Quantitative Analysis Using Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS): Roy Goodacre, the 2021 winner of the Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy
September 02, 2021
Roy Goodacre, a professor of biological chemistry at the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom, first used SERS to achieve whole-organism fingerprinting of bacteria and then explored SERS in a variety of other applications, including within biotechnology, disease diagnostics, quantitative detection, imaging, food security, and more. Goodacre is the 2021 winner of the Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy. This interview is part of an ongoing series of interviews with the winners of awards that are presented at the annual SciX conference.
