On Thursday morning in the ASMS 2020 Reboot event, eight workshops will be held, on the NIH and NSF review and funding process, automated proteomics sample preparation, cannabis and hemp analysis, mass spectrometry research and education in the developing world, the proteomics standards initiative, MS for process analytical technology, career opportunities for Chinese scientists, and polymer architecture.

On Thursday morning in the ASMS 2020 Reboot event, eight workshops will be held, on the NIH and NSF review and funding process, automated proteomics sample preparation, cannabis and hemp analysis, mass spectrometry research and education in the developing world, the proteomics standards initiative, MS for process analytical technology, career opportunities for Chinese scientists, and polymer architecture. All sessions will be held from 10:00 to 11:30 am CDT, and are as follows:

  • The NIH and NSF Review and Funding Process. Presiders will be Salvatore Sechi, Douglas Sheeley, and Kelsey Cook. This workshop will present the general funding and review process of grant applications and proposals for National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF) grants. Issues like identifying the best contacts, writing an effective application or proposal, and responding to the reviewers' criticisms will be discussed.

  • Advances in Automation for Proteomics Sample Preparation. Presiders are Michael Ford and Michael Knierman. This workshop presents an opportunity to connect with like-minded scientists and discuss the emerging role of automation in sample preparation for proteomics experiments and to share practical experience with automation.

  • Cannabis and Hemp Mass Spec Workshop: A Closer Look at the Applications of Mass Spectrometry in Cannabis Quality Control, Compliance, and Research. Presided by Scott Kuzdzal and Toby Astill. This session will review applications of MS for cannabis and hemp in regulatory environments and quality control testing laboratories, as well as emerging academic, clinical, and industrial areas, including advanced agricultural, nutritional and bioscience programs. Current and future applications of mass spectrometry in advancing cannabis and hemp science will be presented.

  • Developing World: Supporting Education and Research in Mass Spectrometry. Presiders will be Hendrik Kersten and Giles Edwards. The goal of this session is to bring together members of our society who wish to contribute to mass spectrometry related education and research in the developing world. The agenda includes a report on the current status and capabilities of Recycling Organization Research Opportunities (RORO) and a broad discussion on related topics.

  • The Proteomics Standards Initiative and ProteomeXchange: Supporting Open Data Practices in the Proteomics Field. Presiders will be Juan Antonio Vizcaino and Eric W. Deutsch. This session will briefly showcase the most successful projects and highlight some of our ongoing activities of The Proteomics Standards Initiative and ProteomeXchange. Current trends in re-use of public proteomics datasets and fostering discussion among participants about what future directions in both initiatives will be discussed.

  • MS-Based Process Analytical Technology (PAT): Monitoring Everything from Large Molecules to Cell Therapies. Presided by Rich Rogers and Glenn Harris. This workshop will be an interactive discussion among a panel of experts and the workshop attendees on the current state of mass spectrometry-based process analytical technologies (PATs) and how they are improving process development.

  • Career Opportunities for Chinese Students and Scholars. Presiders are Hui Zhang and Liang Li. This workshop is to discuss career development opportunities for Chinese students and scholars aiming to provide career perspectives to students and scholars to learn a vibrant career path after completing their training in mass spectrometry.

  • Polymeric Materials Interest Group-Investigating Polymer Architecture. Presiders will be Christina Mastromatteo and Jessica Hoskins. This year's meeting of the Polymeric Materials Interest Group will consist of three distinct sections: a workshop, student poster elevator-talks, and an open forum on investigating polymer analysis and architecture.
