Chemistry alumnus receives national emerging leader award

Dwight Stoll, an assistant professor of analytical chemistry at Gustavus Adolphus College, has been awarded the LCGC 2011 Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award. Stoll earned his doctorate in chemistry from the University of Minnesota in 2007.

The Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award recognizes the achievements and aspirations of a talented young scientific or technical professional who has made early career strides toward the advancement of chromatographic applications and techniques. LCGC is the industry's leading and most recognized resource for chromatographers.

Stoll has been teaching at Gustavus Adolphus since 2008. Beginning at the University of Minnesota, working with Professor Peter Carr, and continuing at Gustavus Adolphus College, he developed fast, comprehensive two-dimensional high performance liquid chromatography (c2D-HPLC) as an analytical tool capable of quickly separating and quantifying hundreds of chemical constituents of complex mixtures. In his post-doctoral work in the Department of Medicine at the University of Minnesota, working with Dr. Christine Wendt and Professor Gary Nelsestuen, Stoll used liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry to identify low molecular weight compounds involved in biological matrices.
