Program Description

MSACL EU is an off-shoot of the highly successful MSACL US conference that has been held on the West Coast of the US since 2008. The conference provides a forum for discussing the clinical application of mass spectrometry by bringing together academic and industrial experts in the field with those driven to explore and understand more about the potential application and benefits. The mission of MSACL is to accelerate the implementation of mass spectrometry in the clinical laboratory with the goal of contributing to the improvement of patient standard-of-care as well as reducing health care costs.

MSACL invests heavily in education via the MSACL Educational Travel Grants, which support conference attendance:

  1. Young Investigator Grants: Young investigators, in the first four years of their academic position, who submit an abstract which is accepted for presentation (poster/podium) at the annual conference. Applicants must submit a short application.
  2. Lab Director Grants: Lab Directors interested in learning more about what mass spectrometry is and how it could potentially improve results and reduce costs in their clinical laboratory are not required to submit an abstract, but must submit a short application.
  3. Trainee Grants: Lab Directors-to-be interested in learning more about what mass spectrometry is and how it could potentially improve results and reduce costs in their clinical laboratory are not required to submit an abstract, but must submit a short application.

It's the abstracts that make the meeting. If you are working in clinical mass spectrometry and have compelling research, submit your abstract for presentation at the MSACL EU Conference.

MSACL focuses on topics including bioinformatics, metabolomics, microbiology, small molecule and proteomics. A comprehensive list is below.

Expected Topics for MSACL 2017 EU

*Note: Abstracts are solicited for the topics listed below, however, if no abstracts are submitted and accepted on any given topic then it will not be covered at the conference.

Abstract Topics

MSACL is soliciting abstracts for both oral and poster presentations under the topics of:

  1. Troubleshooting
  2. Endocrinology
  3. Troubleshooting Poster Rounds
    • A team of experienced users (and interested attendees) will visit posters to listen to a brief summary by the presenter, and then discuss the case and provide troubleshooting suggestions. If you want your poster to be included in Troubleshooting Grand Rounds, select the Troubleshooting Poster Rounds topic when you submit your abstract.
  4. Small Molecules
  5. Metabolomics
  6. Proteomics
  7. Microbiology / Virology / Parasitology
  8. Tissue Imaging
  9. Genomics
  10. Bioinformatics
  11. Regulations & Standards
  12. Various OTHER
  13. Practical Training - Invited Only

Target Audience

The target audience for this program includes pathologists, clinical laboratory directors and scientists, mass spectrometry and automated sample processing providers as well as laboratory diagnostic providers. This program will be beneficial to healthcare administrators, laboratory quality control and standards scientists, as well as those responsible for implementation of clinical analyses for emergency response due to terrorism or accident.
