It is with great sadness that we share the news that our Advisory Board member and dear colleague Professor Joseph Caruso has recently passed away. Over the years he has been very active for the Royal Society of Chemistry and as well as serving as Chair for JAAS, he was the founding Chair for Metallomics, and became one of the leaders in this emerging area of exciting research.
During his career he was honoured with many awards including the American Chemical Society’s Cincinnati Chemist of the Year Award in 1992, the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Society’s Anachem Award in 1994, and the Spectrochemical Analysis Award given by the Analytical Division of the American Chemical Society in 2000. More recently he received the Theophilus Redwood Lectureship Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2013 and the Eastern Analytical Symposium Fields of Analytical Chemistry Award in 2014.
His contributions as a scientist, teacher, colleague and friend will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
