Advances in Measurement Science Lectureship Awards

LCGC North America

The ceremony begins at 8:30am in Room 126A.

A symposium for the second annual Advances in Measurement Science Lectureship Awards, presided over by Kimberly Agnew-Heard of Altraia Client Services, will be held on Wednesday morning. These awards are cosponsored by the journals ACS Sensors, Analytical Chemistry, and Journal of Proteome Research, and the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry. The awards honor the contributions of one individual from each of three geographic regions-the Americas, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and Asia Pacific-who have made a major recent impact in the field of measurement science.

This year, three individuals will be honored:

Charles S. Henry is a professor of chemistry at Colorado State University. His research interests are broadly in the areas of microfluidics and electrochemistry with application to questions in bioanalytical and environmental chemistry. He will give a talk on the rise of microfluidic paper-based analytical devices.

Chunhai Fan is a Shanghai Jiao Tong University chair professor and is also an associate editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. Fan has published nearly 300 papers on nucleic acid chemistry, biosensors, and bioimaging. His presentation is entitled, “Framework Nucleic Acids-Guided Molecular Sensing and Imaging.”

Ester H. Segal is an associate professor of Biotechnology and Food Engineering at the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology. She received her PhD in chemical engineering from Technion in 2004 and later trained at the University of California, San Diego, where she was a Rothschild postdoctoral fellow. She will discuss on-chip rapid diagnostic susceptibility testing of bacteria and fungi from clinical samples.

The symposium will also include three other talks. Steven Allan Soper of University of Kansas will discuss nanosensors for single-molecule sequencing. Yanyi Huang of Peking University will give a talk on error correction code sequencing and bit sequencing, and Michael Sailor of University of California, San Diego, will give a presentation on porous silicon-based nanostructures for optical detection of biochemical analytes.

The symposium begins at 8:30am in Room 126A.
