Pre-Meeting Workshops



IMSS 3 Pre-Meeting Workshops

Three pre-meeting workshops (3 hours) will be held concurrently on October 3, 2021 starting at 1 pm before the opening gala. The cost for a workshop is $50.  Spaces are limited.  You must register separately for the workshop.  To register for one of the workshops, click here (available July 23rd).


WORKSHOP 1
MSIREADER: EVOLVING SOFTWARE FOR THE MASS SPECTROMETRY IMAGING COMMUNITY

This 4-hour workshop will cover the following topics. We will start the workshop with an introduction to MSiReader (for new users) and cover basic functions (~45 minutes). Next we will cover new advanced tools and algorithms in MSiReader with specific examples starting with the theory and experimental design and then the application to real-world samples (~2 hours). The remaining time will be spent seeking input from attendees as to what they would like to see added to MSiReader to support their research. Prior to the workshop, we will provide all attendees with a beta version of MSiReader that will need to be installed PRIOR to arriving at IMSS so if there are issues, we can resolve those ahead of time. At the meeting we will provide datasets for examples worked out during the workshop. This will be a highly interactive workshop and will be both educational as well as allow the the developers of MSiReader to learn from participants what their needs are and add these tools to future versions of MSiReader.

WORKSHOP 2:
MULTIMODAL IMS: CONCEPTS AND PRACTICALITIES OF INTEGRATING IMS, MICROSCOPY AND OTHER DATA

This workshop will discuss fundamental concepts and practicalities of how researchers can best use microscopy (and other modalities) to guide their IMS data analysis or data acquisition. We will discuss and demonstrate topics such as image file formats, image registration, microscopy-guided image analysis, and more. In addition, we will discuss some advanced methods employed at the Mass Spectrometry Research Center to achieve high accuracy image registration and powerful image analysis.

WORKSHOP 3:
INTEGRATED MULTI-ENZYME APPROACHES TO IMAGING MASS SPECTROMETRY 

This 2.5-hour workshop will cover the following topics. We will start the workshop with an introduction to the molecular constituents of the cell surface and tissue microenvironment. (~15 minutes), followed by a brief tutorial on preparing and working with formalin-fixed tissues (~10 minutes). Imaging mass spectrometry approaches to characterizing glycans and complex glycoconjugates in tissue and cell lines will be described. These approaches will be linked with other histopathology and cellular analysis tools (~45 minutes). Next, strategies to use iMS for analysis of the protein components of the extracellular matrix and different post-translational modifications will be presented (~45 min). Data analysis strategies and new approaches will also be addressed in the discussion and question/answer period (~30 minutes).
