The LBMSDG committee are pleased to announce that we have our 3rd online meeting on Thursday 6th May 2021. As in keeping with previous meetings, we will kick off at 13.00 and will provide attendees with a series of diverse talks on how mass spectrometry can be used to tackle complex biological questions.

Further information regarding the online Zoom meeting can be found in the Events section of our website, will be posted on our twitter feed & sent round on the LBMSDG mailing list


Now into our 16th year, despite the challenges of 2021, we are still organising meetings (current in an online format) and aim to return to face to face meetings as soon as is possible. In order to encourage as many people to attend as possible our meeting are free for all to attend, there are no membership or registration fees.

Meetings typically consist of a plenary lecture followed by four twenty-minute talks including a student presentation. The emphasis of the talks is to promote discussion, present problems and highlight topical issues and there is plenty of time between talks for debate. With the help of our sponsors we provide a free buffet lunch and a wine reception allowing ample time to mull over the talks and network. We are always open for suggestions on the content of meetings and if you would like to present, provide sponsorship, a venue or have any questions about our group please feel free to get in touch via email.

In 2015 the LBMSDG connected with the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Separation Science Group and we are pleased to announce that the best student talk in 2021 will also carry a £400 prize! The winner of the 2019 prize will be announced at the March Meeting.
