CASSS Travel Grant

The CASSS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Separation Science recognizes contributions to the fields of separation science and technology. A nominee must have made an outstanding contribution to the fields of separation science and technology with particular consideration given to developments of new methods and techniques. The 2017 winner will be announced and awarded at HPLC2017 Jeju.

CASSS, which began in 1983 as the Bay Area Chromatography Colloquium, honors its history with this award. This award has a long tradition with the first being presented in 1995. Currently CASSS is a global community of industry, academic and regulatory professionals who work together to resolve scientific challenges in the field of biopharmaceutical development and regulation. CASSS members are dedicated to facilitating the sharing of resources, information, and best practices in order to advance scientific knowledge for the benefit of our members and the public at large.

The Directors, Associate Directors, and all previous CASSS award winners were asked early in 2017 by the chair of the CASSS Academic committee to nominate a living person that meets the award citation requirements. They then voted for every nominee in ranked order. The nominee with the highest number of points is the award winner.  The winner was then asked by the chair of the academic committee to accept the award and was invited to come to HPLC2017 Jeju to receive the award and give a keynote lecture at the symposium.
