May 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our May issue! In Upfront, we hunt for hazards in cosmetics, have a pint with some scientists, and discover whether breast milk can help diagnose cancer. Personalized medicine is the focus of our features, including a behind-the-scenes look at the Maastricht MultiModal Molecular Imaging Institute and a plea for more chemistry in the clinic. Finally, we Sit Down With Genentech’s Kelly Zhang to discuss the need for more collaboration in pushing pharma forward.
