Distributing the technical expertise housed within the NCQBCS to the broader community is a vital function of the center. We have created a variety of options for all levels of learners with programs ranging from how to get started in mass spectrometry to technology specific expert training.    

Training – more info

Researchers from across the nation are invited to visit the NCQBCS to learn about biological mass spectrometry and related skills that can then be implemented at their own institutions. Visitors will work directly with our staff on a variety of topics of their interest.  Example topics include the development of experimental strategies, the preparation of biological samples, the implementation of liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) instrumentation, mass spectrometer repair, the utilization of informatics tools for the analysis of proteomics data, among many others.
