How is your chromatography making a difference in the world?

Tell us by participating to the HPLC Tube Scientific Contest!

HPLC Tube is a brand-new contest, that will be proposed for the first time in the long history of HPLC Symposium in Milan.
Unlike traditional scientific contests, application to HPLC Tube requires no paper, no abstract, but a video (max 3 minutes) on the presenting scientist’s own results. Submission is due by May 16, 2019.

Among all videos, an international Jury will select the nominees for HPLC Tube final round which is scheduled at the Auditorium of University of Milano-Bicocca on June 19, from h. 6.00 to 7.00 pm.

At the end of the Session, participants are invited to a nice Apero.
All finalists will be invited to HPLC2019 Gala Dinner sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific (June 19th at the Università degli Studi di Milano - Via Festa del Perdono, 7 - Milan) where winners will be announced and rewarded with a trophy and a cash prize:
