Short-bite sized articles highlighting how chemistry, and in particular chemical measurement, impacts on our everyday lives. We will discuss some of our latest research and demonstrate how we apply our research to ensure 'Science for a safer world'.

Short-bite sized articles from Science@LGC highlighting how chemistry, and in particular chemical measurement, impacts on our everyday lives. We will discuss some of our latest research and
demonstrate how we apply our research to ensure 'Science for a safer world'.

Over the coming months we’ll be telling you about some of our most exciting research, as well as enlightening you about what goes on behind the scenes in our forensics teams, highlighting some of the cases solved through our unique Government Chemist function, as well as discussing cutting edge research from other teams across LGC.

Here are a few of the topics we’ll be discussing:

  • A tasty portion of nanoparticles – could this be the future of our food?
  • Selenium in the fight against cancer
  • The use of animal DNA to solve crimes
  • Ensuring food safety through allergen detection
  • Digital and document forensics

You don’t need to be a researcher or working in a particular scientific field to understand these articles. Science@LGC is about science, being passionate about science and showing how we can all benefit from chemistry.

We welcome your comments and feedback as well as suggestions for topics you would like to find out more about.
