Swiss Steroid Symposium

Thursday, November 21, 2019
Bern University Hospital
 Contact for Information: Michael Grössl (

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

"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)
