MALDI-Imaging Mass-spectrometry (IMS) is a novel technique at the forefront of imaging-based scientific research. This technique allows the acquisition of “Molecular” images for any tissue based on the distribution of proteins, lipids or small molecules. With extensive application to basic and clinical research, IMS is becoming a powerful tool for diagnosis and for biomarker discovery. This conference will reunite world-leaders in IMS who will present their personal experiences on this field, including applications to basic and clinical sciences, both for diagnoses and biomarker discovery.
Scientists of all fields are welcome to attend.
Special emphasis will be placed on the use of IMS for cancer research.
