The Chromatographic Society recently held its Spring Symposium and AGM in Milton Keynes, hosted by Shimadzu UK, in their newly completed laboratories. With the Chromatographic Society celebrating half a century of supporting chromatography and chromatographers and Shimadzu celebrating 50 years of business in gas chromatography, Shimadzu?s laboratories made an appropriate venue for the symposium. In addition, attendees were able to see the various and significant technical achievements made by the company over the fifty years which were incorporated into a wall display at Shimadzu with space for future advancements. The symposium was divided into two sessions before and after a buffet lunch and exhibition. The morning session was introduced by Dr. Chris Bevan, President of the Society who emphasised that the symposium had something for everyone, dealing with the future of sample preparation, detection and data processing before moving onto one of the days highlights in awarding Dr. Kevin D. Altria of Pharmaceutical Development, GlaxoSmithKline R&D Harlow, the Society?s Silver Jubilee Medal for his outstanding contribution to the development, application and popularisation of capillary electrophoresis. The award was given in the presence of Dr Altria?s mother who proudly accompanied her son for the occasion.
