The goal of this workshop is to instruct a general scientific audience with little to advanced mass spectrometry expertise on concepts of MALDI imaging mass spectrometry experiments. The program will use a combination of instruction on instrumentation, sample preparation, and analyte analyses with lectures from teaching experts on each topic.

Workshop Objectives

  • Learn the state-of-the-art technology used in MALDI Imaging MS Research
  • Learn the sample preparation techniques used by the experts for analysis of cells to tissues to arrays
  • Discover approaches for targeted imaging of specific analytes from pioneers on the topic
  • Understand resources available for image data analysis

At the end of the course, the participants should have a good understanding of:

  • Mass spectrometry instrumentation MALDI imaging mass spectrometry
  • Key concepts of sample preparation from cells to tissue to arrays
  • Strategies for imaging mass spectrometry of specific analytes
  • Knowledge of resources available for imaging data analysis
