BMSS Single Cell MS SIG Meeting 2024

Join us for the first ever BMSS single cell 1-Day meeting on the 10th of July 2024 in Surrey, UK!

Single cell mass spectrometry encompasses a growing number of sampling approaches (e.g. mass spectrometry imaging, capillary sampling, microfluidics and laser capture microdissection) and analytes (lipids, metabolites, proteins, drugs, elements). These approaches have huge potential to unlock new understanding of biological systems, and have shared challenges regarding standardisation, sensitivity, selectivity and sample integrity.  We have established a new BMSS special interest group in single cell mass spectrometry, to connect researchers working on single cell mass spectrometry technologies and applications and to share best practise in this rapidly advancing field.

This year, we will host the meeting in conjunction with the user group meeting of the BBSRC SEISMIC facility for spatially resolved single and sub-cellular omics (  This will promote interaction between the user community in biology and the mass spectrometry community.


This meeting will showcase the latest research and technical advances in single cell mass spectrometry. This year our Plenary Speakers are Professor Morgan Alexander (University of Nottingham) on Orbi SIMS (single cell imaging using mass spectrometry) and Dr Ed Emmott (University of Liverpool, UK) on single cell proteomics.


The BMSS Single Cell Mass Spectrometry SIG cannot function without the generous support of our sponsors & exhibitors. You can register to exhibit on the Exhibitor page, and we warmly invite you to contact the organisers ( if you would like to discuss sponsoring the meeting.


Qualifying BMSS members are eligible to apply for the society’s various BMSS Grants for assistance with meeting participation.
