PD Dr. Joachim P. Weiss
PD Dr. Joachim P. Weiss after graduation in chemistry from the Technical University of Berlin (Germany) he worked in the field of Liquid and Gas Chromatography at the Hahn-Meitner- Institute in Berlin and received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry in 1982 from the Technical University of Berlin. In 2000, Prof. Guenther Bonn appointed him Visiting Professor at the Leopold- Franzens University in Innsbruck (Austria). Weiss habilitated in Analytical Chemistry at the Leopold - Franzens University in 2002. In 2011, 2014, and 2016, Prof. Jacek Namiesnik appointed him Visiting Professor at the Technical University of Gdansk (Poland). In 1982, Dr. Weiss started his professional career as an applications chemist at Dionex Corporation in Germany. From 1996 to 1997, he worked in the field of Scanning Probe Microscopy at TopoMetrix GmbH in Germany as a European Distributors Manager and rejoined Dionex Corporation (now part of Thermo Fisher Scientific) in 1998. He is currently retired from the position of Technical Director for Dionex Products within the Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry Division (CMD) of Thermo Fisher Scientific in Germany. Dr. Weiss is recognized as an international expert in Analytical Chemistry (especially in the field of Liquid/Ion Chromatography). The 4th edition of his Handbook of Ion Chromatography was published in 2016. In 2015, he was awarded the Maria Sklodowska Curie Medal of the Polish Chemical Society for his achievements in separation science.
Assoc. Dr. Levent PELİT
Assoc. Dr. Levent PELİT graduated from Ege University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry in 1998, and completed his master's and then doctoral studies at the Institute of Science, Analytical Chemistry Department of the same university in 2009. Since 1999, he has been working on the development of electroanalytical, spectroscopic, and chromatographic methods in the Chemistry Department of the Faculty of Science and continued his duty as a faculty member after receiving the title of associate professor in 2014. He has been involved in the field of analytical separation science, with special emphasis on modern sample preparation approaches, mainly in innovative sorption-based microextraction techniques. His main basic scientific research areas include the development of analytical methods for the determination of biomarkers for the diagnosis of diseases and the monitoring of environmental pollutants in different matrices. There are many projects, patent applications, and 30 publications involving translational studies on analytical chemistry and separation science.
Dr. Danilo Corradini
Dr. Danilo Corradini serves as principal investigator for the Italian Research Council (CNR) at the Institute for Biological Systems in Montelibretti, Rome, Italy. He is a member of the International Scientific Strategy Board of ADSI and of the Scientific International Board of the Mediterranean Separation Science Foundation Research and Training Center of Messina (Italy). He was a member of the General Advisory Board of the Italian Research National Council (2006-2012) and President of the Stirring Committee of the Interdivisional Group for Separation Science of the Italian Chemical Society (2010-2015). He actively participates in scientific advisory committees and grant review boards of several national and foreign institutions, including CNR, the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MUR), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF, Fonds zur Fonderung der Wissenschaftlihen Forschung, Wien, Austria), the Romanian Ministry of University and Research, the Czech Science Foundation, the Hungarian National Research Development and Innovation Office (NKFIH), and the Poland National Science Centre (Narodowe Centrum Nauki – NCN). Dr. Corradini is the author of over 130 scientific publications and has been the editor of the Second Edition of the Handbook of HPLC, published in 2010 by CRC Press (Taylor & Francis Group). He has been the chairman and member of the Scientific or/and Organizing committee of numerous national and international congresses and meetings and since 2011 he is a permanent member of the International Symposium on Separation Science series. Dr. Corradini has held teaching professorships at the University of Tuscia in Viterbo, Italy), at Leopold-Franzes Universität of Innsbruck, Austria, at Johannes Keppler Universität of Linz, Austria, and at University of Siena, Italy. He serves on the advisory board of several scientific international journals, including Journal of Liquid Chromatography & Related Technologies, LC-GC Europe and LC-GC Asia Pacific, International Journal of Analytical Chemistry, Current Analytical Chemistry, and Current Chromatography. His research activity covers the investigation of the separation mechanisms of biomolecules in capillary electrophoresis (CE) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and the development of advanced HPLC and CE methods for the identification and quantification of secondary metabolites in plant tissues, food matrices and cosmetics, and in the implementation of CE and HPLC in proteomics, metabolomics, and phytomics. He has received numerous awards, including the “Giacomo Dugo Medal” in 2021, the “Arnaldo Liberti Medal in 2014, the “Central European Group for Separation Science Award” in 2011, and the Csaba Horváth Memorial Award in 2009.
