Agilent Scientist Wins Young Investigator Award

An Agilent scientist has been honored by the Chinese American Chromatography Association (CACA).

Xiaoli Wang, Ph.D., has received the 2016 CACA Young Investigator Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the development of separation science and its applications, especially in the field of chromatography.  Candidates were judged on the originality and overall quality of work, significance to the advancement of separation science and other supporting factors.

Dr. Wang is a research and development manager for Agilent in Delaware.  He has helped develop new biopharmaceutical columns that enable faster, more accurate analysis of monoclonal antibodies and peptides.  His work has helped customers save money with longer column lifetimes and faster analysis speed.  He has published 17 peer-reviewed journal articles and presented more than 30 podium and poster presentations at international conferences.

“Xiaoli is part of the new generation of chromatography experts, and his many contributions in his young career have been quite remarkable,” says Ron Majors, Ph.D., who provided the nomination.

CACA is a non-profit organization devoted to sharing technical information in separation sciences, particularly chromatography.  Dr. Wang received his award this week at Pittcon, the world’s leading conference and exposition for laboratory science.
