Analytical science has an enormous impact on our lives, serving to safeguard our food, environment, and medicines and enabling breakthroughs in other scientific disciplines; yet it does not always receive the same recognition and attention awarded to other scientific fields. This new award shines a spotlight on these scientists and celebrates their contributions to the betterment of humankind.
