Online Conference "What’s up with MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry in Microbiology?"

 

Since a decade, the microbiology field knows an incredible revolution at every stage with the developpment of fast and new molecular technologies for the identification of microorganisms. Among those techniques, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry has been implemented in most routine diagnostics laboratories and is the reference method for swift, reliable and cost-effective identification of bacteria and fungi. The research community is strongly active on the development of new application of the MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry such as, antimicrobial resistances and mass COVID-19 screening, rapid bacterial typing and identification of other microorganisms (e.g., viruses, helminths, ecto-parasites).

The aim of this event, will be to highlight recent breaktroughs by renowed expert in the field and give the opportunity to early stage researchers to showcase innovantive projects through small presentations. The symposium is targeting the whole microbiology community, from the health care professionals,  researchers, to biotechnology start-ups and firms.
