Mass Spectrometry: An Expanding Tool for the Biophysicist

The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy is hosting a one-day symposium entitled “Mass Spectrometry: An Expanding Tool for the Biophysicist” on March 13, 2018, as part of the Biophysical Society's Annual Biophysics Week.

About the Event:

Mass spectrometry-based methods such as footprinting, hydrogen/deuterium exchange (HDX-MS), native spray, ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS), and chemical crosslinking have proven highly valuable in the detailed structural and biophysical characterization of proteins. Such methods can extract unique structural details using considerably less sample and are often very complementary to other classical structural/biophysical probes. As part of Biophysics Week, this symposium aims to showcase the insights that can be garnered from mass spectrometry-based biophysical approaches.

Building on its Mass Spectrometry Center's expertise in hydroxyl radical footprinting methods, HDX-MS, and IM-MS, the School of Pharmacy is pleased to host this innovative symposium, which will feature invited presentations from leading experts in mass spectrometry-based biophysical studies.
