The Eastern Analytical Symposium celebrated its 30th anniversary in November, 2013 at Somerset, NJ. This is an excellent scientific meeting for pharmaceutical scientists, especially those on the East Coast. With a theme this year of ‘Analytical In Motion’, there were symposia, posters, short courses and an exposition. This Symposium has a unique character to it, in part due to the regional nature of the meeting and its relatively affordable cost. Since the meeting is more manageable in size than some of the major, national meetings, attendees feel more comfortable in attending the sessions and asking questions. Hope to see you next year at EAS!
