The Power List 2020 has landed! Grab your passports and join us in celebrating 10 leading analytical minds from each continent (sans Antarctic – sorry). 


We hope you love this year’s List. Alongside it, we’ve also included an editorial from yours’ truly about the rationale of this year’s format and an opinion piece from last year’s Number One Jonathan Sweedler about the importance of diversity in scientific celebrations. Some Power List stats have also been added for good measure.  

Enjoy! Matt Hallam, Editor
