缯span> About the Authors
IRA S. KRULL, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at Northeastern University, Boston, MA. He received the B.S. degree in Chemistry from City College of New York in 1962, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry in 1966 and 1968, both from New York University, NYC. He was a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Wisconsin from 1967-68, a Union Carbide Corporation Postdoctoral Fellow 1968-70, and a Weizmann Institute of Science Senior Postdoctoral Fellow 1970-72. He joined Northeastern University in 1979 as a Senior Scientist, and became Associate Professor of Chemistry in 1984. His research interests have been concerned with analytical chemistry/biochemistry, especially the development of instrumentation, methods, and applications for trace bioorganic/organic analysis. He has emphasized a variety of research interests, including:
1) solid phase
derivatizations for improved detection in HPLC/CE-detection
2) improved electrochemical detection via photochemical reactions or photoelectrochemical detection in flowing streams (HPLC/FIA-PED/hv-EC)
3) biopolymer determinations via linear diode array and low angle laser light scattering (LALLS) spectroscopies in HPLC/FIA
4) HPCE methods development and improved detection for drugs and biopolymers
5) immunochromatographic analysis and immunodetection in HPLC.
He is especially interested in developing novel detection approaches for drugs, bioorganics, and biopolymers, as well as applying these newer analytical methods to real world applications. He has tried to combine chemical or photochemical derivatizations, off- or on-line, with conventional HPLC detection approaches, such as UV/FL/EC/ICP/LALLS, leading to simpler and improved analytical procedures.
Dr. Krull has received the Barnett Innovative Research Award in Analytical Chemistry (1984), the Bioanalytical Sciences (BAS) Recognition of Outstanding Achievement Award (1988), and the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Outstanding Speaker Award for 1987. He has published over 200 research papers and reviews, has edited two books, coauthored two Primers, as well as having contributed chapters to several others. He is on the Editorial Advisory or Review Board of several journals in chromatography and analytical chemistry. Professional memberships include: American Chemical Society (ACS), Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (SEAC), Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC), and New York Academy of Sciences. He has lectured in the U.S., Canada, Israel, England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, Sweden, China, and Japan.
KAVITA MISTRY Ms. Mistry is a Research Chemist employed in the Analytical Research Department of Merck Research Laboratories and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in the Department of Chemistry at Northeastern University. She received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemistry from Stevens Institute of Technology. Her areas of interest include analysis of pharmaceuticals and biomolecules using a variety of separation tools such as HPLC, GC, CE, and CEC.
ROBERT L. STEVENSON, Ph.D., Managing Director of ABACUS GROUP, has over 25 years experience building business with firms such as UOP, Eppendorf, 3M, MICRA Scientific, Bio-Rad,Varian Associates, Altex Scientific, and TosoHass. Abacus Group is a consulting practice with over 10 years of demonstrated expertise in solving problems in distribution, business planning and product/market evaluation. Dr. Stevenson's services include market characterization, marketing strategy, distribution, recruiting, technology evaluation, business planning and acquisitions in the broad area of separation science, with a special focus on chromatography and electrophoresis applications, instrumentation and supplies.
Dr. Stevenson is also Editor of Separation Science for International Scientific Communications, Inc., publisher of American Laboratory, American Clinical Laboratory, American Biotechnology Laboratory and American Environmental Laboratory. He has authored over 350 publications during the past 10 years and is coauthor of Scientific Laboratory Markets in Europe: A Guide to Doing Business (HNB Publishing). Dr. Stevenson originated the editorial column "The World of Separation Science," which covers chromatography and related technology, with a strong focus on new instruments and applications. Dr. Stevenson was the developer and Chairman of the PrepTech symposium series and the Northeastern Environmental Symposium.
Dr. Stevenson serves as a Member of the Scientific Advisory Boards for PerSeptive Biosystems, Inc., LC Resources, and Cell Robotics, Inc. He has been active as Vice President, Treasurer and member of the Board of Directors of the California Separation Science Society for the past 13 years.
Dr. Stevenson received his Ph.D. degree in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Arizona in 1966, and his B.A. in Chemistry from Reed College in 1963.
MICHAEL E. SWARTZ, Ph.D., is a Senior Scientist in the Market Development Laboratory at Waters Corporation. Dr. Swartz received his bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the State University of New York College at Cortland and Master's degrees in Chemistry and Forensic Chemistry from Northeastern University, and he earned his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from the University of Rhode Island. He joined Waters in 1985, where he is currently responsible for LC/MS instrumentation and software development and evaluation, among other projects. He is the author of a book on validation, 4 book chapters on various subjects, 15 manuscripts, 2 patent applications; has edited a book on analytical techniques in combinatorial chemistry, and has presented over 80 papers at various technical symposia around the world. Dr. Swartz also writes the quarterly column Validation Viewpoint for, and serves on the editorial board of, LC/GC, The Magazine of Separation Science. Professional memberships include ACS, AAPS, and various regional chromatography discussion groups. Dr. Swartz's research interests include CE and LC/MS theory, with an emphasis on development, optimization, and validation of high sample throughput and automated methods and instrumentation in support of drug discovery.
