Cancer themed issues across the Royal Society of Chemistry

Cancer themed issues across the Royal Society of Chemistry publications portfolio

Cancer remains a devastating disease with 580,350 deaths and 1.66 million new cases reported in the US alone in 2013. With 7.5 million deaths worldwide, cancer is the number 1 killer globally. Although 5-year survival rates have risen from 50% in 1975-77 to 68% in 2003-2008, major challenges remain toward further improving survival rates. The keys to realizing increased 5-year survival rates depend on significant improvements in early detection strategies as well as personalized treatment selection and effectively monitoring for disease recurrence. All of these focus areas can be enhanced through the development of new technological tools.

Rayleigh, Ramsay, Rutherford and Raman

In his recently published Editorial, Robin Clark talks about the key contributions of the four great Nobel Laureates – Lord Rayleigh, Sir William Ramsay, Lord Rutherford and Sir Chandrasekhara Raman – to the understanding of light scattering, to the identification and classification of the rare gases, and to the discovery of the Raman effect.

GRC on Bioanalytical Sensors

I’m writing this from Boston Logan Airport, waiting to catch my flight after the 2012 GRC on Bioanalytical Sensors, which took place at Salve Regina University, Newport, Rhode Island, USA. The nature of GRC meetings mean that a lot of unpublished data are presented, so I can’t go into detail but I can tell you that it was an interesting and stimulating few days of excellent science. And the weather was an improvement on Cambridge too!

Chair of the meeting was our Associate Editor Professor Steve Soper, and one of the Vice-Chairs was Professor Sue Lunte, Associate Editor for our sister journal, Analytical Methods. In addition, a number of speakers have published with us, not just in Analyst but in a variety of journals – this really reflects the diverse nature of the programme, from surface chemistry to biology.

We’ve collected together some of these papers, which will be free to access until 13 July – do the use the opportunity to (re)discover the best in this area of research.

Take a look at the collection of papers here.

Including:

Sampling techniques for single-cell electrophoresis

The best of Brazil: popular Analyst articles

Brazilian flag

The Brazilian government hopes to improve the country's knowledge base in key scientific disciplines

Universities in Germany, the US, the UK and other nations are preparing for an influx of tens of thousands of Brazilian students, doctoral candidates and post-docs in the next three years.

The students will start arriving in January as part of Brazil’s new Science Without Borders programme.

The goal of the programme is to more than quadruple the number of Brazilians studying abroad to 75,000 by 2014. The plan is to place them at leading universities in fields of strategic national importance to Brazil.

To find out more, read the full story at Chemistry World.

Brazil is certainly growing in scientific output – here, we’ve collected together some of our recent content from Brazilian authors for you to take a look at.  They are free to access until the end of October:
