On May 9-11th, the 12thAnnual Conference andExhibitiononAnalytical Chemistry of China was held in theHongshan auditorium, Wuhan City. The sponsors of thisconference were Chinese Chemical Society and National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the assistant organizer was Huazhong Normal University. About 2200 scientists, scholars, postdoctors, students and exhibitors from universities, institutions and enterprises attended the annual conference, including about 20 researchers from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics. Prof. Yukui Zhang gave a Plenary Lecture on “Research Advance in the Separation Science for Analytical Chemistry” and Prof. HanfaZou gave a Plenary Lecture on “New Technologies and Methods for Proteome Post-Translational Modifications”. Prof. HanfaZou received the “Liang Shuquan Fundamental Research Award in Analytical Chemistry” along with Prof. Jinming Lin from Tsinghua University and Prof. Qun Fang from Zhejiang University, and Prof. Lihua Zhang received the “China Female Analytical Chemist Award” in the open ceremony of the annual conference.
The “Liang Shuquan Fundamental Research Award in Analytical Chemistry” is named after the famous analytical chemist Mr. Liang Shuquan, which is the top award in Analytical Chemistry of China and is awarded ever three years. The purpose of this award is encouraging the young and middle-age analytical chemists devoting to the fundamental research and education and promoting the development of Analytical Chemistry of China.
In the past 20 years, Prof. HanfaZoudevoted to the fundamental theory of Chromatography and new technologies and methods for bioanalysis, achieving systematic innovations on the separation mechanism and monolithic solid phase in both LiquidChromatography and Capillary Electro-Chromatography, new technologies and methods in high-efficient Proteome and related Post-Translational Modifications analyses.
In the open ceremony of the annual conference, the “China Female Analytical Chemist Award” was issued to Prof. Lihua Zhang from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics along withAcademicianShaojun Dong and AcademicianXiurong Yang from Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry、Prof. XiaohongQian from Academy of Military Medical Sciences、Prof. Jin Ouyang from Beijing Normal University、Prof. Xiaohong Fang from Institute of Chemistry、Prof. Hua Cui from University of Science and Technology of China、Prof. Baohong Liu from Fudan University、Prof. JingjuanXu from Nanjing University、Prof. Xiaomei Yan from Xiamen University、Prof. Yang Tian from East China Normal University、Prof. Xuemei Wang from Southeast University、Prof. HongyingZhong from Central China Normal University、Prof. Gongke Li from Sun Yat-Sen University and Prof. Mengqiu Dong from National Institute of Biological Sciences.(Author:Fangjun Wang)
