May 2017 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our May issue! In Upfront, we show how differential mobility could speed up drug discovery, how extracellular vesicles could improve breast cancer diagnosis, and tell you more about the next two months’ analytical science conferences. Enrico Davoli explores the space dimension in our cover feature, while gurus old and new ask: are we still pushing the limits of liquid chromatography? We introduce two student-proof instruments for training tomorrow’s scientists, and Sit Down With GCxGC “game changer”, Tadeusz Górecki.
