International Award for Outstanding Contributions to Horse Racing Chemistry goes to Maxxam Analytics’ Young Scientist Rong Yi

 

untitledMaxxam’s Rong Yi, has been recognized by the  Association of Official Racing Chemists (AORC), with the prestigious Young Scientist Award.

“This is an outstanding achievement and this award clearly distinguishes Rong’s contributions to the science of forensic equine drug testing,” says Randy Leavitt, Senior VP, Environmental and Specialty Services at Maxxam.

Through this award, Rong’s work is being recognized internationally for advancing forensic toxicology knowledge and supporting integrity in the global racing community.

“Equally important, Rong’s work supports a long standing tradition of innovative contributions made by Canadian chemists within our company,” adds Randy.  “For more than 45 years, scientists at Maxxam (and its predecessor companies) have been regarded as some of the finest and most prolific in the industry.”

The Young Scientist Award is divided between three sections: AORC America, AORC Europe and AORC Asia. Each section could give up to two awards. Rong won the sole award presented to the AORC America section. The award was presented to Rong by the president of the AORC, during a gala dinner held October 20th.
