Bordeaux Summer School - Advanced mass spectrometry applied to cultural heritage
June 16th - June 18th, 2021
This online 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).
Lasting three days, the course is delivered remotely and combines lectures and 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 program is open to doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers, academics, as well as private and museum actors in analytical and heritage sciences.
