About Csaba Horváth

Professor Csaba Horváth (1930-2004) was born in Hungary and graduated in chemical engineering from the Budapest Institute of Technology. After receiving his Ph.D. in physical chemistry at the J.W. Goethe University in Frankfurt under the direction of Prof. Halász, he immigrated to the United States in 1963 and started research at the Harvard Medical School. In the following year, Dr. Horváth moved to Yale where he designed and built the first high performance liquid chromatograph to demonstrate the feasibility and potential of HPLC in bioseparation sciences. He chaired the Department of Chemical Engineering at Yale from 1987 to 1993 and was named as Roberto C. Goizueta Professor of Chemical Engineering in 1998. Professor Horváth contributed close to 300 publications to the field of separation sciences and had nine patents. His main topics were all fundamental aspects of separations, including instrumentation, stationary phase designs, and mechanisms of separation processes, as well as their application mainly to biological and biomedical research, especially for the high-resolution separation of proteins and peptides.
