August 26th and 27th, 2006
Anyone seeking an introduction to the field of mass spectrometry its instrumentation and its application to proteomics, metabolomics, and drug discovery. A general understanding of a mass spectrometry is helpful. Typical attendees include scientists, engineers, lab managers, marketing and sales professionals, and students.
Mike Greig (Michael.Greig@pfizer.com) has led the Discovery Technologies Mass Spectrometry group at Pfizer Global R&D - La Jolla Laboratories since 1997. Prior to that, he worked at Revlon Science Institute (La Jolla, CA) working as a polymer and analytical chemist and at Isis Pharmaceuticals (Carlsbad, CA) as the Mass Spectrometry Lab Manager. He has over 13 years experience in the field of mass spectrometry and analytical chemistry, analyzing everything from small molecules to polymers to proteins. He has taught mass spectrometry classes at various scientific conferences around the world, is a member of the Lab Automation Scientific Committee, and has over 40 presentations and publications. Specific expertise in high throughput MS systems, software and analysis, oligonucleotide analysis, SFC/MS and LC/MS, FTICR-MS, APPI, and general mass spectrometry.
