ABS Trust: Gordon F. Kirkbright and Edward Steers Bursary Awards, 2022.

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 able to award an annual 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 2022 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary and the 2022 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.

Dr Yi-Lun Ying

Dr. Yi-Lun Ying received her B.Sc in Fine Chemistry (2009), and Ph.D in Analytical Chemistry (2014)

Yilun Ying

from East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST). After a doctoral exchange study in the University of Birmingham (2014), Dr. Ying carried out her postdoctoral research on nanopore single-molecule analysis and nanoscaled biosensors at ECUST. Since 2016, she started her independent work on the nanopore electrochemistry at ECUST. In 2019, she was promoted to professor at State Key Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry for Life Science in Nanjing University and also acted as a co-PI at the Chemistry and Biomedicine Innovation Center.Dr. Ying currently focuses on developing electro-optical nanopore sensing modules for addressing peptide/protein sequencing and revealing the heterogeneous structure-activity relationship of the single biomolecules. To push the detection limit of the electrochemical measurement, her team is currently exploring the advanced artificial intelligence for nanopore arrays and innovating new sensing mechanisms to reserve the richest single molecule dynamics.

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.
