Scientific Frontiers and Career Paths in Mass Spectrometry Workshops

Saturday, May 27, 2017 and Sunday, May 28, 2017
08:00-17:00
Metro Toronto Convention Centre (North Building), Room 205B

Supported by the MS-ESE NSERC CREATE Program.

Academic Workshop - "Scientific Horizons for Mass Spectrometry in Academia"

This workshop will bring international academic leaders in mass spectrometry-enabled science to give their take on the scientific frontiers of mass spectrometry. What are the most important questions in the field? What are the most promising new applications of mass spectrometry? These questions and more will be explored in a relaxed atmosphere forum with a plethora of chances for networking and interacting with speakers. The event will culminate in a panel discussion on "Future Careers in Mass Spectrometry-Enabled Science".

Industrial Workshop - "Scientific Horizons for Mass Spectrometry in Industry" 

This workshop will bring industrial leaders in mass spectrometry-enabled science to give their take on the scientific frontiers of mass spectrometry in industry. Where is mass spectrometry gaining ground as an industrial analytical tool? What are the future industrial applications of mass spectroetry? These questions and more will be explored in a relaxed atmosphere forum with a plethora of chances for networking and interacting with speakers from Sanofi Pasteur, Apotex, Sciex, Waters, Fluidigm and Perkin Elmer among many others. The event will culminate in a panel discussion on "Career Trends in Mass Spectrometry in Industry".

These workshops are being offered to all CSC participants at a fee of $25.00 each and made possible with funding from the "Mass Spectrometry-Enabled Science and Engineering" NSERC CREATE Training Program.

Registration for these two events will begin in December.
