What to do on the final day of ASMS?

Welcome to the final day of ASMS!

We can’t possibly end the 72nd ASMS meeting without attending the closing ceremony where Parag Mallick from Stanford University will be discussing “The Crazy Thing That Happens When Science & Magic Collide.” A Mickey Mouse-mass spec crossover maybe? Stay to find out – or to enjoy the closing event with all the attendees later this evening. 

If you didn’t get the chance to talk to us, make sure to share your best bits (pictures and commentary are both welcome!)

Goodbyes are always bittersweet, so consider this a see you soon…

That’s all folks! (Oops. Wrong franchise)

Today’s Must See

8:30–10:30 am (Room 304CD/ Level 3): Industry: Trace Analysis, Quality Control, and Automation (Chaired by Stella Betancourt)

Wondering what’s happening outside of academia? Industry experts share the latest advancements in mass spec –  from microchip electrophoresis and automated workflows to a 3D printed hardware for meso-scale proteomics.

9:50–10:10 pm (Ballroom DE/ Level 3): A new adaptation of the Omnitrap platform integrated into a trapped ion mobility time-of-flight mass spectrometer (Dimitris Papanastasiou)

How does the new configuration combining the Omnitrap platform – the first attempt to integrate the entire fragmentation toolbox into a single unit – and trapped ion mobility time-of-flight mass spectrometry work? What does it offer? The 2024 Ron Hites Award recipient, Dimitris Papanastasiou, takes the stage to discuss his award winning instrumental work for in-depth characterization of proteins. 

2:30–4:30 pm (Room 210ABC/ Level 2): Biomarkers: Quantitative Analysis (Chaired by Annie Moradian)

Annie Moradian invites mass spec experts to discuss their approaches to biomarker detection – contributing to the advancement and development of clinical diagnostics. Here, you can find out more about CAR-T therapy, miRNA analysis for breast cancer diagnosis, LC-MS guided tissue analysis, a mass spec-based immunoassay for detection of severe acute pancreatitis and many more mass spec applications…

Tomorrow’s Planner

8:30–10:30 am (Ballroom AB/ Level 3): Artificial Intelligence in MS Instrumentation and Applications

9:50–10:10 pm (Ballroom DE/ Level 3): A new adaptation of the Omnitrap platform integrated into a trapped ion mobility time-of-flight mass spectrometer (Dimitris Papanastasiou)

3:10–3:30 pm (Room 304CD/ Level 3): Breaking Through PFAS Characterization Barriers with High-Resolution Ion Mobility (Mark Strynar)

4:45–5:30 pm (Hall C/ Lobby Level): The Crazy Thing That Happens When Science & Magic Collide (Parag Mallick)

Thought of the Day

Analytical scientists play a critical role in the PFAS issue. We need to continue applying existing analytical methods to generate sound defensible data for occurrence, risk, and remediation efforts. To continue our understanding of the changing PFAS landscape, we also need to conduct exploratory investigations using NTA, organo-fluorine, TOP, and PIGE methods. As method developers and PFAS scientists, we owe it to consumers to do both and do them well. At the EPA, our mission is to protect human health and the environment. Real and concrete regulatory decisions are made based on analytical data, and I believe it’s our responsibility to help alleviate past PFAS contamination while looking to the future for new issues that may arise.” – Mark Strynar

Strynar will be explaining how high-resolution ion mobility coupled with liquid chromatography  and QTOF mass spectrometry can help us overcome characterization challenges in PFAS analysis. The talk is taking place at 3:10 pm in room 304CD (Level 3).


Wondering how to cure your post-ASMS blues? It’s nothing that the California sun and some sandy walks can’t cure… Check out this list of the best beaches to visit if you decide to extend your trip! 

“Good times we'll share again.” If you’re familiar with these lyrics, you might actually want to stick around and see Janet Jackson perform in the Honda Center in celebration of her 50th anniversary in entertainment. What better way to end your ASMS trip than dancing along to her legendary songs?!
