NanoSIMS Workshop 2023

October 16-18

Welcome to the NanoSIMS Workshop 2023 in Gothenburg Sweden.

The workshop is an in person meeting to discuss the latest accomplishments in all fields of science leveraging the unique capabilities of high spatial resolution SIMS and NanoSIMS . This an­nual work­shop serves as a plat­form for ex­chan­ging res­ults, ex­pert­ise, and tech­no­lo­gical de­vel­op­ments re­gard­ing nanoSIMS 50/​50L, sample preparation and complementary techniques. We in­vite stu­dents, re­search­ers and nanoSIMS op­er­at­ors from sci­ence and in­dustry to come and share their know­ledge in their re­spect­ive fields of re­search.

The workshop features a special focus day on drug discovery and life science together highlighting advances in high spatial mass spectrometry imaging.

Register for the full conference or just the drugdiscovery day.

The Workshop will be held at the PGN conference center at AstraZeneca Mölndal just outside of Gothenburg city center.
