Summer School Registration Closes Soon

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!

3rd Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School Registration Open

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 Mass Spec Summer School by telling your colleagues and friends who might benefit from attending. 

Registration for this opportunity closes on March 1.

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.

NCQBCS Offers Broad Range of Training Programs for all Levels of Learners

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.

More information on our training programs are located here, and one can sign up for training here.

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.

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.
