The Sao Paulo School of Advanced Science on Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics (SPSAS-MS) is promoted by the Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory (LNBio). The event will be hosted by the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas-SP, Brazil, from August 28th to September 6th, 2017.The SPSAS-MS program comprises classes ministered by experts in each topic as well as oral and poster sessions.

The SPSAS-MS, funded by Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), aims to provide an overview of state-of-art techniques on Quantitative and Spatial Proteomics, Clinical Proteomics, Targeted Proteomics, Post-translational Modifications, Structural Proteomics, Computational and Statistical methods for Proteomics. Access the Program.
