Analytical Chemistry 2018

LabRoots announces a new addition to our virtual conference line up for 2018, Analytical Chemistry! The field of analytical chemistry is focused on advancements in experimental design, chemometrics, and the creation of new analytical instrumentation. Analytical chemistry has broad applications into forensics, environmental testing, pharmacological developments, material science and engineering.

Join us for this free, two-day event as we discuss best practices in testing, chromatography, centrifugation, as well as developments in chemical analysis and mass spectroscopy. Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global analytical chemistry community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

The first annual Analytical Chemistry Event will include topics such as:

  • Hyperspectral Imaging applications
  • Chemical Sensors & Detectors
  • FT-IR
  • Microfluidics in regards to lab-on-a-chip
  • Nanofluidics
  • Sensors
  • Biomimetics

 

Call for Speakers We are always looking to feature excellent research during our virtual events. If you’re working on some remarkable breakthroughs and would like to submit a speaker or panel for consideration, please submit your abstract here.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2018 Analytical Chemistry Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here

  • Luke Arbogast, PhD
    Research Chemist, Macromolecular Structure and Function Group, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
    Biography
      Luke W. Arbogast is a Research Chemist in the Biomolecular Measurement Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). His current research focuses on the development and application of state-of-the-art two-dimensional NMR methods to characterize the structure of protein therapeutics. These methods are of particular interest to the biopharmaceutical industry where structural comparability studies are necessary for drug development, drug-quality testing and the benchmarking biosimilars against innovator reference products. In 2016, Luke received the Department of Commerce Silver Award for his work in this area. Prior to his current role at NIST, Luke was a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research in Rockville, Md. Luke received his B.S. in Chemistry from Virginia Commonwealth University and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Johns Hopkins University.
    • Giuseppe Bonifazi
      Full Professor, University of Rome "La Sapienza"
    • Christopher Chouinard, PhD
      Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering and Sciences (BCES), Florida Institute of Technology
      Biography
        Dr. Chouinard was born and raised in the small town of Grafton, MA. His interests in chemistry and biology brought him south, where he attended University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!) and furthered his passion for analytical chemistry. After briefly working as a project manager for a contract research lab back in Massachusetts, Chris pursued his Ph.D. at the University of Florida. There, Chris worked under world renowned mass spectrometrist Rick Yost, and was responsible for integrating drift tube-ion mobility spectrometry (DTIMS) into the Yost lab. Chris's interests at UF involved IM-MS studies of clinical molecules (steroids, Vitamin D metabolites) and he also received grant funding through the Partnership for Clean Competition to develop novel IM-MS methods for improved identification of anabolic androgenic steroids in athletes. After graduating from UF, Chris traveled to the opposite corner of the country to engage in a prestigious post-doctoral position at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, WA. While working with Dick Smith, another world leader in mass spectrometry, Chris designed and developed a Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulations (SLIM) platform that enabled the first integration of LC into the SLIM IM-MS pipeline for improved analysis in phosphoproteomics. Chris joined the faculty at Florida Tech in the summer of 2018 and will continue his work in ion mobility-mass spectrometry. Current projects involve improved methods for metabolomics and lipidomics with gas-phase chemistry.
