Lester W. Strock Award


The Lester W. Strock Award is given by the New England Section of the Society of Applied Spectroscopy in recognition of a selected publication of substantive research in/or application of analytical atomic spectrochemistry in the fields of earth science, life sciences, or stellar and cosmic sciences. More details on the award are available from the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.


2021 Recipient

Uwe Karst

Uwe Karst holds the Chair of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Münster, Germany, since 2005. Previously, he was appointed as Chair of Chemical Analysis at the University of Twente, The Netherlands, from 2001 until 2005. He is author of more than 350 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Furthermore, he serves as member of the Editorial Boards of several scientific journals.

Uwe´s research interests cover different aspects of mass spectrometry and hyphenated techniques, ranging from electrochemistry/mass spectrometry for the simulation of the oxidative metabolism of drugs to metal speciation analysis and elemental as well as molecular mass spectrometric bioimaging.

In recent years, the Karst group has organized several scientific conferences, including the International Symposium on Chromatography 2008 (720 participants), Metallomics 2011 (300 participants) and the European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry 2015 (750 participants), all held in the buildings of the University of Münster.
