Troubleshooting Poster Rounds

We are looking forward to two Troubleshooting Poster Rounds (TPR) sessions at MSACL in Palm Springs.

The goal for the Troubleshooting Poster Rounds is to have an informal interaction between the entire group of troubleshooting poster presenters and the reviewers. If other conference- goers join in, all the better. There are no firm guidelines for this session, but the idea is for the presenters to give a 3-5 minute summary of their poster to start off the discussion. Tell us about the problem you encountered, and how you went about troubleshooting. The interaction is meant to be collegial, not critical, with the goal of attendees learning from your experience and you learning from any insight the group can contribute. Troubleshooting Poster Rounds and other Practical Training events at MSACL are designed to promote networking and education in the clinical mass spectrometry community.

There will be Two Sessions in the Exhibit Hall:
