The Separation Science Slam Is Back!

Some of you may remember HPLC 2019 in Milan. It was fabulous. If you do, you will likely remember the inaugural Separation Science Slam. It was a rare treat. 

I came back from HPLC 2019 (and ASMS 2019) buzzing – so much so that I felt compelled to write about it. And I couldn’t resist singling out the Separation Science Slam as something special…

“The upbeat session invited six young scientists to present their research in the most creative way – and it proved to be extremely entertaining. I was taken aback by the flair – and, in some cases, audacity – of the next generation of analytical heroes [...] Being part of a 300-strong crowd, clapping and cheering along to a [rap] about the extraordinary insulation properties of polyurethane foam? Well, you had to be there.”

As for the second Separation Science Slam? Well, you have to be there. 

And so, I call upon you all to either i) submit a 100-word abstract (if you’re 35 years old or younger) or ii) invite your students, friends, or colleagues to submit a 100-word abstract.

There will be laughter.

There will be cheering.

And, for the three winners, there will be money and fame (or at least infamy).

Submit your 100-word abstract today!

About the Author
Rich Whitworth

Rich Whitworth completed his studies in medical biochemistry at the University of Leicester, UK, in 1998. To cut a long story short, he escaped to Tokyo to spend five years working for the largest English language publisher in Japan. "Carving out a career in the megalopolis that is Tokyo changed my outlook forever. When seeing life through such a kaleidoscopic lens, it's hard not to get truly caught up in the moment." On returning to the UK, after a few false starts with grey, corporate publishers, Rich was snapped up by Texere Publishing, where he spearheaded the editorial development of The Analytical Scientist. "I feel honored to be part of the close-knit team that forged The Analytical Scientist – we've created a very fresh and forward-thinking publication." Rich is now also Content Director of Texere Publishing, the company behind The Analytical Scientist.
