Advanced mass spectrometry applied to cultural heritage

University of Bordeaux

This Bordeaux 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).

The program is open to doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers, academics, as well as private and museum actors in analytical and heritage sciences. Course content combines lectures and hands-on 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 summer school offers a unique opportunity to develop strong knowledge in advanced mass spectrometry within a program which links analytical chemists, physicists, experts in formulation, computational modeling experts, conservators, restorers and archaeologists.
