A Green Pioneer

Dana Kolpin, Research Hydrologist at the US Geological Survey Central Midwest Water Science Center, Iowa, US, has been named the recipient of Recipharm’s 2019 International Environmental Award. Kolpin has published over 220 papers and reports on environmental contaminants that are used in today’s society, including pharmaceuticals. Kolpin also regularly collaborates with international colleagues to conduct research on environmental contaminants and is one of the founding organizers of Emerging Contaminants -- an international conference series.

“Kolpin’s work represents a pioneering approach to exploring the potential effects and risks of contaminants, including pharmaceuticals, on the environment. His research has been both influential and inspirational for other scientists in this field and has without a doubt been essential in building a stronger understanding of the environmental impact of various types of contaminants,” said Lars Backsell, Chairman of the Board of Recipharm.

Though the experience was amazing and I learned a great deal from it, I jumped at the opportunity to work for Texere. I'm excited to see where this new journey takes me!
