The 2nd annual University of Auckland Mass Spectrometry Symposium

Taking place on Friday 6 July, the Symposium will showcase a range of both cross-faculty and overseas research ranging from fertility and reproduction to anticancer drug development and illicit substances.

Professor Brett Nixon

Mass spectrometry is transforming our understanding of the chemical and biological world. Our symposium this year showcases a diverse range of applied and fundamental mass spectrometry research from overseas and across the university. Keynote speakers Professor Brett Nixon (University of Newcastle, Australia) and Professor Christian Hartinger (University of Auckland) will present their research on using mass spectrometry to investigate male fertility and anticancer drug development.

Other researchers will present a day of talks ranging from therapeutic drugs to illicit drugs, and from natural fragrances to human reproduction. There will also be talks on native mass spectrometry as well as more practical topics such as data management and automation.

Professor Christian Hartinger

This year heralds the launch of the University of Auckland Mass Spectrometry Hub (MaSH), a Strategic Research Initiative for a cross-faculty mass spectrometry community.


The scientific programme will run from 9:30am - 3:30pm and the symposium will be followed by the official launch of the University of Auckland Mass Spectrometry Hub.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the Symposium. Please RSVP by 29 June to Frederik Pruijn for catering.
