Apryll Stalcup is a Professor in the School of Chemical Sciences at Dublin City University. She received a BS in Chemistry from California State University-Sacramento (1979) and her PhD from Georgetown University in Washington, DC (1988). She was a Co-op Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland (1985-1988). After a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Missouri-Rolla, she moved to the University of Hawaii-Manoa in 1990. In 1996, she moved to the University of Cincinnati and promoted to Full Professor in 2001. She moved to Dublin City University In 2012 to become the Director of the Irish Separation Science Cluster (ISSC).
Dr. Stalcup’s research interests are in separation science. Her group pioneered the use of sulfated-β-cyclodextrin, heparin and quinine as chiral additives in capillary electrophoresis. They have been very active in the application of surface-confined ionic liquids (SCIL), demonstrated their wide application range (e.g., reversed phase, normal phase, ion exchange and ion exclusion) and successfully extended the Linear Solvation Energy Relationship (LSER) model to account for retention on these unique phases.
In 2011, she was awarded the Cincinnati Chemist of the Year by the Cincinnati Section of the American Chemical Society. In 2015, she received the American Microchemical Society A. A. Benedetti-Pichler Award and in 2021, she was the recipient of the Stephen Dal Nogare Award sponsored by the Chromatography Forum of the Delaware Valley. Dr. Stalcup is the author of over 100 publications, reviews, book chapters and one patent. She has served as the thesis/dissertation advisor or mentor to 32 postgraduate and Postdoctoral Fellows. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Chemistry of Ireland, the Royal Society of Chemistry, a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Association of the Advancement of Science and Sigma Xi. She served on the Royal Society of Chemistry Analytical Division Council, was a Contributing Editor for Trends in Analytical Chemistry and serves on the Editorial Board for Journal of Liquid Chromatography and Related Techniques. She was the Co-Chair (with Prof. Jeremy Glennon, University College Cork) of the 31st International Symposium on Chromatography in 2016.
