The Second Annual International Mass Spectrometry School


The International School on Mass Spectrometry (IntSMS) returns in 2024, and it will take place on September 9–14th at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture (EMFCSC) in Erice, Italy.

This year, the second course will be dedicated to ion mobility–mass spectrometry (IM–MS). The course, titled “Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry: Fundamentals, Advances, and Applications,” is aimed to give students an introductory overview on the fundamentals of mass spectrometry (MS), discussing the instrumentation and applications in MS. The course is designed for post-doc, PhD, and graduate students, as well as those working in chemistry, biosciences, environmental science, medicine, and related applications interested in improving their knowledge of MS.

In the 21st century, MS has become more widely used, and despite the increased usage, instruction on how to work with MS instrumentation remains limited. The International School of Mass Spectrometry attempts to solve this issue by offering participants in their six-day course the opportunity to study MS closely and learn about how they could apply MS instrumentation in their own work.

The school will bring together participants from public and private research centers and industry and from academia. It serves to be an event that allows students and tutors from all over the world to form connections and to network with one another.
