The Dal Nogare award of the Chromatography Forum of the Delaware Valley honours scientists for their significant contributions to the fundamental understanding of the chromatographic process. Prof. Schoenmakers is the 47th awardee to receive this prestigious award which has been presented yearly since 1972.

Prof. Schoenmakers is full-time professor in Analytical Chemistry (including its applications in forensic science) at HIMS. His research focuses on analytical separations in general and on multi-dimensional liquid chromatography in particular. Since 2017 he also is the scientific director of HIMS. He is a member of the Permanent Scientific Committee of the HPLC series of conferences and he was the chairman of HPLC2013 Amsterdam. In 2016 he was awarded an ERC Advanced grant for the project STAMP (Separation Technology for A Million Peaks). Recent international awards include the CASSS Award (2015), the Csaba Horváth Memorial Award (2015), the John H. Knox Medal of the RSC (Belgium, 2014), the Martin medal of the Chromatographic Society (2011), and the EAS Award for Excellence in Separation Science (2010).
