Georges A. Guiochon, a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, just published his 1,000th paper. Such an extraordinary achievement is reflective of his international renown as a chromatography expert. This renown is also revealed by his six books, four honorary doctorates, 15 national or international medals or awards, and numerous research grants from industrial and governmental agencies. Guiochon has also been the organizer of 27 national and international symposia and has held editorial positions on six major journals. Among his most recent honors, Guiochon was elected as a corresponding member of the Reial Academia de Ciencias i Arts of Barcelona, and he received the LC/GC Lifetime Achievement Award and the Professor Andrzej Waksmunski Medal of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
