Contribution of the Frontier Mass Spectrometry-based Technology to Biomedical Research and Life Science.Talk abstract:
Mass spectrometry has been developed into a unique technology after a century of continuous innovation. It has been applied a wide range of researches. The discovery of electrospray (ESI) and MALDI ionization methods allowed mass spectrometry to leap out of traditional physical chemistry into biology. The complex organism itself and the multivariate research scope of modern bioloby provide the unquestionable space of technological innovation for the development of mass spectrometry technology. At the same time, it also makes the biology research more thorough and extensive. In recent years, "precision medicine" has become one of the hot spots of global attention and provides a new direction and model for future biomedical research. Mass spectrometry-based multiomics technology will play even more important role in discovery of accurate biomarkers for early diagnosis, pathological classification, and physio-biological mechanisms. This presentation will illustrate the cutting-edge mass spectrometry technologies we are developing and their contributions and applications in the life sciences.
