The Power List 2014

James Edwards

Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry, Saint Louis University, St Louis, MO, USA.

Calling: “I’ve always loved solving challenging problems. Therefore, analytical chemistry was a natural fit for me. Developing metabolomic technologies for investigating diabetic complications holds a personal interest as I have juvenile-onset diabetes.”

Emphasis: “Improving metabolite quantitation through novel chemical tagging and separation platforms, and also developing MS compatible vascular mimetic systems.”

Predicton: “Portable mass spectrometry use will be expanded to surgery rooms and onsite forensic/pharmaceutical/food analyses.”

Advice: “There are two reasons to be in the lab: when things are working and when they’re not.”

Part of the Power List 2014

Top 40 Under 40

In 2013, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential analytical scientists – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. Our 2014 Top 40 Under 40 list almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977.
