Swiss Group for Mass Spectrometry
The Swiss Group for Mass Spectrometry is a society that furthers interactions between scientists working in the various fields of mass spectrometry, doing basic research from gas phase ion chemistry to life sciences, in academia, industry and regulation. The SGMS was founded in 1982 (see history). Roughly two hundred individuals are listed as members. The SGMS also is an Associated Member Society of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS).
Confirmed Speakers at the 2018 SGMS meeting
- Evan Williams (University of California Berkeley)
- Serge Rudaz (University of Geneva)
- Mario Thevis (German Sport University Cologne)
- Ron Heeren (Maastricht University)
- Bernd Bodenmiller (University of Zurich)
2018 SGMS School Program FTMS Fundamentals
The 2018 pre-SGMS workshop is about “FTMS Fundamentals”. It will focus on teaching and discussing current knowledge in Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS), with a particular focus on Orbitrap FTMS fundamentals and FTMS data processing. The program is built around didactic lectures and practical workshops, with a particular emphasis on hands-on problem solving, obtaining practical knowledge of data processing, and interaction with the teachers. The workshop is designed for the FTMS end-users in academic and industrial analytical departments, with a focus on industrial scientists, advanced graduate students, post-docs and scientists in the areas of analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry and biotechnology.
2018 SGMS Award goes to Bernd Bodenmiller
Dear SGMS members,
It is my pleasure to announce on behalf of the SGMS award committee that the recipient of the 3rd SGMS award is Prof. Bernd Bodenmiller. Please join the SGMS board in congratulating Bernd with this excellent achievement. We are looking forward to his presentation at the annual meeting in Beatenberg.
The Division Analytical Sciences of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCG/DAS) is organizing CHanalysis, a meeting of Swiss analytical scientists. We cordially invite you to participate in the next meeting in the Dorint Hotel in Beatenberg on 12–13 April 2018.
The goal is to stimulate a stronger cooperation among persons working in different areas of analytical sciences. Scientists from applied and fundamental research, from industry, education, and regulation are welcome. Click! on the above image for more info.
Student Meeting Reports
The SGMS regularly supports students with travel awards. This is possible due to our generous sponsors. One of the requirements is that the awardee writes a small report (with a nice picture). These reports can now be found online HERE!
