An important mission of the National Research Resource for Imaging Mass Spectrometry is to increase the availability of imaging mass spectrometry to the scientific community through educational programs. The Resource has established several routes for training individuals interested in applying this technology to their own research. Contact us to request additional information on training opportunities.


AIMS

AIMS (Advanced Imaging Mass Spectrometry) is a short-course conducted by Resource faculty and staff. The curriculum includes 3.5 days of lectures and hands-on workshops focusing on the practical aspects of MALDI imaging.  Participants get hands-on experience with many of the key elements, including sample sectioning, matrix application, image generation, and image processing.

This course is typically held in April.

The dates for AIMS.2018 have been set!  AIMS.2018 will occur April 23-27, 2018. Please click on the AIMS page for more details!


Visiting Scholar Program

Individuals or small groups may benefit from on-site training (offered as time permits), spending 2-3 days or more in the Resource laboratories. This time is typically spent observing the imaging process and consulting with Resource staff about sample preparation and data processing. These are arranged on an individual basis.

Please contact us to take advantage of this opportunity.


Consultation

Questions about specific aspects of imaging mass spectrometry may also be submitted to the Resource for discussion. Please contact us to take advantage of this opportunity.
