Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry
calendar_month 28 Sep 2015, 00:00
Ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS) is a modern analytical technique, which separates ions on the basis of their size/charge ratios. It has shortly evolved as a powerful tool for investigating molecular structure and separating complex samples. It is today applied widely on chemical, biochemical and biological analysis and has great impact from separation isomers to metabolomics and structural biology. This course introduces the operational principles, key methods and instrumental design related on ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS). In addition, IMS as a stand alone technique, theoretical methods for determination of collision cross sections and IM-MS application for analysis of small molecules, biomolecules and supramolecules are discussed.

Course leader
Lecturers: Prof. Perdita Barran (University of Manchester, Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, United Kingdom), and Dr. Cristian Lapthorn (University of Greenwich, United Kingdom)Coordinator: Dr. Elina Kalenius (University of Jyvskyl, Finland)

Target group
Basic knowledge of mass spectrometry. M.Sc. or final term student in chemistry, biochemistry or biology. The Summer School annually offers courses for advanced master's students, graduate students, and post-docs in the various fields of science and information technology.

Course aim
The most important aims of the Summer School are to develop post-graduates scientific readiness and to offer students the possibility to study in a modern, scientific environment and to create connections to the international science community.

Credits info
2 ECTS Passing: Obligatory attendance at lectures, and home exam.Grading: Pass/fail

Fee info
EUR 0: Participating the Summer School is free of charge, but student have to cover the costs of own travel, accommodation and meals at Jyvskyl.

The 25th Jyvskyl Summer School is not able to grant any Summer School students financial support. In order to ensure your participation, we recommend that you take steps to secure your own funding, for example, by turning first to your home institution
