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.

Though we admit that no list of this type can be definitive, it does clearly show that the future of our field is very bright indeed. And so, without further ado, we present (in alphabetical order) the analytical movers and shakers under 40, who prove what can be achieved with determination, passion – and inspiration.
