Mass Spectrometry at Dresdner Campus: A Road Map

MS Community Dresden:

The MS Community provides support to biological and clinical research projects carried at the Campus. It comprises MS-Facilities and MS-research groups from the MPI CBG, UKD, CMCB (TUD), CRTD and NCT, and Lipotype GmbH. The sites host more than 20 high-end MS instruments and have expertise in MS-based Lipidomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics. We work on service base and open for research collaborations. To our activities belong regular meetings, organization of ms-events, MS journal club and scientific consulting.

MS Journal Club for Users (MS4U)

MS4U was launched in 2020 to build a bridge between MS Community and scientists working in biological and clinical research at Dresdner campus. Here we discuss articles selected by YOU.
You found a hot paper related to your scientific topic but...
- do not understand ms-method?
- unsure if it fosters YOUR project?
- unclear if this is routine or only runs in a single lab?
- and, how it practically works?
Once you suggest an article or topic, we will look for complementary articles published by leading practitioners in this field and then analyze them together with you. MS-Lipidomics, MS-proteomics, MS-metabolomics, MS-imaging, any MS - let's discuss it with MS-Profis from the entire Dresden campus!
Submit YOUR HOT PAPER suggestion by

The JC rules are the following:

  1. The assigned person choses the paper in advance and sends it around, but does not present it.
  2. Most importantly, Everyone Reads the Paper!
  3. Starting person (randomly chosen) describes (questiones, criticizes) the first figure/paragraph/topic, and all together we try to figure out what authors wanted to say. The second person (randomly chosen) describes the second figure and so on.
  4. Please come if you read the paper.
  5. If you bring your colleagues or friends, make sure that they are aware of the rules.
