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.
Using microsampling to refine blood sampling procedures in industry and academia
5th July 2016
Central London. Venue details will be given to registered participants at least 1 week before the workshop
The NC3Rs is hosting a one-day workshop to support academic and industry researchers looking to implement microsampling (sampling methods which require =50µl of blood) to reduce and refine animal use.
The workshop will be held in Central London on 5 July 2016, and will bring together scientists from academia and industry to share their knowledge and experience of implementing microsampling approaches. The workshop will include case studies covering practical and 3Rs aspects of microsampling, along with facilitator-led breakout groups.
The range of applications using ion mobility mass spectrometry has enjoyed a dramatic increase over the past ten years, driven both by the advent of commercial instrumentation and the need for novel technologies for structural characterisation. A number of UK groups are focused on the development and application of ion mobility approaches, and many other research areas are starting to benefit from this form of analysis.
The 16th Nordic mass spectrometry conference will be held in Copenhagen in 2016. The conference takes place from September 27th to September 29th at “Lokomotivvćrkstedet” 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.

Data interpretation and analysis
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.
