BioZone’s Mass Spectrometry Facility is holding our annual meeting for current and future users. The aims of this meeting are:

  1.  to provide users with information on the latest techniques and methods the facility is capable of performing,
  2. and to determine what sample prep techniques and analysis tools our users are interested in having access to.

Planned presentations:

  • Keynote Address: Metabolomics for enzyme discovery – Dr. Amy Caudy, University of Toronto
  • Differential analysis of mass spectrometry data for metabolomics and small molecule approaches – Robert Flick, BioZone MS Metabolomics Specialist
  • What are you missing in your metabolome…the orbitrap MS perspective – Amanda Souza, Thermofisher
  • Success stories – Short presentations from HQP on successful projects using the MS facility

The meeting will conclude with a User Forum to discuss emerging trends, new technologies, and new protocol development, followed by a tour of the BioZone Mass Spectrometry Facility.

Students will also have a Q&A session with our experts to find out how the facility can help their projects.
