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 Eli 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.
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"
Schug is representative of the
outstanding faculty at UT Arlington, a comprehensive research institution of
more than 33,200 students and more than 2,200 faculty members in the heart of
North Texas. Visit www.uta.edu to
