Pharmacological award

Doctoral chemistry student Khaja Muneeruddin of the University of Massachusetts Amherst is one of the promising young scientists to receive this year's Global Fellowship Award from the United States Pharmacopeial Convention to the value of $30000. The award aims to advance research in quality standards that manufacturers must follow in making pharmaceutical products. Working under Igor Kaltashov, Muneeruddin develops new analytical methods using liquid chromatography and gas phase chemistry in mass spectrometry to characterize pharmaceuticals.
