Have you read these recent clinical spectroscopy papers in Analyst?

Vibrational spectroscopies, based on infrared absorption and/or Raman scattering provide a detailed fingerprint of a material, based on the chemical content. Diagnostic and prognostic tools based on these technologies have the potential to revolutionise our clinical systems leading to improved patient outcome, more efficient public services and significant economic savings. (Extract from critical review on “Clinical applications of infrared and Raman spectroscopy: state of play and future challenges” by Matthew Baker et al, Analyst, 10.1039/C7AN01871A).

We have gathered our most recent Analyst publications on both fundamental technological and analytical developments and exciting applications on this topic, and are delighted to share this collection with you.

Gordon F. Kirkbright and Edward Steers Bursary Awards, 2020

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. 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.

Owing to the generosity of one of our former trustees, an eminent atomic spectroscopist, Professor Edward B.M. Steers, we are now, from 2020, in the position of being able to award an Edward Steers bursary, in addition to the long standing Gordon Kirkbright bursary, to similarly assist a promising early scientist engaged in or utilising analytical spectroscopic techniques.

The ABS Trust defines 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 same conditions apply to each bursary.

Applications are invited for both the 2020 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary and the 2020 Edward Steers Bursary.  Although both funds are administered by the ABS Trust, the Kirkbright award is not restricted to spectroscopists, but is open to all involved with or utilising analytical science-based techniques.

Application Forms can be downloaded from:

http://www.abstrust.org/kirkbright-bursary-award-application-form

and:

http://www.abstrust.org/steers-bursary-award-application-form

or for further information visit:

http://www.abstrust.org/, or contact abstrustuk@gmail.com

The closing date for entries is 30 November 2019.

1st UK Microfluidics for Analytical Chemistry Conference

1st UK Microfluidics for Analytical Chemistry Conference will be held on Thursday 1 February 2018 at the National Oceanography Centre in SouthamptonUK.

 

This one day conference aims to bring together UK researchers developing and applying microfluidic systems for chemical and biochemical analysis. The meeting will cover all types of devices (lab-on-chip, digital microfluidics, paper microfluidics, total analytical systems etc.) and concern application to all forms of molecular analysis (biomedical, environmental, forensic, quality control etc.)

It will provide an opportunity to discuss recent developments in the field and develop future research opportunities as part of an overall aim to nurture and promote the UK microfluidic and analytical communities. This will also offer PhD students and early career researchers a chance to present their work.

Sessions will feature presentations by invited speakers, including keynote presentations from Nicole Pamme (Advisory Board Member for Lab on a Chip) and Joshua Edel (Advisory Board Member for Analyst), in addition to presentations selected from submission of abstracts. There will also be a chance to view the posters and exhibition, with additional networking possible during a wine reception at the end of the event.

Key deadlines:

Abstract deadline – 3rd December, 2018
