Professor David McCalley

Professor of Bioanalytical Science
University of West England

David McCalley is Professor of Bioanalytical Science at the University of the West of England, U.K. In both 2015 and 2013, he was named as one of the world’s 100 most influential analytical scientists by ‘Analytical Science’ magazine after a poll of its 60,000+ readers, and the input of an expert jury. He was awarded the Silver Jubilee medal of the Chromatographic Society in 2008. He serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Chromatography A and the magazine LC.GC, and has been a member of the Scientific Committee of a number of conferences including the HPLC 2013 symposium held in Amsterdam. In the past two years, he has given invited lectures in New Orleans, Stockholm, Salzburg, Brno, Harvard, Geneva, Helsinki, London and San Francisco. Professor ¬†McCalley’s research is directed towards the understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of separation that occur in liquid and gas chromatography. These studies in LC have included the effects of pressure on the separation, superficially porous packings, overloading effects, and hydrophilic interaction chromatography. His work has also been directed towards application of these techniques, for example in the development of robust methods for the analysis of strongly basic pharmaceuticals using LC, and the determination of sterols that are indicative of environmental pollution by GC. His work has been funded by the U.K. Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, by instrument manufacturers through donation of sophisticated analytical equipment and by the pharmaceutical industry.
