10th June – 15th June 2018

 

Analyst is delighted to announce that a themed collection based on the SPEC 2018 conference, to be held in Glasgow, 10th June – 15th June, is open for submissions! This collection will be guest-edited by Organising Committee Chair Matthew J. Baker from the University of Strathclyde, UK.

 

SPEC2018 will feature high quality presentations from scientists and clinicians, both from academia and industry, who are developing spectroscopic instrumentation and techniques to improve world health. This meeting will reflect on developments over the last two decades and look forward towards exciting future opportunities.

 

The Analyst SPEC2018 themed collection welcomes all delegates to submit their research to the journal. Papers can be based on oral or poster presentations to be given at SPEC2018, or on any other work that falls within the scope of both the journal and the conference. For more information on the journal scope, please visit our website. The submission deadline is the 29th June 2018. The collection will be published in late 2018 and will receive extensive promotion and high visibility within the analytical chemistry community.

SciX 2017, Reno, USA

SciX 2017, a conference featuring cutting edge developments in analytical sciences, instrumentation and unique applications, was held in Reno, NV from October 8-13, 2017.

Award-Winning Scientists

The Sir George Stokes Award recognizes outstanding and sustained contributions to analytical science by someone demonstrably working in a complementary field, which has led to developments of seminal importance to chemical analysis. It is awarded biennially and the winner is chosen by the Royal Society of Chemistry Analytical Division Awards Committee. We are delighted to announce that this year the award was presented to Tony Cass from Imperial College London at SciX 2017 in Reno. Tony  presented his prize lecture on Tackling Global Health Challenges with Biosensor Technologies on the 9th of October. Congratulations Tony!

It also gives us great pleasure to announce that Analyst Chair Duncan Graham and Analytical Methods Editor-in-Chief Scott Martin both received awards at SciX 2017. The Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy was awarded to Duncan Graham, who delivered his Plenary lecture “Mann up, SERS Can be Useful!” on Tuesday 10th October. Scott Martin was the recipient of the AES Mid-Career Award. After being presented with his award, Scott delivered a plenary lecture titled  “Using Microchip Electrophoresis and Electrochemical Detection to Investigate Cellular Communication”. We are extremely proud of Scott and Duncan. Congratulations on well-deserved awards.

RSC Sessions

Maria Southall, Deputy Editor of Analyst and Analytical Methods, attended SciX and chaired two Royal Society of Chemistry sessions – the RSC Sensors for Cancer Diagnostics session and the RSC Award session. Both sessions featured excellent presentations from experts in the field of analytical chemistry. The RSC Award session showcased the work of Danny O’Hare (Imperial College London, UK), Eiry Kobatake (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan), Xian-En Zhang (Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China) and Gianfranco Gilardi (University of Torino, Italy). At the RSC Sensors for Cancer Diagnostics session, Analyst Associate Editors Steven Soper (University of Kansas, USA) and Jean-Francois Masson (University of Montreal, Canada) presented some of their research, along with Analytical Methods Advisory Board member Amanda Hummon (University of Notre Dame, USA) and Peter Gardner from the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology.

Congratulations to the Analytical Research Forum 2017 prize winners!

The Analytical Research Forum 2017 was held on the 7th of July at Burlington House in London. The interdisciplinary one-day event featured invited talks, flash presentations and poster presentations on an impressive range of analytical techniques and applications. From the analysis of the hidden art beneath Rembrandt’s paintings to conducting life science experiments in outer space, the variety and calibre of work was of the highest standard.

Invited talks were given by Elaine Holmes (Imperial College, UK), Perdita Barran (University of Manchester, UK), David Peggie (National Gallery, UK) and Tony Ricco (NASA Research Laboratory, USA). Contributed talks and flash presentation sessions also enabled more participants to present a snapshot of their research to the analytical community.

Prizes were awarded by the RSC Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund to the best contributed talks and flash presentations. We are pleased to offer our congratulations to the prize winners:

  • Becki Scott (KU Leuven, Belgium), Contributed Talk, First Prize
  • Thomas Smith (University of Sheffield, UK), Contributed Talk, Second Prize
  • Ryan Kane (University of Strathclyde, UK), Flash Presentation, First Prize
  • Yuko P. Y. Lam (University of Warwick, UK) and Emily Kempa (University of Manchester, UK), Flash Presentations, joint Second Prize.

The Royal Society of Chemistry also awarded subscriptions to our journals Analyst, Analytical Methods and Lab on a Chip as prizes for the best posters on the day. We are delighted to recognise the excellent work of the following prize recipients:

  • Fay Nicolson (University of Strathclyde, UK) for a poster entitled “Through barrier detection using handheld surface enhanced spatially offset Raman spectroscopy”
  • Saba Al-Obaidy (Hull University, UK) for a poster entitled “Simple microfluidic platform to evaluate biological inspired nano-particles for focussed delivery of anti-bacterials”
  • Andrew Donohoe (Dublin City University, Ireland) for a poster entitled “Development of cost effective sensors for the in-situ monitoring of heavy metals”

Congratulations to Fay, Saba and Andrew for presenting top class analytical research!

Andrew Donohoe and Fay Nicholson accept their awards from Melissa Hanna-Brown,
President of the Royal Society of Chemistry Analytical Division

Congratulations to all the prize winners and many thanks to all the participants who contributed to a vibrant and exciting meeting!
