Arnold O. Beckman Medal and Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievements in The Field Of Electrodriven Separations Techniquesmedal

This annual award recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of electrodriven separation techniques and comprises a medal, diploma and a $5,000 prize, as well as the reimbursement of reasonable travel expenses to the MicroScale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB) symposium. The award recipient will have made an outstanding career achievement supported by a significant body of work in the field of electrodriven separations with particular consideration given to the developments of new methods, techniques, and high impact applications.

bob gasProfessor Bohuslav Gaš, dean of the Faculty of Science at the Charles University in Prague was presented the 2016 Arnold O. Beckman Award and Medal for Outstanding Achievements in the Field of Electrodriven Separations during the 32nd International Symposium on MicroScale Separations and Bio-Analyses (MSB2016) in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Canada

Professor Gaš earned his undergraduate and doctoral degrees from Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, in 1975 and 1979, respectively. Professor Gaš began is career at the Research Institute of Organic Syntheses, Analytical-Physical Laboratories, in Pardubice, Czech Republic, where he was engaged in the theory of electronic spectra and quantum chemistry. Later, he joined the Jaroslav Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry, in Prague, where his research was devoted to optical properties of ruthenium complexes.
