Pittcon 2011 Honors Scientists for Outstanding Contributions

Pittsburgh, PA | Posted on December 9th, 2010

The awards, presented during a symposium at Pittcon 2011, March 13-18, Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC), Atlanta, Georgia, will recognize scientists from diverse disciplines including bioanalytical science, biomedical, chromatography, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, nanotechnology, separations science, and vibrational spectroscopy.

The Pittcon Heritage Award recognizes outstanding individuals whose entrepreneurial careers have shaped the instrumentation community, inspired achievement, promoted public understanding of the modern instrumentation sciences and highlighted the role of analytical chemistry in world economies. This year's award will be presented to the original founders of Thermo Electron, George Hatsopoulos, John Hatsopoulos, and Arvin Smith during Opening Session of Pittcon 2011, which begins at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 13 in the Sidney Marcus Auditorium, GWCC.
