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.

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.

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.
