Barry Karger Receives Arnold O. Beckman Award
News Apr 28, 2014
SCIEX Separations, part of AB SCIEX, announced today that Professor Barry Karger, founding director of Northeastern University’s Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis, is the recipient of the Arnold O. Beckman Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievements in the field of electrodriven separation techniques. The award was presented yesterday as part of the opening ceremonies of the 30th International Symposium on Microscale Bioseparations. This annual award was initiated three years ago by the Capillary Electrophoresis Business Unit at Beckman Coulter, which has since combined with the Eksigent Chromatography Business to become SCIEX Separations.
In recognizing outstanding contributions to the field of electrodriven separation techniques, the award is given to an individual for noteworthy career achievements supported by a significant lifelong body of work. Particular consideration is given to the development of new methods, techniques and high-impact applications in the field of electrophoresis.
The award comprises a Medal, a Diploma, a monetary prize, and book describing Arnold O. Beckman’s 100-year legacy.
“We are very pleased to sponsor this medal and award,” said Jeff Chapman, director of the CE Business Unit at Sciex Separations. “Professor Karger’s career truly exemplifies the values that this award was created to acknowledge, and his scientific legacy has shaped what is now state-of-the-art implementation of capillary electrophoresis.”
Rapid Removal of Arsenic From Drinking Water...By Moss!News
A moss capable of removing arsenic from contaminated water has been discovered by researchers. And it happens quickly – in just one hour, the arsenic level is so low that the water is no longer harmful for people to drink.READ MORE
Stable Beta-Amyloid Dimers Identified in Alzheimer’s BrainsNews
A recent study exploited state-of-the-art mass spectrometry to provide the first direct evidence of beta-amyloid dimers in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and points to the potential of these molecules as biomarkers. Beta-amyloid dimers may be the smallest pathological species that trigger Alzheimer’s disease.
Protein Target Identified That Could Prevent StrokesNews
Scientists have identified a protein, called GPR68, that senses blood flow and tells small blood vessels called arterioles when to dilate. The researchers believe medications that activate GPR68 could one day be useful to treat medical conditions, including ischemic stroke.READ MORE
