A lecture based course detailing an overview of metabolic phenotyping including the use of NMR spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry, with insights from the experts at Imperial College and collaborators from all over the world. Lectures will cover data acquisition and analysis with some advanced statistical workshops for more hands-on participation for attendees. There will also be examples of real life applications from the research at Imperial College and their collaborators.
Registration followed by session 1 which will cover an analytical technology (either NMR or MS) for metabolic profiling. A laboratory tour of the facilities will follow.
Session 2 will cover the alternative analytical technique (NMR / MS) and will be followed by session 3 which will introduce the theory to statistical analysis.
Session 4 covers the more advanced chemometrics, such as OPLS and O2PLS and includes hands-on workshops. Session 5 will introduce metabolite identification in both NMR and MS and also cover some tips and tricks to avoid common pitfalls.
The final day will cover some of the real life applications of NMR and MS for metabolic phenotyping.
This 4 day course provides a comprehensive overview of data analysis for metabolic profiling studies with data acquired from NMR spectroscopy and Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry. It combines lectures and tutorial sessions to ensure a thorough understanding of the theory and practical applications.
Introductory lectures and tutorials regarding the pre-processing of data acquired via NMR and LC-MS.
Lectures and tutorials introducing exploratory chemometrics approaches, including PCA.
Lectures and tutorials covering advanced chemometrics techniques including PLS and Orthogonal PLS.
The next step - computational tools to aid metabolite identification and pathway analysis.
EU based graduate students can receive credit at their home institution for completely an examination given during the week on the fundamentals of MS. More details including registration, travel and program is available here.
The 16th Nordic mass spectrometry conference will be held in Copenhagen in 2016. The conference takes place from September 27th to September 29th at “Lokomotivværkstedet” and will be part of the Scandinavian exhibition for laboratories “LABmed 2016”.
The scope of the conference is to provide a forum to encourage the exchange of ideas about recent research and state-of-the-art knowledge in the main areas of mass spectrometry including fundamentals, quantification, organic and biological analysis, instrumentation and applications. International invited speakers will give plenary lectures to present recent progress in these fields of mass spectrometry. All participants are invited to submit an abstract of work to be presented at the conference. Your abstract should emphasize the originality of the work.
An important objective for our 16th Nordic Conference in Mass Spectrometry is to strengthen the MS relations in our Nordic countries such that both social connections and professional ones are made. The conference serves as a meeting place for everyone involved in the field of Mass Spectrometry.
Attracting experts working in all areas of mass spectrometry, including MALDI-TOF, ionisation techniques, MS imaging, sample preparation, high-throughput techniques and data interpretation, the conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and methods being used for progressing medical research in areas such as disease diagnostics, metabolomics, proteomics, drug discovery, virology and genomics. The challenges and possibilities of mass spectrometry will also be examined.
The conference will provide an interactive networking forum to answer your queries through a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions, networking breaks allowing interaction with your peers, expert led case study presentations, and interactive Q&A panel discussions examining key issues over two days in areas of instrumentation and technology in mass spectrometry, as well as real life case studies and applications in medical research.

The agenda for this conference is currently in production, and is scheduled to be released in spring 2016
This meeting, organsied by The Chromatographic Society and the Separation Science Group, Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry, provides an insight into the latest methodologies and technological developments for clinical applications, in particular the application of phenotyping and biomarkers and the wide utilisation of mass spectrometry in clinical analysis. Clinical analysis is a wide-ranging subject area and as we move to more complex and difficulat clinical analysis the methodologies are being challenged in terms of their specificity, sensitivity and also the suitability for high throughput and lower cost analysis.
The meeting will focus on separation and complementary/alternative techniques along with case studies from the hospital and academic areas. The program has been designed to give attendees and update for both routine and problem solving in clinical analysis. The meeting will focus on the perspectives within the wider area of clinical analysis.
