The Chromatography Forum of Delaware Valley:
2010 Student Award Symposium
The annual CFDV Student Award Symposium provides graduate and
undergraduate students with an opportunity to present their research in the
field of separation science at MARM. Presentation of a paper at this symposium
enables students to achieve recognition for their accomplishments, as well as developing
important career skills and professional contacts.
All students whose papers are accepted for presentation at the
Student Award Symposium will receive an honorarium of $250. Each student will
also receive a certificate acknowledging his/her accomplishment and
commemorating the event, which is sponsored by the
Chromatography Forum of Delaware Valley.
Though many participants are pursuing separation science as
their major course of study, students in the areas of medicine, biochemistry,
engineering and organic chemistry have successfully presented papers describing
areas of research that involve separations.
For a paper to be given full consideration for presentation at the
Student Award Symposium: submit a title & 250-word abstract to:
