    About Csaba Horváth
    Professor Csaba Horváth (1930-2004) was born in Hungary and graduated in chemical engineering from the Budapest Institute of Technology. After receiving his Ph.D. in physical chemistry at the J.W. Goethe University in Frankfurt under the direction of Prof. Halász, he immigrated to the United States in 1963 and started research at the Harvard Medical School. In the following year, Dr. Horváth moved to Yale where he designed and built the first high performance liquid chromatograph to demonstrate the feasibility and potential of HPLC in bioseparation sciences. He chaired the Department of Chemical Engineering at Yale from 1987 to 1993 and was named as Roberto C. Goizueta Professor of Chemical Engineering in 1998. Professor Horváth contributed close to 300 publications to the field of separation sciences and had nine patents. His main topics were all fundamental aspects of separations, including instrumentation, stationary phase designs, and mechanisms of separation processes, as well as their application mainly to biological and biomedical research, especially for the high-resolution separation of proteins and peptides.

Neue, late scientist and Waters® Corporate Fellow. The award will be given at the 48th International Symposium on High-Performance-Liquid-Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2019) held from 16-20 June 2019 in Milan, Italy. The award is sponsored by Waters Corporation.

    Eligibility Criteria
    The award will honor a distinguished industrial scientist, 15-20 years or more after receiving his or her degree, who has made a significant contribution to the field of separation science. In addition, the awardee should be an industrial scientist, and one who was instrumental in the embodiment of technology in commercial products.

    The deadline for completing and submitting the nomination information packet is December 10, 2018. The nomination packet will include a CV with nominating letter by the original nominator and a supporting document by a second person. Both letters should describe an individual's impact on separation science based on presentations, publications, patent records, prior honors, and contribution to innovative products as well as impact on others who he/she has managed or trained. The packets will be valid for three consecutive years. The packet should be submitted to Martin_Gilar@waters.com.

    Selection Process
    Nominations will be considered by a group consisting of selected members of the Permanent HPLC Symposium Committee, and industrial researchers.

    The award recipient will receive a commemorative plaque, a $5,000 check and travel support. He/she will have an opportunity to present a research lecture at the following HPLC Symposium. The 2019 award will be given at the 48th International Symposium on High-Performance-Liquid-Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2019) held from 16-20 June 2019 in Milan, Italy. The recipient of the 2019 Uwe D. Neue Award in Separation Science is Dr. Christopher Welch. The award will be presented during the Opening Plenary Session on Sunday, June 16.

  • JFK Huber Lecture

    JFK Huber Lecture Award

    The JFK Huber Lecture Award was created in 2014 by the Austrian Society of Analytical Chemistry (ASAC) to honor scientists who have made major contributions to the advancement of HPLC in theory and practice. Based on nominations the Honouring Committee of the ASAC will select the awardee in nonregular fashion. The Award will be presented at international conferences related to separation sciences. Awardees so far: 2014 Attila Felinger (Pécs) at ISC 2014 Innsbruck, Austria and 2017 Gert Desmet (Brussels) at HPLC 2017 Prague, CZ.
    Prof. Joseph Franz Karl Huber (1 Jan, 1925 – 15 Aug, 2000) who gives this Award the name, received his Ph.D. degree in 1960 about a physicochemical topic under the supervision of Prof. Erica Cremer from the University Innsbruck (Austria). 1964 Joseph Huber moved to the Free University of Amsterdam (NL). In 1974 he moved back to Austria accepting the Chair of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Vienna where he became Emeritus in 1995. He is considered as one of the founding fathers of HPLC whereby his vision of the impact of small particles on the high efficiency of LC and of multidimensional LC marks the two corner stones of his research.

    About Georges Guiochon
    Professor Georges Guiochon (1931-2014) was born in France. He graduated in 1953 with an MS degree in engineering at Ecole Polytechnique (Paris, France) and received a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Paris (France) in 1958. He was a Professor of Chemistry at Ecole Polytechnique (1958-1985) and at the University Pierre et Marie Curie of Paris (1968-1984), then at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. (1984-1987). He was appointed a Distinguished Professor at the University of Tennessee (Department of Chemistry) and a Senior Scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Division of Chemical Sciences) in 1987. Georges Guiochon was the undisputed master of the theory in almost all fields related to chromatography. He presented many rigorous treatments on retention and, especially, efficiency in liquid chromatography. He provided the theoretical foundation for the large-scale application of preparative chromatography, which is now one of the key technologies of the emerging biopharmaceutical industry. More recently, Georges Guiochon guided the re-emergence of supercritical-fluid chromatography in the fundamentally correct directions. No other scientist has demonstrated the breadth of knowledge, nor the unceasing motivation, that Georges Guiochon used to shape the field of chromatography to where it is today. His efforts garnered awards that included 2 from the ACS and the LCGC Lifetime Achievement Award. He received honorary doctoral degrees from the Universities of Pardubice, Ramon Llull (Barcelona), Ferrara, and Science and Technology (Liaoning), and was inducted into the Spanish Academy of Science in 2011. He published 10 books and about 1100 peer-reviewed papers while performing research with over a hundred graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.
