Upcoming seminars

MSACL x CNPN webinar

CNPN is collaborating with the Association for Mass Spectrometry & Advances in the Clinical Lab (MSACL) for this special June webinar. Dr. Philipp Lange (University of British Columbia) will present how the identification of therapeutic targets at the protein and pathway level by mass spectrometry-based proteomics can elucidate possible treatment targets. Specifically, he will discuss analytical and systems challenges and propose possible strategies to smooth the path to full clinical translation. Don’t miss this exciting seminar – register for free, today!
