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 Focus

  • Main focus: Fundamentals of Imaging Mass Spectrometry instruments and sources, sample preparation from cells to tissues, and imaging of specific analyte classes.
  • The workshop will not focus on advanced imaging data analysis although we will provide resources in lecture slides and contacts for data analysis
  • The workshop may be entirely virtual or in-person 

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

  • Mass spectrometry resources available for imaging mass spectrometry
  • Key concepts of sample preparation for microbes, cells, organoids
  • Strategies for imaging mass spectrometry of specific analytes
