In addition, Dr. Dolan has written more than 130 papers on HPLC and related topics. He is the coauthor of Troubleshooting HPLC Systems, High-Performance Gradient Elution, and Introduction to Modern Liquid Chromatography, three authoritative books in the field. Dr. Dolan is the recipient of the Palmer Award (Minnesota Chromatography Forum) and the Dal Nogare Award (Chromatography Forum of Delaware Valley).

Dr. Dolan’s experience in two different analytical instrument companies, and involvement in design and writing the DryLab software give him a solid background in instrumentation and software. Fifteen years managing LC Resources’ Laboratory Services group provided a unique “hands-on” perspective in pharmaceutical product development, analysis of drugs in biological systems, and other practical HPLC applications.. He has taught HPLC techniques to more than 10,000 of students over the last 30 years. He is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of LCGC and a member of the Council of Experts for the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP).
