Skyline targeted proteomics course

Welcome to the event page for the Skyline Targeted Proteomics Course at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB).


Following publication by Public Health England (16-MAR-20) of their COVID-19 Guidance for Mass Gatherings, The University of Manchester has suspended all face-to-face teaching and has closed all of its non-essential sites from 17:00 GMT on 17-MAR-20. As a consequence we have decided to CANCEL the Skyline Course scheduled for 29-JUN-20 to 03-JUL-20. All registered delegates will have their fees refunded in full by the end of March.

The Skyline Course will not be rescheduled within 2020. We plan to evaluate options to reschedule in spring 2021. Information on our future plans will be posted on this website and through the BMSS mailing list. To receive direct updates please send an expression of interest to:

Thank you for your understanding!
