The BAMS group

The Biomolecular & Analytical Mass Spectrometry (BAMS) group is headed by Profs. Frank Sobott (left) and Filip Lemière (right; speaker) in the Department of Chemistry.

Our group members are international, and their funding comes from a variety of sources. We have PhD students with fellowships from FWO, IWT and UA as well as industry, and postdoc funding is also from various European sources (H2020, Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions) and industry.

Technical staff in the group fulfills a number of roles, including analysis service to internal and external customers. They also provide instrument support for BAMS equipment as well as for the core facility CeProMa and the UA-VITO collaborative Center for Proteomics (CFP), which are co-located with the group.
