The Pittcon 2013 Program Committee is pleased to announce the recipients of 12 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 2013, March 17-21, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA. and will include presentations from scientists in diverse disciplines such as bioanalytical, biomedical, nanotechnology, food science, drug discovery, biomedical, materials science, homeland security, and neurochemistry. Methodologies represented include molecular, vibrational, and mass spectroscopy; capillary electrophoresis; HPLC; infrared and Raman spectrometry; LC/MS; UV/VIS; microfluidics; electrochemistry; and portable instruments.

A new award for this year, the Robert Boyle Prize for Analytical Science, was established by the Royal Society of Chemistry for outstanding contributions to analytical science. It was awarded to Norman Dovichi for pioneering development of ultrasensitive separations, including the first separations at zepto- and yoctomole levels and capillary electrophoresis-based DNA sequencing for the human genome.

Currently, the focus of his work is on chemical cytometry - the complete, accurate analysis of the biochemical machinery of a single living cell as a function of the state of the cell in the cell cycle and its relation to disease state. Dr Dovichi is focusing his efforts on those areas where ultrasensitive chemical measurements can aid in the intelligent management of a course of therapy.

Other awards and recipients are as follows:

Pittsburgh Spectroscopy Award: Laurence A. Nafie, Syracuse University

Pittsburgh Analytical Chemistry Award David R. Walt, Tufts University

Pittcon Heritage Award Posthumously awarded to Guenther Laukien, Founder of Bruker. The award will be accepted by his son, Frank H. Laukien, Bruker Corporation.
