 and a

2017 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in NMR

Dr. Bernhard Blümich is professor of Macromolecular Chemistry at RWTH Aachen University, Germany since 1993. He holds a Master of Science degree (1976) in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., a Diploma in Physics (1977) and a PhD in Physical Chemistry (1981) from Technische Universität Berlin in Germany. He was a member of staff at the Department of Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Bayreuth (1983), Germany, and then at the Max Planck-Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz

A tribute to Herk Felder (1951-2016)

The EAS family has lost one of their own: Hercules Felder passed away this month, too soon; he was 64. We’ve all been stunned by this news. Herk was a pillar of the organization, a pioneer and, true to his first name, a force of nature. Herk had been with EAS for 35 years, serving as EAS’ first African-American president in 1994 and continued to actively support EAS even after retiring from a successful career in NJ and moving to
