The Mass Spectrometry Summer Workshop is organized by the CCIC Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics (MSP) Facility. Our goal is to provide/refresh fundamental information about mass spectrometry and introduce a variety of instruments and applications. The workshop is mostly application oriented and will cover the following topics: sample preparation for MS analyses, proteomics, metabolomics, mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation, MS modes of scanning, ion activation, and spectral interpretation. This Workshop will also give us an opportunity to get to know each other better, to discuss your needs and initiate scientifically valuable collaborations.

This workshop is offered free of charge to OSU researchers and the local community. The workshop schedule and pdf copies of the presentations will be made available on the website prior to the class.  All lecture notes should be available by Friday, July 25th. Please sign-up so that we know how many to expect.  You are welcome to attend for any part of the 3 days.  Hope to see you there!

Registration is free but mandatory.

This symposium takes place to celebrate the opening of the new NMR center at OSU’s Campus Chemical Instrument Center (CCIC). With the support from OSU, the state of Ohio, and the NIH, our new center comprises 9 high-field NMR instruments by Bruker Biospin with magnetic fields between 600 MHz and 850 MHz. The capabilities of this state-of-the-art NMR center, which are unique in the US, allow the investigation of a wide range of molecules and materials. During the symposium, you will have the opportunity to learn more about he capabilities of our instruments during guided tours by our NMR staff.

The Symposium starts at 9:00 am on Saturday, October 3rd, and will take place in the CBEC building on north campus.

We have been able to invite an outstanding group of speakers who will demonstrate the power of NMR for many different applications from biomolecules to materials and metabolomics.

POEM will be composed of tutorials by faculty, student talks, poster sessions, and will provide extensive opportunities for interaction between CEM students (on and offsite), and students at NMHU (New Mexico Highlands University), as well as CEM faculty. The workshop also  provides a platform to CEM faculty for exchange of innovative ideas to further the research direction of CEM. This internal workshop is closed to the public.

Workshop on Spins, Valleys, and Topological States in 2D and Layered Materials @ Physics Research Building
Jun 5 – Jun 9 all-day

The aim of the workshop is to bring together a leading group of researchers, in addition to students, postdocs and other participants, to discuss 2D platforms for spin, valley, and topological physics and their potential applications. With the continued evolution of graphene spintronics, combined with the recent advances in spin/valley-polarized excitations in transition metal dichalocogenides, and novel concepts related to the theory and synthesis of emerging new materials, there is a critical mass of researchers with complementary interests. In addition, monolayer magnetism and robust 2D topological states are important challenges moving forward. At this workshop, participants will bring expertise from a variety of disciplines and discuss the latest advances in this growing field. This workshop is supported by the Center for Emergent Materials (CEM) an NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), the Institute of Complex and Adaptive Matter (ICAM), the Institute for Materials Research (IMR), and the Center for Exploration of Novel Complex Materials (ENCOMM).
