May 2020 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Our May features cover topics from the necessity of analytical science in ensuring patient safety to the history of HPLC (as overheard in a work-break conversation between Peter Schoenmakers and Bob Pirok) and the shifting landscape of 2020's conference season amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Plus, we explore the transition from benchside to boardrooms with Scott Rudder of Innovative Photonic Solutions, and Caroline West discusses research in the French "cosmetics valley" - where SFC is applied across therapies and fragrance development.
