This past October, Jim Lawrence (PhD Chemistry, 72) attended the opening of a new liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) facility at the CEFAS (Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science) algal toxin analysis laboratory in Weymouth, UK. It was a particularly happy event for him as they named the lab the “Lawrence Centre for Mass Spectrometry” (LC-MS) in honour of his work with CEFAS 15 years ago that led to the elimination of live animal testing for shellfish toxins in the UK, the first country to do so. The day was filled with meeting staff, a tour of the labs, discussing research and a number of presentations on the latest algal toxin research projects.
