Jonathan V. Sweedler, a professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois, and the 2015 ANACHEM Award winner, has focused his group’s major research efforts on analytical neurochemistry, developing new measurement tools to characterize small-volume samples for their cell–cell signaling molecules, and applying these technologies to the study of the distribution and dynamic release of neuropeptides, classical transmitters, and other cell–cell signaling molecules from the brain.

Tea is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world and needs to be protected from changing climate conditions as much as possible. Amanda Kowalsick and Albert Robbat of the Department of Chemistry at Tufts University, Massachusetts, USA, are working to understand how vulnerable the metabolites in tea are to climate conditions. They recently spoke to LCGC about their work with tea and natural products.
