A grand challenge of bioanalytical chemistry is to build upon the explosively growing knowledge learned from quantitative and instrumental analysis, to integrate it into the extremely demanding chemistry curriculum, and to facilitate student learning by making connection between a variety of subdisciplines in science and technology. The authors are selected from the presenters in these symposia as well as invited experts in teaching bioanalytical chemistry at college and universities in the United States. Due to the exceedingly rapid development and multidisciplinary nature, teaching bioanalytical chemistry suffered drastically from the relatively limited resources. In this talk, I will share with you about the recent innovations in bioanalytical chemistry education, which has been summarized in an ACS symposium book. This ACS symposium book is written in thirteen chapters by twenty-eight dedicated experts in the field of bioanalytical chemistry education in colleges and universities. These teaching innovations have been completely tested in the chemistry classroom and laboratory. The organization of the book provides a list of unconventional and effective teaching approaches to address most of the typical bioanalytical techniques. The ACS symposium book may provide valuable information and practical innovations in teaching bioanalytical chemistry and enrich the chemistry curriculum for educators of the two-year community colleges, four-year colleges and universities at undergraduate and graduate level.
