Advanced mass spectrometry applied to cultural heritage

In a nutshell...

This summer school is an innovative and inter/multi-disciplinary training based on advanced mass spectrometry to decipher the complexity of cultural heritage material, i.e. artworks, archaeological and palaeological materials, via their organic macromolecular signatures uncoding (proteins, lipids, polysaccharides).

This six-day course combines lectures and hands-on workshops in sample preparation, current mainstream mass spectrometry techniques and their most recent improvements, omics, and bioinformatics, all within the framework of cultural heritage. The school is open to graduate students, doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers, academics and private actors in analytical and heritage sciences.

This summer school offers a unique opportunity to develop strong knowledge in advanced mass spectrometry within a inter and multidisciplinary program which links analytical chemists, physicists, chemists, experts in formulation, computational modeling experts, conservators, restorers and archaeologists.
