Schug to receive award from American Chemical Society
     
UT Arlington associate professor Kevin Schug will be recognized next year at the international laboratory science conference Pittcon 2013 for his outstanding contributions to analytical chemistry, the conference's organizing committee announced this week.

Schug will receive the American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science. His award is among 12 different honors that will be presented during symposiums at Pittcon 2013, which is scheduled March 17-21 in Philadelphia.

"It is a great honor to be selected for this prestigious award from the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry and to join the ranks of great scientists who have won this award before me," said Schug, who is also the Shimadzu Distinguished Professor of Analytical Chemistry at The University of Texas at Arlington. "My goal is to make this a sign of the great things still to come from our group in the future."

Schug, who joined the College of Science in 2005, received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Program or CAREER award in 2009 and the 2010 Estyle="color:#F90"li Lilly Young and Company Young Investigator Award for Analytical Chemistry. He is also director of the

Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry at UT Arlington. Schug's group at UT Arlington performs a variety of analytical chemistry research along both fundamental and applied paths. Some examples of the team's work include developing increased throughput mass spectrometry methods for drug discovery and ultra-trace quantitative analysis methods for small molecules in biological fluids. The team also has worked closely with North Texas medical schools to support preclinical and clinical trial studies related to treatment of traumatic brain injury and other maladies.

"We are proud to see this well-deserved recognition of Kevin Schug's scientific work," said Pamela Jansma, dean of the UT Arlington College of Science. "His contributions inside and outside the lab - from mentoring students to building relationships with industry - are critical to the success of the College of Science."
