About the WBMSDG
The Greater Washington-Baltimore Mass Spectrometry Discussion Group meets monthly from September through June to discuss various aspects of mass spectrometry.
Meetings are usually held on the third Monday of each month (see schedule) at the Shimadzu Regional Training Center in Columbia, MD (see below for directions) at 7:30 pm. Our meetings usually involve a lecture by an expert in the field of mass spectrometry and its related sciences from the area or outside the area.
Members of the group include research scientists and students from local government, academic and industrial laboratories.
The Washington-Baltimore MSDG also conducts a short course entitled “Interpretation of Mass Spectra” each year at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry Meeting. Members of the discusion group serve as instructors for the course.
Topics of interest to the MSDG include, but are not limited to:
Instrumentation: Design and Implementation
Mass Separation Methods
Fundamental Processes Important in Mass Spectrometry
Desorption and Ionization of Molecules
Activation and Fragmentation of Molecules
Fundamental Studies Using Mass Spectrometry
Analytical Applications of Mass Spectrometry in:
