‘Grass Roots’ Event moves to Shropshire

Jun 14 2017

The Chromatographic Society is to once again hold a four-day chromatography educational event for post-graduate students and novice chromatographers. The event, launched on the back of the successful event held last year in Grasmere, takes place from 1st – 4th September, at the Long Mynd Hotel in Church Stretton.

The course will be delivered by a number of renowned expert chromatographers, namely Professor Mel Euerby from Shimadzu, Tony Taylor from Crawford Scientific, Professor Tony Edge from Agilent and Dr Paul Ferguson from AstraZeneca. Course content will focus primarily on the fundamentals of liquid chromatography and how this can be applied practically in industry and academia.
“Following the success of last year’s Grass Roots educational weekend in the Lake District, we have decided to hold a second course to enable those unable to attend last year, to join us,” explains Professor Edge. “We very much look forward to welcoming delegates to the charming setting of Church Stretton. This year, the course will comprise approximately 20 hours of lectures, together with ‘hands-on’ activities, a social walking programme and a number of evening events. Although the lecture programme will be ‘fixed’ content, there is significant scope to include additional topics requested by attendees in the initial session and informal discussion during walks and we are happy to discuss any specific chromatographic queries or issues. We look forward to an enjoyable and constructive weekend.”
The event is being sponsored by a number of chromatography companies, such as Shimadzu and the RSC Separation Science Group, who will provide full funding for a limited number of UK based post-graduate researchers to attend. In addition, The Chromatographic Society will provide a number of post graduate student bursaries and industrial bursaries for chromatographers working in small and medium sized companies.
“We welcome further interest from companies wishing to sponsor post-graduate students (MSc and doctoral) to attend this event.” concludes Professor Edge. “Once again, this is a superb opportunity to progress tomorrow’s chromatographers.”
