Fourth-year ChE graduate student Lucas Kimerer received a Best Poster Award at the 48th International Symposium on High-Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (known as HPLC 2019) held in Milan, Italy, in June. Lucas’ poster was selected out of 508 poster presentations at the event. He received a certificate and a cash award.

Last fall, Lucas received a Georges Guiochon Chromatography Award for best poster at the 2018 Washington Chromatography Discussion Group Poster Session held in Bethesda, Md., which provided a travel grant allowing him to attend the Milan conference. In Milan, he presented new work titled “Chomatographic Behavior of Bivalent Bispecific Antibodies on Cation Exchange Columns.”

Lucas works in Lawrence R. Quarles Professor of Chemical Engineering Giorgio Carta’s Bioseparations Engineering Lab.
