4th Annual Short Course on Imaging Mass Spectrometry

Vanderbilt University

April 13-16, 2015

This course is designed for mid-level to senior investigators who are familiar with MALDI and have a practical knowledge of mass spectrometry. The course will cover details of sample preparation, matrix application, practical instrumentation, and image and data processing. We will have two tutorial sessions on Monday, April 13 – one as an introduction to histology/microscopy for those new to tissue analysis and one as an introduction to basic MS principles and instruments. In addition, this year we will have a one day imaging symposium and expo, featuring a symposium series with external speakers who will give in-depth talks on various applications of IMS, vendor demonstrations, round-table discussions with the experts, and a closing reception. This will take place on Thursday, April 16 and will be part of the formal AIMS course. We are also offering a one-day only registration for those who may just be interested in the symposium and exposition.

More information can be found at our website: https://ims.mc.vanderbilt.edu/aims2015

Registration is now open and will stay open until March 31. Everyone registered before March 16 will receive the early registration rate of $699 and be entered into a drawing for a new iPad! We are aiming for 40 participants, and we already have several instrument vendors signed on as sponsors, including Bruker and Denator.

Mass Spectrometry in Biology and Medicine (MSBM) Summer School

This event is a non-profit program run by academics in Europe and the US. Specifically, this year we’ll host the 9th Edition of the MSBM Summer School which will be held again in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Current airfares are about $1800 round trip. This is an excellent program for new students who do not have experience in mass spectrometry. For example, on the first day of the school a full day of didactic lectures are presented along with a quiz. The students work on the quiz during the week with the lecturers, which helps them get going right away with hands on problem solving. They also have to give a 5 minute oral presentation of their research and present a poster. Lecturers and students all stay in the same dorm which helps with interactions. The rest of week is a mixed bag of research and didactic lectures from top people in their respective areas. For a list of this year’s faculty please see http://www.msbm.org/Home.html

Registration is inexpensive (http://www.msbm.org/Registration.html) and the dorm is also inexpensive (http://www.msbm.org/Venue_%26_Housing.html) but very nice. Faculty also on occasion attend.
