The symposium Celebration of Native Mass Spectrometry was held in Oxford, 24-26th March 2019, with 160 participants. Prof. Carol Robinson opened the conference with a plenary lecture entitled Native MS – Past, Present, Future. The symposium covered the application of native MS in structural biology, biopharma characterization and membrane protein analysis, as well as theoretical considerations on proteins in the gas phase. The last session provided an outlook on the future of structural MS, native top-down and new methods & workflows. Remain Creative with Native was the motto of the closing plenary lecture given by Prof. Albert Heck. Other talks: Ken Cook on chromatographic separation coupled to native mass spectrometry; Therese Wohlschlager on native MS unravelling highly complex glycosylation patterns in therapeutic proteins.
