LC-MS - A Hands on Approach - Kenya (August 2022)

22 - 26 August 2022, Nairobi, Kenya


Introduction
This workshop is supported by GSK as part of our multi-year partnership to enhance the capabilities of African scientists in modern analytical techniques. We will train more than 400 African scientists, as well as training Local Trainers to train others, leaving a self-sustaining programme and a lasting legacy.

The Pan Africa Chemistry Network was set up by the Royal Society of Chemistry to advance the chemical sciences across Africa by building a self-sustaining science base. This expanded analytical science training programme will develop your practical analytical techniques to solve local challenges and contribute to global scientific knowledge.

Applications are invited for the above training course; we welcome applications from researchers, lecturers, technicians, MSc students and PhD students in the chemical sciences from Universities and research institutions across Africa.

This training course will cover the practical aspects of Liquid Chromatography, method development, quantitative analysis and spectral interpretation of LC-MS..
