The Analytical Scientist Power List 2022 – Top 40 Under 40
Celebrating the rising stars who will save us from the future!
James Strachan | | News
It has been a tumultuous four years since our last Top 40 Under 40 Power List. Just as the world tentatively began to move on from the COVID-19 pandemic, more dark clouds – the events in Ukraine, rising inflation, and the energy crisis – arrived. Also looming large are longer-term issues such as climate change and an aging population.
We’ve all seen the crucial role scientists played in fighting COVID-19, from developing new diagnostic tests to scaling up and rolling out vaccines. And it’s clear we’ll need more keen minds to tackle the many crises ahead.
Here, we celebrate analytical science’s rising stars, who will, hopefully, provide the answers to the 21st century’s biggest questions. The good news is that many of the 40 names below are already working hard on analytical problems in atmospheric science, battery electrochemistry, and cancer diagnosis or developing new instruments and enhancing our understanding of the core techniques. All have the potential to make a profound difference.
Within their analyses of the current state of affairs, their predictions for the future, and their personal mission statements, we hope you find good reason to be optimistic. We’re in safe hands, folks!
