6th Annual Training Workshop: Basic and Specialized Techniques in Protein Chemistry and Mass Spectrometry

August 5th – August 9th, 2019

The workshop will provide practical training in a small group environment. Additional sessions will be added in August based on demand.

Training will include:

Protein In-gel, on-bead and in-solution digestion, BioID sample preparation, IP sample preparation, Peptide digest clean-up (detergent removal, Coomassie removal) Phosphopeptide enrichment (TiO2) and analysis, 'Deep Proteomics' strategies, Bioinformatics of complex mass spectrometry data.

Mass spectrometry and LC-MS training:

Orbitrap (Q-E HF nano-LC-MSMS).

Location:  McGill University Department of Biochemistry.

Fee:  $500

Organizers:  Dr. Jason Young, Dr. Kurt Dejgaard


Capacity is limited, and registration will be first-come first-served.

Dr. Kurt Dejgaard received his PhD from the European Molecular Biology Laboratories (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany and has throughout his career worked with and developed basic and specialized techniques in protein chemistry. protein interactomics and phosphoprotein analyses. He has 12 years of experience in mass spectrometry, operating ion traps, QTOFs and Orbitraps. Dr. Dejgaard has been involved in organizing and teaching practical training courses at McGill and was teacher/instructor on 8 international FEBS practical courses in Europe through the 1990s, in the fields of cell biology and protein chemistry. Dr Dejgaard was manager of the Proteomics Core Facility at Dept of Biochemistry, McGill, from 2005 to 2011, manager of the Clinical Proteomics platform at the RI-MUHC from 2011 to 2014 and has since 2014 been director of the Mass Spectrometry Facility at Biochemistry, McGill.

Dr. Jason Young received his PhD from McMaster University. He conducted postdoctoral research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, USA, and the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried (Munich), Germany, under the supervision of Prof. F. Ulrich Hartl. He joined the Department of Biochemistry at McGill University in 2004, and was awarded a Canada Research Chair in Molecular Chaperones (Tier II). His research studies chaperone proteins including Hsp70, and addresses molecular mechanisms using protein biochemistry, the cell biology of chaperones, and protein misfolding diseases.
