Bremen Mass Spectrometry Seminar is an open seminar invited talks on mass spectrometry covering both technology and applications. The aim of the Seminar is to establish a discussion and networking platform in the Bremen area and to strengthen reputation of Bremen as the capital of mass spectrometry.

The Seminar is run by seven organizers both from academia and industry.

If you are interested in proposing a talk, please contact the organizers by email.

To receive information about upcoming talks, we encourage you to subscribe to our mailing list.

The talks take place on Wednesdays, starting at 16:00 (4 pm) followed by a wine and cheese reception.
