The secret to a successful interdisciplinary collaboration? I believe that interdisciplinary collaborations flourish when scientists are prepared to move outside of their traditional narrow areas of expertise and take the time to understand other disciplines. This takes considerable effort and time but true interdisciplinary collaboration only occurs when a mutual understanding of different perspectives exists.

The decade’s most important development?The development of Quantitative Structure-Retention Relationships technology – whereby the retention time of a compound can be predicted accurately based only on knowledge of its chemical structure. This technology has become particularly important in the elimination of false positives in non-targeted metabolomics using LCMS.
