Save the Date and Join us at The First On-Campus visit of MSsmall Research Groups

We are pleased to announce that the first of a series of on-campus visits of MSsmall research groups will take place on March 3rd 2020 at the Technology park site, i.e. visit of the DoCoLab and the Bio-energy group.

DoCoLab (Prof. P. Van Eenoo, Prof. K. Deventer) is BELAC accredited and is one of 32 worldwide laboratories accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) for doping analysis. An overview of the types of compounds analyzed by DOCOLAB can be found here. The lab houses a large number and a great variety of mass spectrometry instruments.
The Bio-energy group (Prof. W. Boerjan, Dr. K. Morreel ( focuses on plant biology. The group performs a lot of comparative analyses between wild type and transgenic plants (Arabidopsis, poplar, maize…) for lignin chemistry. The Bio-energy group has a great expertise in plant metabolomics and the associated bioinformatics tools for data analysis. From this group has emerged the VIB-UGent Core facility for metabolomics.

To find out more about the activities and mass spectrometry infrastructure/expertise of both the DoCoLab and the Bio-energy group, and to connect again with MSsmall colleagues, please join us at the first on-campus visit of MSsmall research groups.

Where: Technology park site, Zwijnaarde (FVMS Auditorium, UGent-VIB Research Building, Technologiepark 71, 9052 GENT)

When: March 3rd 2020,  from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM
