Happy Pride Month everybody!


This week I’ve included a range of pieces, from a mass spec-themed poem (if you have any analytical chemistry poetry, please do share it with us!) to a chat with Renã Robinson about the need for patient diversity in Alzheimer’s research. If you’re doing anything to celebrate Pride Month, get in touch and let us know. Maybe we can celebrate together! Until next time, Matt Hallam, Editor
