Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Summer Workshop 2016
DATES: Monday, July 11 - Wednesday, July 13, 2016
TIME:  9am-4pm daily
LOCATION: Biomedical Research Tower, Room 115 (460 W. 12th Ave, Columbus, OH)
REGISTRATION: Registration is now CLOSED 
See below

During the workshop (after the lunch break) we organize lab visits to show you our working instrumentation. Due to the large number of workshop participants (54 as of writing!), we offer this on both Monday and Tuesday so that the labs will not be overcrowded. We will further split you into four subgroups and will rotate between different instruments. Please think about which day (Mon. or Tue.) is better for you. This can be determined when you come to the workshop, no need to tell us in advance. Ideally, it would be nice to have about the same number of visitors both days, so flexibility is appreciated.

If you want to participate in our open discussion by giving a 10-15 minute presentation on how mass spectrometry helped in your research, please contact Arpad Somogyi (somogyi.16@osu.edu).

The Mass Spectrometry Summer Workshop is organized by the CCIC Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics (MSP) Facility. Our goal is to provide/refresh fundamental information about mass spectrometry and introduce a variety of instruments and applications. The workshop is mostly application oriented and will cover the following topics: sample preparation for MS analyses, proteomics, metabolomics, mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation, MS modes of scanning, ion activation, and spectral interpretation. This Workshop will also give us an opportunity to get to know each other better, to discuss your needs and initiate scientifically valuable collaborations.

This workshop is offered free of charge to OSU researchers and the local community. Please sign-up so that we know how many to expect.

Please contact Arpad Somogyi (somogyi.16@osu.edu), Associate Director of Mass Spectrometry & Proteomics, with any questions.

Open Discussion

TopSpin NMR Software is now free!
Bruker announced at the 57th ENC held in Pittsburgh in April 2016 that they will now provide the latest version of TopSpin processing software for free for academic use. TopSpin is used on all of the instruments in the CCIC NMR Facility and offers many useful tools for analysis and visualization of data acquired at the facility. For details and download, please see Bruker's Announcement.
CCIC NMR now houses 8 high field instruments (600-850 MHz)!

Contact staff for details and access.

CCIC NMR getting involved in major metabolomics initiative by NIH
NIH has funded the integrated metabolomics center SECIM in which the Bruschweiler Lab is an active participant. Our contribution to SECIM and CCIC-NMR is making web server and software tools available for the (semi-)automated analysis of metabolomic mixtures by NMR, see http://spin.ccic.ohio-state.edu/.
