Registration for the 3rd Annual Mass Spec Summer School Opens in January

Registration for the NCQBCS third annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School will open January 2, 2020.

The NAMSS summer school is an exciting opportunity for burgeoning scientists to network and learn from leading mass spectrometry experts in both plant and animal applications.

The summer school will take place in Madison, WI from June 15-18. A variety of activities, such as lectures and workshops, will be held.

Additionally, as a summer school student, you will be able to:

Present a Poster
The poster session will be held Monday afternoon (June 15th) with prizes awarded to the top entries.

Give a Flash Talk
Flash talks will be scheduled throughout the week. They are 5-minute, one-slide presentations of your work, a research question you want input on, or something else of interest you would like to ask or share with the group. Prizes awarded to the top talks.

Future Technology Discussion
The event will include a discussion titled “Future Technology Needs”, where we want to hear your ideas of what technology is missing in the current research environment that would help advance your work. This could be techniques, protocols, instrumentation capability, etc. These can be big or small ideas, realistic or just a dream.

Join World-Leading Experts for Morning Coffee and Q&A
Sign up for a morning session where you bring your questions and get help from the experts. Sessions are limited to 15 people and we request you submit a question in advance so we can come prepared for the discussion.

Tweet Your Thoughts and Ideas
Join in via twitter during the sessions.

2nd Summer School a Success

The 2nd Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School, which took place from July 21-24 at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, was a success.

The event’s goal was to encourage and stimulate a community of scientists who are interested in mass spectrometry, plants and human health. This included tutorial and research lectures, workshops and a poster viewing session. Topics ranged from data analysis, chromatography and PTMs, to data integration, intellectual property and spectral interpretation, among others.

Featured speakers included Joshua Coon from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Ulrike Kusebauch from the Institute for Systems Biology, Beatrix Ueberheide from the New York University School of Medicine, Lingjun Li from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Judit Villen from the University of Washington, and Evan Williams from the University of California-Berkley, among many others.

Summer School was followed by the 11th Annual MaxQuant Summer School, which took place from July 24-26 in the same location. Students were able to attend one or both events.

Next year’s summer school will take place June 15-18.

1st Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School

Please join us for our first annual mass spectrometry summer school. We are proud to have assembled over a dozen world leading experts in mass spectrometry for this four-day course. Our goal is to provide our students, both from academia and industry, an engaging and inspiring program covering the latest in the application of mass spectrometry to omic analyses. Tutorial lectures range from experimental design, sample preparation, and quantification to the basics of high performance mass analyzers and data analysis. Also planned are several hands-on workshops – aimed at both scientific and professional development. Finally, we will take a break on one afternoon for a whole group experience at nearby Devil’s Lake State Park where workshop goers can choose from a slate of exciting recreational activities. This workshop is made possible by generous funding from the National Science Foundation (Integrated Organismal Systems, Plant Genome Research Program, Grant No. 1546742) and the National Institutes of Health National Center for Quantitative Biology of Complex Systems (P41 GM108538). As such, there is no cost to participate and several travel awards are available.
