PhD Advanced Course Advanced Analytical Tools: Multiple Applications for Mass Spectrometry

Mass Spectrometry (MS) is an advanced analytical technique that has reached an outstanding position due to its unique characteristics: high selectivity, low detection limits, speed and a large diversity of applications. During the last two decades, MS has progressed rapidly through the advances on ionization methods and mass analyzers that have led to the advent of new equipment. This progress has allowed the development of new applications mostly oriented towards health promoting areas such as proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics, foodomics, drug discovery, pollution control and forensic and toxicological sciences. This course aims to give an overview on basic MS fundamentals and instrumentation highlighting several recent applications.

It will be covered by a variety of lecturers with different experience and know-how, most of them members of the Portuguese Mass Spectrometry Network (RNEM).


Who should attend?

 This course is intended for 1st year PhD students from FFUL. However, considering the increasing interest in mass spectrometry it is also offered to postgraduate students from FFUL or other academic institutions and industry participants.

The course will be delivered completely online through Zoom platform.
