Dear Colleagues,

     We are delighted to have our 1st Symposium on Mass Spectrometry Applied to Proteomics and Structural Biology taking place in Minas Gerais at the Federal University of Minas Gerais. We cordially invite you to Belo Horizonte on November 2019. Sometimes called BH (“Beagá” in Portuguese), is now to be the location for this unique event that gathers experts in mass spectrometry from different Universities and countries.

     Here we want to provide a great opportunity for our community to learn the state-of-the-art thinking and practice in mass spectrometry to a diverse audience of students and specialists.

     The local organizing committee is looking forward to 4 days of fascinating presentations. The topics of this symposium include glycoproteome, pathogen-host interactions, phosphoproteome, animal venoms, diabetes, start-up stories, challenges and new perspectives on MS at UFMG. 

     Besides the exciting scientific programs, with its up-to-date topics and recent findings, we want to provide a social program with an opening cocktail and one night at the pub with the beautiful view of our “Lagoa da Pampulha”. It is an opportunity both to get in touch with our special guest Prof. Peter Roepstorff from Denmark and to become acquainted with the science done in our University.

     The local organizing committee, together with the Institute of Biological Sciences, the Pharmacy Faculty and the Mass Spectrometry Core Facility (LMProt) looks forward to welcoming our specialists and colleagues.

Prof. Dr. Peter Roepstorff
Prof. Dr. Peter Roepstorff

Peter Roepstorff is one of the pioneers in protein mass spectrometry and proteomics. His research group works on development of methodology for mass spectrometric protein analysis with focus on post translational modifications including protein oxidation as function of aging and also the use of mass spectrometric protein analysis in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry. Another research area is investigation of the global biodiversity through characterization of peptides and proteins from a number of different organisms for which no genome sequence is available. These include fluorescent proteins from marine organisms collected during the Danish Galathea 3 Expedition and bioactive peptides and proteins from e.g. frogs scorpions and snakes collected on different locations in the world.
