Upcoming Event: What Mass Spectrometry can do for you, 18th March 2019, University of Edinburgh

The TEAMS (The Edinburgh Association of Mass Spectrometrists) symposium is designed for researchers to find out where, who and how Mass Spectrometry can help your research, by hearing case studies and meeting the experts. Registration is free for all UoE staff and students. Active areas of research include Proteomics, Clinical Targeted Analysis, Metabolomics, Lipidomics and Imaging Mass Spectrometry. Further details can be found here.

Past Event: “High resolution tailored metabolomics in health related and environmental research” by Prof. Phillippe Schmitt-Kopplin – 14thNovember 2018, Edinburgh

As part of the 2018/2019 EaStChem Colloquia the lecture will be held on Wednesday 14th November 2018 at 2 pm, Lecture Theatre 100, School of Chemistry, Joseph Black Building, KB, Edinburgh. The abstract of his talk can be found here.

Prof Schmitt-Kopplin is the Director of the Research Unit “Analytical BioGeoChemistry” of the HMGU – Helmholtz Zentrum München, Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Gesundheit und Umwelt in Neuherberg/Munich Germany, with a research focus in metabolomics and de novo biomarker discovery / analytical chemistry in projects in the field of Health and Environment.
