Prof. Carr awarded the Martin Medal
Please join me in congratulating Prof. Pete Carr, who was just awarded the Martin Medal by the Chromatographic Society in the UK. The medal is named after Professor A.J.P. Martin who shared the 1952 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Anthony Synge for the development of partition chromatography. The 'Martin Medal' is the highest honour the Society confers and is awarded to scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of separation science. Prof. Carr was awarded this medal for his sustained and important contribution to the promotion of separation science globally. As stated by the award panel, his work on the fundamental theory of HPLC, stationary phase development and more recently his work in the areas of ultra-fast and two-dimensional chromatography has, and continues to be, pivotal in furthering our understanding of separation science. Congratulations, Pete!
