Analytical tools in life sciences
Engineered nanomaterials are subject of intense research since several years – nanoanalytical tools are mainly based on fractionation techniques such as FFF, HDC and CE coupled on-line with ICP-MS. Nowadays imaging techniques gain importance in life-science, e.g. for the application of nanomaterials or the analysis of single-cells.
Thus, the 7th Workshop on Field Flow Fractionation and Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS) will take place in Leipzig, Germany, 28-29 November 2019. It will focus on the application of nanomaterials in life science and environmental technology and the applicability of nanoanalytical tools in these fields.
A special focus will be placed on the complementary analysis of nanomaterials in life science application as well as during their synthesis. Special topics are
- analysis of organic cappings and organic nanomaterials
- Analysis of interactions between nanomaterial and biological tissue
- Synthesis and application of nanomaterials in life science and environmental technology.
Scope of the Workshop
Part I (first day) will start with two survey lectures given by experts:
- Dr. Sophie Marie Briffa from University of Birmingham, UK
- Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Tremel from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany
in the field. Scientific presentations will complete the morning and afternoon session. Speakers will receive a partial travel subsidy.
Part II (second day) of the workshop will be organized in the format of a tutorial on a field relevant topic offering various opportunities for discussion given by experts:
- Prof. Dr. Karsten Mäder
- Dr. Stijn Van Malderen
Prof. Dr. Karsten Mäder will focus on the topic of drug carrier characterization and their biological fate. Dr. Stijn Van Malderen will give a tutorial on LA-ICP-MS analysis and imaging.
