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:

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
“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” – J. R. R. Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings Welcome to the 55th Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exposition (EAS). Our theme this year, “Analytical Chemistry Opens Doors,” was chosen as I mused on the varied career paths that the Governing Board members have taken. We all have

Merlin Bruening is a Professor of Chemistry at Michigan State University. He received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 1989 and an M.S. in Chemistry in 1990 from Brigham Young University. In 1995, Dr. Bruening obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rohovot, Israel, where he worked under the direction of Abraham Shanzer. After an NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship at Texas A&M University with Richard Crooks, Merlin joined the faculty at Michigan State University in 1997.
Are you interested in a challenge? Would you enjoy designing experiments and competing against other state of the art laboratories developing an analytical method to characterize an unknown sample? If so, the EAS/CoSMoS Method Development Olympics (MDO) 2016 is the challenge for you! Judges will evaluate results based on accuracy and amount of ancillary information discovered as well as the creativity of the method development approach.
