Registration for the 3rd Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School will close on March 1.
This means time is running out to sign up for 4 free days of learning, tutorial lectures, and hands-on-workshops– all led by world-leading experts in mass spectrometry.
The goal of this event– which will take place from June 15-18 at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery– is to provide an engaging and inspiring program to students by combining networking, education and discovery and housing it all under one roof.
Specifically, this program covers the latest in application of mass spectrometry to omic analyses, from both industry and academic lenses. With tutorial lectures covering a variety of topics, from mass analyzers to lipidomics, and hands-on-workshops aimed at both scientific and professional development, this program is not one you would want to miss. Don’t forget to tell your peers about this excellent opportunity!

Join us for our third annual mass spectrometry summer school, which will be held in Madison, WI from June 15-18. 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 mass analyzers to the basics of data analysis. Also planned are several hands-on workshops – aimed at both scientific and professional development. This program 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.
Registration open through March 1, 2020: https://www.ncqbcs.com/resources/training/summer-school.
Please help us spread the word about this program by sharing the news with anyone who might have possible interest to participate.
See below for a list of expert instructors who will be leading the courses, as well as premium tutorial lectures and hands-on workshops that you can experience.

Registration for this opportunity closes on March 1.
Olga Vitek from Northeastern University delivered a tutorial lecture on Data Analysis at the NCQBCS first annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School in 2018.
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.

David Pagliarini of the Morgridge Institute for Research delivered a tutorial lecture on Experimental Design at the NCQBCS first annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School in 2018.
A key goal of the National Center for Quantitative Biology of Complex Systems is to extend its expertise to the broader scientific community. Therefore, NCQBCS offers hands-on-training programs ranging from basic basic proteomic methodology to advanced technological techniques.
NCQBCS, which works to develop next-generation protein measurement technologies for biomedical application, has programs available for a wide range of students. This means that there are introductory training programs available for those interested in learning the basics of mass spectrometry, as well as programs geared for experts on specific technologies.
NCQBCS divides its training topics into four broad categories: Sample Preparation, Instrumentation, Data Analysis, and Protein Quantification. Trainees can build their own syllabus of workshops from a variety of categories and experience levels.
Comprehensively, we offer programs in:
Sample Preparation: Peptide Fractionation, Protein Digestion, Protein extraction.
Mass Spectrometry: MS Methods, Instrument Troubleshooting, Nano-chromatography.
Data Analysis: Data Visualization, Data Interpretation, Data Searching.
Protein Quantification: Label-free, Metabolic labeling, Isobaric chemical labeling.
Additionally, one can also receive coaching at the 3rd Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School, which will take place June 15-18, 2020. This event, which will be hosted by international experts on Mass Spectrometry, will feature workshops, lectures and networking, among other activities.
One may find more information, as well as sign up for summer school, here.
