Overview
This session honors the 2017 LCGC Award winners.

The 2017 LCGC Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Pat Sandra, received his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry in 1975 from Ghent University in Belgium and was promoted to Full Professor of Separation Sciences in 1988. In 1986 he founded the Research Institute for Chromatography in Belgium, a center for research and education in chromatography, mass spectrometry, and electrophoresis. He was a visiting professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands (1991-2000), and at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa (1998-2013). Pat Sandra has co-authored over 550 scientific publications and presented over 300 invited lectures at scientific meetings. He has received numerous international awards including three honorary doctor degrees.

The 2017 LCGC Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award winner, Deirdre Cabooter received a PhD in Chemical Engineering under Gert Desmet at the Free University of Brussels (VUB) in 2009. After postdoctoral work at the VUB and the Department of Chemistry and Polymer Science of Stellenbosch University, she became a research professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical and Pharmacological Sciences of the University of Leuven in 2011. Her research interests include the fundamental evaluation of novel supports in chromatography, the analysis of complex samples in diverse applications, retention modeling, and solutions for automated method development. She is currently the main promoter of five PhD students and the co-promoter of two.
