SLING training course

“i c lipid” – immersion course into mass spectrometry based lipidomics

May 19 - 23, 2014 (fully booked)

November 10 - 14, 2014

National University of Singapore

Lipids, commonly known as “fats”, occur naturally in bewildering chemical complexity. They are main components of oils, fuels and bio-membranes in living organisms and are also widely used as lubricants and detergents. Mass spectrometry has become a powerful approach for systems level scale analysis of lipids (lipidomics).


The key objective of this SLING training course is to provide an effective primer to mass spectrometry based lipidomics. The format is intensive (5 days with morning lectures followed by practical demonstrations in the afternoon), integrated (entire workflow from sample preparation to data interpretation), interactive (small groups, 4-5 tutors/10-12 participants).


Who should attend?
Students and scientists who wish to embark into lipidomics. Experience in mass spectrometry is advantageous but not a requirement.


Lecturers & tutors
Markus Wenk (Principal Investigator) is a well-known expert in the field of lipidomics. His laboratory is considered one of the leading groups worldwide in the emerging field of lipidomics. Dr Wenk together with five senior scientists and research assistants from the Singapore Lipidomics Incubator will deliver the lectures and practical demonstrations.


Location
The event will be held at the SLING facilities located at the National University of Singapore, Centre for Life Sciences.


Registration and costs
The course cost of SGD 5,000 for academic and SGD 8,000 for corporate participants includes all lectures, demonstrations and handouts, as well as catering during coffee and tea breaks. Travel and accommodation are at the discretion and responsibility of the participants. For registration please contact Dr Anne Bendt (anne.bendt(at)nus.edu.sg).
