The 2012 winner is:
Janusz Pawliszyn, FCIC
University of Warerloo
Department of Chemistry
Janusz Pawliszyn received his BSc in chemical engineering from Technical University of Gdansk in 1977 and his MSc in 1978. He received his PhD from Southern Illinois University in 1982. He is an author of over 400 scientific publications and a book on Solid Phase Microextraction. His Hirsch Index (H-index) is 71. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and CIC, editor of Analytica Chimica Acta, Trends in Analytical Chemistry and a member of the editorial board of Journal of Separation Science. He initiated a conference, “ExTech”, focusing on new advances in sample preparation and disseminates new scientific developments in the area. He received many awards including the McBryde Medal, Tswett Medal, Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography Award, Caledon Award, Jubilee Medal, Maxxam Award, Humboldt Research Award. Manning Principal Award and Ontario Premier’s Innovation Award. He presently holds the Canada Research Chair and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Chair in New Analytical Methods and Technologies.
The primary focus of Janusz Pawliszyn's research program is the design of highly automated and integrated instrumentation for the isolation of analytes from complex matrices and the subsequent separation, identification and determination of these species. Currently his research is focusing on elimination of organic solvents from the sample preparation step to facilitate on-site monitoring and in-vivo analysis. The major area of his interest involves the development and application of imaging detection techniques for microcolumn chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and micro chip separation devices.
