February 2020 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Our joint January/February issue kickstarts the first of two Special Series for The Analytical Scientist in 2020, “Advanced Clinical Analysis.” Ron Heeren (M4I Director) explores the state of the field in his guest editorial, and we dive straight into the spectroscopic approaches transforming surgical practice with our Spectroscopist Inside feature: Operation Spectroscopy. Beyond the clinic, we explore the humanitarian efforts of Chemists Without Borders, follow the gurus bringing 2DMS to mainstream analytics, and review landmark papers of 2019 with an expert panel.
