The Chromatographic Society Celebrates its Diamond Year with Educational Event in the Lake District
The Chromatographic Society is to hold a four day chromatography educational event in the Lake District, for post-graduate students and novice chromatographers.
The event, which will be held from 14th – 17th October at the Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere, comes during the society’s diamond anniversary year.
Delivered by a number of renowned expert chromatographers, namely Professor Mel Euerby from Shimadzu, Tony Taylor from Crawford Scientific, Professor Tony Edge from Agilent, Dr John Lough from the University of Sunderland and Dr Paul Ferguson from AstraZeneca, the course will focus on the fundamentals of liquid chromatography and how this can be applied practically in industry and academia.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming delegates to the Lake District for this event, which will comprise approximately 20 hours of lectures, together with walking activities and a number of evening events.” explains Dr Paul Ferguson. “The lecture programme itself will be ‘fixed’ content, but there is considerable scope to include additional topics as requested by attendees in the initial session and informal discussion during walks. We look forward to a successful and productive weekend.”
The event is being sponsored by a number of chromatography companies who will provide full funding for a limited number of UK based post-graduate researchers to attend. In addition, The Chromatographic Society will provide a number of post graduate student bursaries and industrial bursaries for chromatographers working in small and medium sized companies through their PASG industrial fund.
“We welcome further interest from companies wishing to sponsor post-graduate students (MSc and doctoral) to attend this event.” concludes Dr Ferguson. “This is an excellent opportunity to help develop the chromatographers of the future.”
