The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy (PITTCON) was held in Philadelphia, U.S.A, between March 17 and 21. Prof. Tan Weihong from HNU won the Ralph N. Adams Award and the Pittsburgh Analytical Chemistry Award. He wasthe first recipient of the two PITTON awards in a year. With the addition of the PITTCON Achievement Award received in 2004, Tan has won three PITTCON awards.

PITTCON is the world’s leading annual conference and exposition on laboratory science. It has traditionally been the most attended conference on analytical chemistry and applied spectroscopy in the world.
TheRalph N. Adams Award in Bioanalytical Chemistry is set in honor ofProf. Adams, a prominent American bioanalytical chemist. It recognizes significant contributions to the field of bioanalytical chemistry, broadly defined. The recipient will have introduced a significant technique, theory, instrument or application important to the life science, andprovided an exceptional environment to educate bioanalytical chemists. There is only one recipient for the award every year. The nominations are put forward by an anonymous committee of previous recipients.

The Pittsburgh Analytical Chemistry Award is PITTCON’s highest award, established in 1978. It honorsan individual’s significant contributions to the field of analytical chemistry. The nominations are voted by over 20 judges. The recipient last year was Zhuang Xiaowei, a Chinese-American biophysicist, professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and Professor of Physics at Harvard University, and academician of the American Academy of Science and the Chinese Academy of Science.
Certificate of Ralph N. Adams Award
PITTCON held two forums for Prof. Tan: "a broad range of topics related to novel chemical and nanotechnology approaches for bioanalysis and biomedicine" for his Ralph N. Adams Award; and, "state-of-the-art chemical and nanotechnology approaches for broadly defined analysis and biomedicine" for his Pittsburgh Analytical Chemistry Award.
