The Power List 2017 – 10 Top 10s

The Analytical Scientist Power List is back. And this year, 10 is the magic number…

Got a great supervisor? A collaborator who goes the extra mile? A colleague you’d like to see recognized? You have 10 weeks to nominate them for the “10 Top 10s” Power List.

For 2017, we want you to let us know the best and brightest analytical scientists across 10 categories. The nominees will be whittled down to the final Top 10s by our judging panel, made up of top industry and academic scientists, and the editorial team. The categories are:

  1. Separation Scientists: Cutting-edge chromatographers and electrophoresis experts
  2. Spectroscopists: Leading lights in spectroscopy
  3. Mass Spectrometrists: Masters of mass spec
  4. Giants of Nano: Scientists advancing microfluidics and nanoscale science
  5. Pharma Pioneers: Stars of pharma and biopharma
  6. Omics Explorers: Researchers uncovering the secrets of life through genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics and more.
  7. Public Defenders: Scientists protecting people and planet - in food, forensic and environmental analysis
  8. Inventors: Clever minds whose breakthroughs are changing analytical science
  9. Mentors: Supervisors, colleagues or teachers truly inspiring the next generation of scientists
  10. Leaders: Analytical champions influencing the progress of measurement science

The Power List, now in its fifth year, has a simple yet important aim: to celebrate the great work of analytical scientists all over the world. As a previous entrant says, “Anything that draws attention to the profound influence analytical science has on our lives is a very good thing.”

Generating excitement (and often controversy), the Power List has become an annual talking point within the field and the wider scientific community. For example, last year’s inspirational Top 50 Women drew attention to underrepresentation in analytical science – and our Top 40 Under 40 shone a spotlight on up-and-coming talent. 

You have 10 weeks to nominate your analytical heroes – whether colleagues, mentors, friends or inspirations – for the recognition they deserve. You can make nominations in any or all categories. 

The nominees will be whittled down to the final Top 10s by our judging panel, made up of top industry and academic scientists – and The Analytical Scientist editorial team.
