GRC Bioanalytical Sensors 2018

The GRC Bioanalytical Sensors conference took place between 24th – 29th June 2018 in Newport, RI, USA. The conference was chaired by Robin L. McCarley and Analyst’s Editor-in-Chief, Duncan Graham, and Vice Chaired by Susan Daniel and Analyst’s Associate Editor Jean-Francois Masson.

The 2018 GRC Conference considered measurement science and engineering challenges that examine food and water safety, point-of-use healthcare, forensics, visualisation of living systems, and innovative ideas to sensing and creating measurements. The conference focused on many other interesting research areas, including future measurement challenges facing the pharmaceutical industry and healthcare systems.

The conference was attended by Maria Southall, Deputy Editor of Analyst, Analytical Methods and Lab on a Chip. On behalf of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Analyst and Analytical Methods were delighted to award two Young Investigators with cash prizes for outstanding poster prizes. Two other young investigators and poster winners were awarded by the ACS. The Young Investigators, as captured in the image below, were also invited to provide short talks during the conference.

Gordon F. Kirkbright Bursary Award, 2019

The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that assists a promising early career scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning. (We define early career as being either a student, or an employee in a non-tenured academic post or in industry, within 7 years of award of PhD excluding career breaks).

The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general. Although the fund is administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust, the award is not restricted to spectroscopists, but is open to all involved with or utilising analytical science-based techniques.

Applications are invited for the 2019 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary.
