The University of Münster and the European Virtual Institute for Speciation Analysis (EVISA)  invite you to participate in the First Workshop on Laser Bioimaging Mass Spectrometry  - BI(MS)2 2018  - taking place from May 24 to 25, 2018 in Münster, Germany.

The workshop will bring together scientists experienced in
instrumentation, software, and applications, in an informal setting to examine recent progress in the field of bioimaging by laser mass spectrometry. Young scientists, starting to work in the area of bioimaging, will be introduced to the methodology.
