Join us for the third annual Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School. We are proud to have assembled world-leading experts in mass spectrometry for this three and a half-day course. Students will experience an engaging and inspiring program covering fundamentals of mass spectrometry and the latest in its application to the analyses of plants (NSF) and animals (NIH). Tutorial lectures include: Mass Analyzers, Ionization, Tandem MS, Chromatography, Shotgun Proteomics, Instrument Acquisition and Setup, Spectral Interpretation, and PTMs. Also planned are hands-on workshops for scientific and professional development.

There is no cost to participate. This event 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).

Opportunities to Participate

 

Opportunities to Participate

Present a Poster
The poster session will be held Monday afternoon 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.
