Rowan University chemistry professor makes Top 40 Under 40 Power List 2018


The Analytical Scientist magazine named Dr. James Grinias, assistant professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Rowan University, to its 40 under 40 “Power List” for 2018.

Grinias spent the past several years researching the fundamentals of liquid-phase separations in capillary and microfluidic columns as well as applications in neuroscience, molecular physiology and pharmaceutical fields. Grinias’ work led to numerous presentations and nearly 20 peer-reviewed journal articles. He also studies the use of new technology to enhance educational outcomes in the undergraduate analytical chemistry curriculum.

Grinias received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Eastern Michigan University and his doctoral degree in analytical chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Grinias also completed a post-doctoral research fellowship at the University of Michigan. He received many honors for his work, including a National Science Foundation Graduate Research fellowship, National Institutes of Health National Research Service Award post-doctoral fellowship, 2013 Csaba Horvath Young Scientist Award and the 2017 Eastern Michigan University Young Alumnus of the Year award.

Since 2010, Grinias has been a member of the American Chemical Society and its Chromatography and Separations Chemistry subcommittee. He is an executive committee member of the Chromatography Forum of Delaware Valley and regularly serves as a reviewer for four separations-related journals.
