3rd Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School
June 29 – July 1, 2021 Virtual
Join us for our third annual mass spectrometry summer school. We are proud to have assembled over a dozen world leading experts in mass spectrometry for this three-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 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. 2010789) and the National Institutes of Health National Center for Quantitative Biology of Complex Systems (P41 GM108538). As such, there is no cost to participate.

Telling your science story
In collaboration with the Skyline team at University of Washington, the Duke Proteomics and Metabolomics Shared Resource will host a new Skyline Short Course this fall (Sept 17-21) at the newly renovated Chesterfield Building in downtown Durham, NC. The only week-long Skyline short course in the Southeast, Skyline@Duke will cover peptide and small molecule quantification from discovery (MS1 and DIA) workflows as well as the fundamentals and practical application of targeted quantification. Additionally, this course offers guest lectures from experts in the fields of targeted quantification, translational medicine, clinical biomarker quantification, ion mobility mass spectrometry, and small molecule quantification in Skyline. Attendees should expect to leave with a working knowledge of using Skyline in a variety of peptide and small molecule quantification applications.
The application deadline for the course is June 22nd. Course agenda, instructors and registration information can be found at https://skyline.ms/2018-duke-course.url.
The 1st Annual North American Mass Spectrometry Summer School is being held on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
While many participants are anticipated to be graduate students or postdocs, anyone interested in learning more about mass spectrometry is encouraged to apply.
Please keep in mind as you continue, that the following application only shows your interest in participating in the Summer School. Once completed, the Organizers will consider all applications and accept students on a rolling basis.
Deadline to Apply: April 1st
The UMBC proteomics/mass spectrometry facility is hosting a hands-on workshop on mass spectrometry tools for proteomics. The workshop is taking place February, 25-27 and will center on the facility nanoLC-MS system. Participants will learn underling theory of mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography and protein database searching approaches. The hands-on training on the instrument operation will supplement theory.

Topic: Discrimination of microorganisms by MALDI-TOF MS
Abstract: Unambiguous identification of microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi is essential for effective surveillance and treatment of disease. Unfortunately, diagnosis by classical microbiological methods often requires lengthy culture procedures or subjective micro-and macroscopic evaluations. To stem the spread of disease, rapid procedures for the accurate identification of microorganisms are necessary. To that end, we have been developing mass spectrometry-based tools for the analysis of bacteria and fungi.
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF-MS) can be used to generate highly reproducible, characteristic “fingerprint” mass spectra. These “fingerprint” mass spectra may be reduced to a subset of significant mass-to-charge values through statistical tools and compared against a reference library. Using this technique, microorganisms can be easily identified at the species and strain level with error rates approaching zero.
