Research Groups

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.

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.

New research group in Dresden MS Community

Dr. Maria Fedorova appointed research group leader at the Center for Membrane Biochemistry and Lipid Research, Dresden, Germany.


MS Journal Club for Users (MS4U) series

This series is supported by Campus MS community, continues from November 2020.

New JC format aims to compensate absence of face-to-face meetings, and help scientists and medical crowd to to assess ms-based publications in their research field. It should also tighten contacts between scientific research community and analytics available at the Campus.

These monthly meetings will be helpful for you if
- you would like to know more about how exactly MS works
- you would like to know how MS technology can contribute to your research
- you would like to use certain MS method
