Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
The Pittcon Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the details of the 2014 James L. Waters Annual Symposium, “MALDI-TOF." This year’s symposium recognizes the commercialization of MALDI-TOF. The speakers chosen are pioneers in its development and commercialization and are uniquely qualified to discuss the topic.
The presenters (listed below) will also discuss the current state of the technique and its future. Application areas include genomics, proteomics and other ‘omics; biomedical; biotechnology; and bioanalytical.
The symposium speakers and their session titles are as follows:
Peter Roepstorff, University of Southern Denmark, Franz Hillenkamp, University of Muenster, “Peptide and Protein Mass Spectrometry Before MALDI and ESI, the Pioneering Period”
Marvin Vestal, Virgin Instrument Corporation, “Development of TOF-MS from Intellectual Curiosity to Practical Technique”
Richard Caprioli, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, “MALDI Imaging Mass Spectrometry: A Next Generation Molecular Mapping Technology for Biological and Clinical Research”
When asked to comment on his research, Dr. Capriolli explained, "We have developed laser-based Imaging MS for the molecular mapping of biologically and medically relevant molecules in tissues. Areas of special interest involve the molecular mapping of changes observed in diabetes in both a mouse model and in human disease, and the molecular identification of both benign and metastatic skin lesions from patient biopsies. "
Randall Nelson, Arizona State University, “Using High Throughput Mass Spectrometric Immunoassay (MSIA) in Biomarker Development”
Franz Hillenkamp, University of Muenster, TBA
This informative session will take place during Pit
