ChemImage’s Dr. Patrick Treado Honored with the 2010 Williams-Wright Award at PittCon


Pittsburgh, PA (ChemImage Corporation) – ChemImage Corporation is proud to announce Dr. Patrick J. Treado, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, will be presented with the Coblentz Society’s Williams-Wright Award at The Pittsburgh Conference (PittCon) and Expo 2010 (February 28th – March 5th, Orlando, FL). The Williams-Wright Award is presented annually to an industrial spectroscopist who has made significant contributions to vibrational spectroscopy while working in industry.

Jim McGlone, President of ChemImage, said, “We are very proud of Pat Treado’s accomplishments and pleased that the Coblentz Society has recognized him for his many outstanding contributions to the spectroscopy and imaging community. His commitment to innovation has not only elevated ChemImage but the entire industry.”

Dr. Treado founded ChemImage in 1994, working to bring the first Molecular Chemical Imaging technology to analytical chemists and research scientists throughout the industrial, government and academic sectors.

Today, Dr. Treado guides ChemImage’s R&D, investments, and intellectual property portfolio as well as leading efforts at ChemImage to develop and deploy molecular chemical imaging sensors and analysis software for detection of hazardous material. These sensors have the potential to address critical measurement needs and save lives.

In addition, Dr. Treado continues to drive standards development through his work in ASTM Committee E13.10 on Molecular Spectroscopic Optical Imaging Committee and AOAC Committee L on Biological Threat Agents.

“I am especially pleased to receive this award,” said Dr. Treado, “Having spent portions of my career in the government, academic and industrial sectors, it’s been an interesting journey to foster innovation in each of these environments. Industry, in particular, has allowed me, and a cadre of dedicated colleagues, to develop and mature chemical imaging technologies that are making an impact in the world today. I appreciate the recognition of my peers and being selected for this prestigious award.”
