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!

SciX 2018, a conference featuring cutting edge developments in analytical sciences, instrumentation and unique applications, was held in Altanta, GA from October 21-26, 2018.

 

Award-Winning Scientists

The Analyst Emerging Investigator Lectureship 2018 recognizes an early career analytical scientist to raise the profile of the analytical sciences to the wider scientific community and general public. This year’s winner was Dr Wei Min, Columbia University, USA. His current research interests focus on developing novel optical spectroscopy and microscopy technology to address biomedical problems. In particular, his group has made important contributions to the development of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy and its broad application in biomedical imaging including bioorthogonal chemical imaging of small molecules and super-multiplex vibrational imaging.

Wei Min presents his Analyst Emerging Investigator Lecture

 

Analyst Chair Duncan Graham presents Wei Min with the Analyst Emerging Investigator Lectureship in Atlanta, USA

 

Wei gave a fascinating presentation during the Monday morning session, which was followed by a highly attended symposium of personally hand-picked speakers.

Symposium speakers: Juergen Popp, Duncan Graham, Richard Zare, Wei Min, Lingyan Shi, Katsumasa Fujita.

 

Congratulations Wei!

 

It also gives us great pleasure to announce that Analytical Methods Associate Editor Michael Roper and former Analytical Methods Editor-in-Chief Sue Lunte both received awards at SciX 2018.

Michael Roper was the recipient of the AES Mid-Career Award. After being presented with his award, Michael delivered a plenary lecture titled  “Electrophoretic Methods for Investigating Dynamic Behaviour of Pancreatic Cells”.

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.

MSB 2018

The 34th International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB 2018) is to be held at the conference center of the Windsor Barra Hotel (Barra da Tijuca) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from February 18-21, 2018.

Since its inception in 1989 (Boston, Massachusetts, USA), MSB has evolved into an interactive forum for the discussion of cutting-edge research on the frontiers of separation science, spanning fundamental theory, method development, technology advancements to innovative applications relevant to human health, medicine, food and the environment.

MSB 2018 centers on science and people by creating a confidential ambience that facilitates vigorous exchange between delegates. This edition will feature stimulating pre-conference short-courses, distinguished plenary speakers and a parallel program covering a wide spectrum of current microscale bioseparation techniques.

The symposium format encompasses several significant features:

  • A scientific program, where over 70% is based on submitted abstracts.
  • A double-blind peer review process ensuring top science regardless of reputation or seniority.
  • Oral presentations with 1/3 of the time reserved for active discussion.
  • Topic sessions introduced and chaired by leading researchers.
  • A young investigator session with rising stars in microscale separations.
  • Poster sessions with selected 3-minute talks.
  • Science Café lunch seminars by vendors presenting advances in commercial separation technology.

Registration includes lunches, opening & closing receptions, and a symposium dinner at the iconic “Pão de Açúcar” (Sugar Loaf) scenic venue.

Since the MSB 2018 date is just one week after Carnival in Rio, delegates are invited to come a day earlier to join  a pre-symposium social activity: the Champion’s Parade of Rio Samba Schools on Feb. 17, 2018.
