Luisa Doria has been awarded a travel grant from the Imperial College Trust General Fund. She will be using this grant to attend the 11th Annual International Conference of the Metabolomics Society, after being accepted for a long oral presentation, entitled: “A systems biology approach for the classification of ovarian cancer specimens by desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry” in the session provisionally titled “Systems biology of cancer metabolism”. The title of the paper will be: A systems biology approach for the classification of ovarian cancer specimens by desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry.
Jocelyn Tillner has been awarded three travel grants from the ASMS, British Society for Mass Spectrometry and Imperial College Trust General Fund. Jocelyn will be attending the Annual conference of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry in St Louis, Missouri, to present a poster on “Cross-platform applicability of DESI-MSI – effect of ion source setups and atmospheric pressure interfaces on performance and information recovery”.
Nazanin Zounemat Kermani has also been awarded grants to attend talks for both the Metabolomics and ASMS 2015 conferences.
