"Imaging Mass Spectrometry; Protocols for Mass Microscopy"

New edition: Mass microscopy experimental protocol - was issued.
The Japanese version of the protocol was published last year after it was first released by Springer as an English version promoting advanced knowledge in this rapidly growing field.
The cover illustration of a mass microscope is by Kunio Okawara, the Japanese mechanical designer famous for his designs for the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam, and is inspired by the Shimadzu machine architecture as described by the editor, Mitsutoshi Setou.

Every Tuesday, the molecular anatomy seminar will be held

The molecular anatomy seminar is held in Hamamatsu University School of Medicine.
Every person on the campus is able to attend the seminar without prior registration, even if coming late or leaving early time. It is OK even while taking a snack.
Seminar schedule future
4/27 (Tue) 13:00 to 3:00 p.m. nursing Building 2F Conference Room
5/11 (Tue) 13:00 to 15:00 p.m. nursing Building 2F Conference Room

The second time mass microscopy workshops was held on Sunday August 23

The workshop ended safely and had a great success.
Thanks to everyone who had attended the workshop.
Thank you very much at this time.

Prof. Ikegami was awarded the Young Best Presentation Award by the Japan Society for Cell Biology! Joint research using mass microscopy

In our laboratory, we are conducting research and development using mass microscopy.
Medical research using this method would be accepted, especially joint research of diseases that adult-old people are suffering.
