We aim to facilitate connections and new collaborations between research trainees and faculty from institutions in the greater Chicagoland area and throughout the Midwest. This is achieved by highlighting work by early career scientists and promoting the capabilities of mass spectrometry instrumentation throughout the region.
Session for students, postdocs, trainees, and early career scientists only
