The course covers the fundamental aspects of mass spectrometry, assuming an undergraduate level of basic chemistry, but requiring no previous knowledge of the technique or practical experience.
This introductory course is designed for scientists from other disciplines (incl. the clinical, pharmaceutical and life sciences, and novices to MS from archeology to zoology) or laboratory managers who will be employing mass spectrometry data in their analytical projects and wish to gain a solid understanding of the technique or who want to gain an awareness of its potential applications. The course will be useful for post-graduate research students embarking on research projects involving mass spectrometry. Current users of mass spectrometry will also find the course an excellent refresher to the theory of the technique and a means to keep abreast of recent developments and advances.
