Pittcon: Mixing the old and the new

After attending the Biophysical Society Meeting in Boston last week, I am now in Chicago at the annual Pittcon meeting. For those of you do not know about Pittcon, the focus of the conference is on technology development for the fields of biology, analytical chemistry, and nanotechnology. Being so broad it should come as no surprise to learn attendance is usually quite large – around 17,000 attendees are here now. This year sessions have included advances in mass spectrometry, in vivo imaging, nanotechnology sensors and surfaces, vibrational spectroscopy, biofuels, nanomedicine, magnetic resonance and biomarker discovery/analysis along with an exhibit hall requiring a tram to move people between sections (more below).
