The 59th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics will be held on 5–9 June 2011 in Denver, Colorado, USA. The conference and short courses will be held at the Colorado Convention Centre, alongside the oral sessions, poster sessions and exhibition.
The event is being sponsored by the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS), which was formed in 1969 to promote and disseminate knowledge of mass spectrometry and allied topics. Their interests include advancement of techniques and instrumentation in mass spectrometry, as well as fundamental research in chemistry, geology, forensics, biological sciences and physics.
This annual conference is attended by more than 6500 scientists, and nearly 3000 papers are presented as posters and talks.
Tutorial lectures will being on Sunday 5 June, and will be followed on Monday through Thursday with full programme days of concurrent oral sessions, poster sessions and workshops.
The tutorial lectures will begin with Good Mass Spectrometry and its Place in Good Science: Sometimes Close Enough Is Really Not Good Enough presented by Mark W. Duncan of the University of Colorado Denver Health Science Centre. In this example-driven talk the central role of both the mass spectrometer and mass spectrometrist in basic science, industry and medicine are illustrated.
LC and MS: A Match Made in Heaven will be presented by James Jorgenson of the University of North Carolina. This lecture will look at the combination of liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry and strategies that can help bring them together in harmony.
Oral sessions between Monday and Thursday include Protein Therapeutics in Drug Discovery and Development: LC–MS Quantification; Challenges in Quantitative Bioanalysis in a Regulated Environment for Biomarkers; Unknown Environmental Contaminants: Advanced Mass Spectrometry Technologies; Small Molecule Drug Discovery: Advances in Micro- and Nano-flow Separations; PK Assays: Novel Approaches to Increase LC–MS Throughput; Reactive Metabolites: Novel LC–MS Detection Methods; Biomarker Analyses and Metabolomics in Drug Discovery and Biomarkers of Drug/Metabolite Toxicity: LC–MS Methods.
Two awards will be presented during the event: The Award for a Distinguished Contribution in Mass Spectrometry recognizes a focused, singular achievement in or contribution to fundamental or applied mass spectrometry, in contrast to awards that recognize lifetime achievement. The Biemann Medal recognizes a significant achievement in basic or applied mass spectrometry made by an individual early in his or her career. The award is presented in honour of Professor Klaus Biemann whose lasting legacy is the training of students and postdoctoral associates over a 40 year period at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The programme ends with another plenary lecture; titled Why Are We Surprised by Only Some of the Things that We See? Visual Illusions, the Brain, and Baseball by Arthur Shapiro of the American University. Professor Shapiro, a neuroscientist and award-winning creator of visual illusions, will present recently developed visual illusions and discuss the implications of our perceptive (in)abilities.
