Advances in Clinical and Forensic Analysis 2018
27th Nov 2018
Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BA (UK)
After the success of the previous Advances in Clinical Analysis meetings, the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Separation Science Group and the Chromatographic Society are very pleased to announce Advances in Clinical and Forensic Analysis 2018, to be held on Tuesday 27th November 2018 at the RSC’s Burlington House venue in London.
Clinical and forensic analysis together cover some of the most exciting and important topics in the life sciences, and this meeting will provide insights into the latest methodologies and technological developments across these application areas. The meeting will focus on separation and complementary/alternative techniques, along with case studies from the hospital, commercial and academic areas. The programme has been designed to give attendees an update for both routine and problem solving in clinical and forensic analysis, and includes talks from established experts and emerging professionals, including Prof Leon Barron (King’s College London), Dr Melanie Bailey (University of Surrey), Dr Gordon Ross (Agilent Technologies) and Dr Joost Brandsma (University of Southampton), amongst others. This year, the meeting will also celebrate the career and achievements of Prof David Perrett, the keynote speaker.
Advances in Clinical and Forensic Analysis 2018 will also provide attendees with a unique means of sharing real experiences with other professionals and will provide excellent networking opportunities. This should be a highly interesting and well-attended event, with registration (now open) and further information available here. Poster abstracts will be accepted till the 11th of November.

Challenges in Analysis of Complex Natural Mixtures – Faraday Discussion
Most naturally occurring systems can be characterised as complex mixtures. The focus of this Faraday Discussion is on mixtures of small molecules:
environmental matrices such as soil, dissolved organic matter, organic molecules contained in atmospheric aerosol particles, or crude oil; biofluids; and man-made mixtures of small molecules such as food, beverages or plant extracts. The techniques best positioned to tackle such mixtures experimentally include mass spectrometry, chromatography, NMR spectroscopy, or new alternative techniques, including combinations of the above methods.
Dealing with Complexity
Data Mining and Visualisation
Future Challenges and New Approaches
Faraday Discussions have a special format where research papers written by the speakers are distributed to all participants before the meeting, and most of the meeting is devoted to discussing the papers. Everyone contributes to the discussion - including presenting their own relevant research. The research papers and a record of the discussion are published in the journal Faraday Discussions.
27 August 2018 – Oral abstract deadline
