Pittcon and All That Jazz

Pittcon is a highlight on many laboratory calendars, and Chicago 2017 looks set to be no exception. This year sees some exciting symposia on bioanalytics, the –omics and education, as well as sessions on the increasingly important role of analytical chemistry in the world of medical cannabis. And, of course, companies big and small will be displaying their wares on the endless exhibition floor. If you can’t make it, we’ll be live tweeting from @tAnaSci. If you are attending, here are our top picks from the vast program.

About the Author
Joanna Cummings

A former library manager and storyteller, I have wanted to write for magazines since I was six years old, when I used to make my own out of foolscap paper and sellotape and distribute them to my family. Since getting my MSc in Publishing, I’ve worked as a freelance writer and content creator for both digital and print, writing on subjects such as fashion, food, tourism, photography – and the history of Roman toilets. Now I can be found working on The Analytical Scientist, finding the ‘human angle’ to cutting-edge science stories.
