Ten years of bliss: The scientific ABCs of unite and conquer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (ABC) was launched to address the need for dissemination of cutting-edge analytical, biological and environmental research in partnership with European chemical societies. Now, several years later, a need has been created by a changing world which has seen the rise of countries such as China, India, and Brazil. A more concerted effort, or a 'unite and conquer' approach, has emerged, whether voluntarily or out of need. The pressing need for resourcefulness in terms of stretching the available funds to the maximum has resulted in successful strategies for many investigators and research institutions. The Gates Foundation is funding projects by scientists throughout the world to develop new diagnostics for widespread diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis, and new vaccines and delivery systems for infectious diseases. Added benefits of the unite and conquer approach for the teams of investigators involved in problem solving include personal, cultural, and professional growth for each team member involved in the effort.
