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 The nature of GRC meetings mean that a lot of unpublished data are presented, so I can’t go into detail but I can tell you that it was an interesting and stimulating few days of excellent science.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.

A focus on mass spectrometry

Focus on mass spectrometryMass spectrometry is a broad and rapidly developing area of analytical science, which is of great interest whether you are developing new instruments or applying techniques to study something specific.

We’re committed to publishing the best new research in mass spectrometry and have collected together some recent and popular content from both Analyst and Analytical Methods for you to enjoy.  These articles will be free until 25 December (our Christmas present to you) so make the most of this and take a look.

Why not submit your next paper to Analyst or Analytical Methods?  We have a truly international readership meaning your research will reach a wide audience, and we work closely with our Boards of leading experts, including:

  • R. Graham Cooks, Purdue University – Analyst Editorial Board
  • Vicky Wysocki, University of Arizona – Analyst Editorial Board
  • Evan Williams, Analyst Associate Editor for the Americas
  • Xinrong Zhang, Analyst Associate Editor for Asia
  • Jentaie Shiea, Analytical Methods Editorial Board
  • Facundo Fernandez, Georgia Institute of Technology – Analyst Advisory Board
  • Julia Laskin, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory – Analyst Advisory Board
  • Frank Sobbott, University of Antwerp – Analyst Advisory Board
  • Renato Zenobi, ETH – Analyst Advisory Board

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.
