Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry Focused Topic Meeting

Non-Target Analysis for Comprehensive Environmental Assessment
May 26 - 30, 2020 Durham Convention Center, Durham, North Carolina, USA
Traditional approaches for identifying contaminates in the environment are poorly equipped to address the rapid and continual introduction of new chemistries in commerce. Non-target analysis surmounts previous limitations by providing a dynamic, reproducible and high-throughput approach for generating detailed information on chemicals in the environment, which can enable informed decision-making and management. The goal of this meeting is to move non-target screening and its application forward in the context of environmental assessment by involving stakeholders from all sectors.
The meeting will include three main topics:
  • Frontiers in non-target screening: Instrumentation, data evaluation and application to monitoring the water environment
  • Identifying transformation products and metabolites formed in biological and technical systems
  • Tools to prioritize identification: Statistics, exposure indices, toxicity, fate modeling

Annual meeting of the Austrian Proteomics and Metabolomics Association

The APMRS, the annual meeting of the Austrian Proteomics and Metabolomics Association (APMA), will be held from 18 to 20 September 2019 at the University of Salzburg. 
The symposium will provide practitioners of proteome and metabolome analysis with information about the newest experimental and computational concepts and tools. Moreover, there will be ample time for discussions between participants and exchange of ideas for novel and future developments, offering a unique opportunity for the young generation of proteomics researchers to interact with established scientists in the field.
Scientific sessions will cover the following topics and will be opened by international keynote speakers: 
  • bottom-up and top-down proteomics
  • glycoproteomics
  • metabolomics
  • bioinformatics
  • characterization of biotherapeutics
In addition to oral presentations, poster sessions will allow face-to-face discussions of ongoing reserach projects. Best oral presentation & best poster awards will be presented at the end of the symposium.
The progam is completed by workshops on the following topics: 
  • Practical aspects of HPLC separations in omics approaches
  • (Bio)statistical methods for analyzing proteomics and metabolomics datasets
  • Industrial aspects of biopharma characterization

Gary Siuzdak's visit in Switzerland 2019

"Discovering metabolites that alter physiology, an omics perspective"

Over a week, Gary Siuzdak, a Professor of Chemistry, Molecular and Computational Biology and Director of the Center for Metabolomics at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California ( will visit four different Swiss research institutions. Gary’s research focuses on developing mass spectrometry-based metabolomic technologies including, XCMS ( and METLIN ( informatic tools, artificial intelligence, metabolomics activity screening, nanostructure-based imaging, and their applications to fundamental biochemistry and therapeutic intervention. (Tour organizer: Prof. Nicola Zamboni at ETH)
