February 2022 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Meet the analytical scientists working to enhance our understanding of the past, preserve our cultural heritage, and uncover the secrets behind artistic masterworks, in this month’s cover feature. We also introduce our new Core Topics – Mass Spectrometry, Chromatography, Spectroscopy and BioPharma – with short roundtable discussions featuring leading figures from our 2021 Power List. In our opinion column, Lisa Jones makes the case for getting more diverse people into STEM, helping them stay there, and ensuring their hard work is fairly rewarded at the top, and Ernest Teye argues not enough is being done to combat the widespread problem of food fraud. And last but not least, we Sit Down With proteome explorer Albert Heck.
