In recent years, the field of biomolecular mass spectrometry has grown rapidly through the introduction of various new methods. The course aims to give an overview of the present state-of-the-art in Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry, highlighting several recent applications in chemistry, pharmacy, biology and medicine. Basic fundamentals and instrumentation will not be overlooked.
Date: Sep 22-26, 2014
Target audience: The course is meant for those who wish to learn about the new developments in mass spectrometry and how they may contribute to their own area of research. Additionally, the course is also meant for active mass spectrometrists who want to update or broaden their knowledge in the area of biomedical applications.
Program: The intensive course will be given in one full week. A variety of lecturers will cover a diverse array of fundamentals and applications. The course will be informal with ample time for discussion and questions. Via lab-tours and interaction with the researchers, participants will get an opportunity to survey state-of-the-art instrumentation and several examples of biomolecular mass spectrometric analysis. To encourage group interactions, the number of participants is limited. A course manual will be provided. For topics, see the course website.
