From the 2nd until the 6th of June five members of the ICCVS (Dave, Sachin, Satya, Marcos and Naomi) represented our research center at the 67th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The meeting focused on various topics within mass spectrometry and is the largest conference in the field with more than 6,500 attendees from around the globe.
The conference opened with an interesting talk by Mark Jacobson on the global transition to renewable energy. The next day we gave poster presentations (see attached photos). Marcos showed the results of his research on the proteogenomic landscape of undifferentiated pleiomorphic sarcomas and Naomi presented her work on the proteomic analysis of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded glioblastoma tissues.
During the conference, we attended various talks and workshops and learned about other incredible research projects while visiting posters in the exhibit hall. The conference ended with a dinner in the Georgia Aquarium where we saw sharks and dolphins and got the chance to pet starfishes!
Overall, we enjoyed our time in Atlanta and it was a great learning experience!
