ASMS Wednesday Afternoon Workshops and Awards

June 3, 2020

On Wednesday afternoon from 12:00 - 1:30 pm CDT, seven workshops will be presented. An Award Session (live webinar) will start at 1:45 pm with Richard A. Yost, presiding.

On Wednesday afternoon from 12:00 to 1:30 pm CDT,  seven workshops will be presented on the following topics:

  • Wed-07 IM-MS technology in the Industry - Barriers and Opportunities, Presided by Jakub Ujma, Ian Webb, and Kelly Hines.  Following short (5 min) presentations, this session will take the form of a panel discussion. This discussion will uncover issues that currently impede wider adoption of IM-MS, such as cost, the complexity of underlying physical phenomena, instrument ease-of-use, performance as well as challenges related to available software packages and data analysis.

  • Wed-08 Building PUI / R1 Connections: A Win-Win for Both, Presiders will be Jay Forsythe and Kate Stumpo. This workshop will provide networking opportunities for faculty at primarily undergraduate (PUI) institutions and faculty at PhD-granting (R1) institutions. 

  • Wed-09 Data Independent Acquisition: Quo vadis? Presiders will be Birgit Schilling and Florian Meier. In this workshop, the presiders have invited experts in the field of data independent acquisition (DIA) to discuss technological and software innovations, as well as promising biological and medical applications. The open format should engage discussions about unique challenges, but also opportunities for future developments.

  • Wed-10 New Aspects in the Development of Multi-Attribute Method (MAM), Presided by Hao Zhang, Rich Rogers, and Da Ren. In the past of decade, liquid chromatography (LC)-mass spectrometry (MS)-based Multi-Attribute Method (MAM) has successfully demonstrated its capability in replacing traditional chromatographic and electrophoretic testing methods for monitoring both product and process quality attributes (Rogers et al., AAPS J, 2017). This biotherapeutic interest group workshop offers a forum for members to share and discuss those new aspects in the development of MAM.

  • Wed-11 Photoionization - Between Vacuum and Atmospheric Pressure, Presiders are Matthias Lorenz, Luke Hanley, and Sven Ehlert. Two experts in the areas of vacuum and atmospheric pressure photoionization will introduce their respective work to illustrate the diversity of techniques that are combined under the topic of photoionization mass spectrometry. This year's workshop, will offer a time for discussion of applications challenges.

  • Wed-12 The Role of the International Lipidomics Society, Presiders will be Kim Ekroos and Michal Holcapek. This workshop aims to introduce the newly founded International Lipidomics Society (ILS) and discuss its role in the lipidomics and connecting communities. The workshop will be designed to introduce the ILS flagship that aims to foster international community-wide coordination and communication for the creation of lipidomics specific guidelines for good scientific practice.

  • Wed-13 Top Down Proteomics and Top Down Mass Spectrometry: Adoption and Expanding Applications, Presided by Frederik Lermyte and Joe Cannon. This workshop will showcase talks from experts in both industry and academia in TD mass spectrometry and TD proteomics to propagate utilization of the technique across disciplines. The emphasis in this workshop will lie in education, practical instruction, and utilization of TD proteomics and TDMS, with the goal of constructive discussion for both novices and experts.

From 1:45 to 3:00 pm CDT an  Award Session (live webinar) will be given with Richard A. Yost, presiding. At 1:45 pm the presentation of Research Awards and Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUI) Research Award will take place; and at 2:00 to 2:30 pm and Award Lecture for the Biemann Medal is scheduled.
