Malvern Instruments scientist receives Ernst Abbe Memorial Award at 50th anniversary of the Eastern Analytical Symposium


Dr E Neil Lewis (right) Chief Technology Officer at Malvern Instruments receives the Ernst Abbe Memorial Award of the New York Microscopical Society from Dr. John A. Reffner (left) of John Jay College who chaired the Ernst Abbe Memorial Awards session on 17 November 2011 during the 50th Eastern Analytical Symposium & Exposition in New Jersey.

Dr E. Neil Lewis, Chief Technology Officer at Malvern Instruments can now count the prestigious Ernst Abbe Memorial Award of the New York Microscopical Society among his accolades. He received the award, presented in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the science of microscopy, during the 50th Eastern Analytical Symposium & Exposition in New Jersey, and he joins a list of previous recipients who have made significant contributions to the field. Dr. Lewis is being recognized specifically for the development of chemical imaging microscopy.

The Ernst Abbe Memorial Awards session was chaired by Dr. John A. Reffner from John Jay College and Dr Lewis’s plenary lecture covered morphological and Raman spectroscopic measurements of complex heterogeneous materials.

Prior to his award presentation, visitors to EAS 2011 had an initial opportunity on Tuesday afternoon to hear Dr Lewis discuss the physical and chemical heterogeneity of biopharmaceutical products using imaging, light scattering and vibrational spectroscopy. His colleague, Dr Linda Kidder from Malvern’s Analytical Imaging team, also spoke about ‘Combined Particle Analysis and Raman Spectroscopy of a Nasal Spray: Chemically-Confirmed API Particle Size Distribution’ on Wednesday morning.

Neil Lewis received his PhD in Chemistry from the Polytechnic of Wales in the UK and did his postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the Laboratory of Chemical Physics in the USA.  He was tenured by the NIH in 1992 and subsequently held the position of Senior Biophysical Researcher. In 1999 he left to lead a new effort in developing chemical imaging systems as a Founder and President of Spectral Dimensions, Inc (SDI); the company was acquired in July 2006 by Malvern Instruments.
