Symposium for users of Stanford mass spectrometry resources as well as those interested in finding out more about applications of the technology. The Mass Spec Users’ Meeting is an annual opportunity for Stanford and community scientists to meet, mingle, and learn about research resources and ongoing mass spec related research at Stanford.

Research presentations will cover advances in drug discovery, metabolomics, and proteomics. Workshops will address biostatistics; complementary applications of NMR and MS technologies; and antibodies in proteomics.

Featured this year:
  • Software help desk - live support for freely available mass spec software tools. Ask the experts your questions, get a personalized demo on tools including iLab, online databases with spectral data, and more.
  • Stanford research support - directors of many Stanford core resources will be on hand and available for discussion
