It is with heavy hearts and profound respect that we announce this memorial symposium to honor the life and legacy of the esteemed Dr. Andrew J. Alpert. Dr. Alpert is a brilliant scientist, a dedicated mentor, a devoted collaborator, and a legend in the field of chromatography. Dr. Alpert's significant contributions left an indelible mark on the world of chromatography! Andy touched the lives of so many, he was always willing to stop what he was doing and help others. Dr. Alpert was also a talented artist, linguist (four languages), musician (pianist), sportsman (pole vaulter), chef, naturalist, and above all – a beloved husband, father, brother, and grandfather to five grandchildren.
The symposium will feature distinguished speakers, colleagues, and friends together with his family members who will reflect upon his groundbreaking research, his pioneering ideas, and the lasting impact he had on the liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry/proteomics. This event will provide an opportunity for family members, friends, colleagues, mentees, and admirers of Dr. Alpert to come together and share their memories, stories, and research. We aim to celebrate his legacy by highlighting the extraordinary contributions he made to the field of chromatography and mass spectrometry-based proteomics as well as the personal connections he forged throughout his life.
In addition to the speakers, there will be opportunities for attendees to join the virtual reception, engage in networking sessions, and pay their respects through heartfelt tributes. The symposium aims to foster an atmosphere of intellectual exchange, inspiration, and remembrance, just as Dr. Alpert did throughout his distinguished career.
