What are the next killer applications of mass spectrometry?

Mass spectrometry (MS) is playing a crucial role in a wide range of life sciences applications.

What are the upcoming advancements and how can we drive further innovation at this frontier?

AIMMS 2023 Festival Recap

150 scientists and industry collaborating and pushing science further

 
 

How can we design molecules with desired functionality?

Whether developing new drugs to combat diseases or designing non-toxic alternatives

to harmful chemicals the ability to design molecules with specific functionalities is crucial.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli.

Methods

  • Effect Directed Analsys (EDA)

  • Analytical chemistry

  • (Cell) Biology

  • Single-cell
