RSC awards at SciX 2019

SciX 2019, a conference featuring cutting edge developments in analytical sciences, instrumentation and unique applications, was held in Palm Springs, California, USA from October 13-18, 2019.

Royal Society of Chemistry Award-Winning Scientists

The RSC Theophilus Redwood award is given for interdisciplinary work at the interface of analytical, biological, and materials chemistry and skills for passionately and effectively communicating science to broad audiences. The 2018 award winner was Christy Haynes, University of Minnesota, USA.

Christy Haynes is the Elmore H. Northey Professor of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota where she leads the Haynes Research Group, a lab dedicated to applying analytical and nanomaterials chemistry in the context of biomedicine, ecology, and toxicology.

Christy was given her award by Professor Duncan Graham, President of the RSC Analytical Division and Analyst Editor-in-Chief and she gave a stimulating lecture on Polymer-enabled plasmonic sensing. Her lecture was followed by an award symposium with a lineup of speakers selected by Christy.

Congratulations Christy!
