2016 MSACL Trainee Travel Award

Congratulations to both Amy Chan, PhD (Clinical Chemistry Fellow) and Max Marin Jr., MD (PGY3 resident) for winning the 2016 MSACL Trainee Award!

This grant is for MD/Residents/Fellows, PhD students, Post-docs and young faculty members (less than 4 years since appointment) who are in training to direct a clinical Lab and are interested in acquiring a greater understanding of the value of mass spectrometry as a tool for use in the clinical laboratory setting.

About MSACL  

The Association for Mass Spectrometry: Applications to the Clinical Lab (https://www.msacl.org/index.php) is a US-based organization dedicated to the accelerating the implementation of Mass Spectrometry in the Clinical Lab.  

The MSACL Conference provides a forum for discussion of developments in the clinical application of mass spectrometry. While immunoassay methods have dominated clinical analyses, mass spectrometric methods are now providing analytical results more rapidly and with less-expense. MSACL brings together experts in the field with those driven to explore and understand clinical mass spectrometry, with the goal of facilitating mass spectrometry's adoption as a health care tool and accelerating the realization of improved patient care and reduced health care costs.
