Symposium Sessions

Session Overview

■Title
Asia-Oceania International Session: Mass Spectrometry for Life Science
■Organizer
Tomoya Kinumi (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)) / Masahiro Miyashita (Kyoto University)
■Invited
Yi-Ting Chen (Chang Gung University, Taiwan) / Dukjin Kang (Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science)
■Scope
In order to continue the activities of AOMSC (Asia-Oceania Mass Spectrometry Conference), it is important to enhance cooperation among the affiliate countries. We organized a session with speakers from the AOMSC affiliate countries from Korea, Taiwan and Japan aiming to contribute the upcoming AOMSC (2025, Ishigaki Island, Japan). This session will focus on mass spectrometry in life science, and will provide an opportunity to deepen exchanges with the mass spectrometry societies of each country through fruitful discussions.

■Title
Asia-Oceania International Session: Interdisciplinary Research Created by the Development of Mass Spectrometry
■Organizer
Ken-ichi Bajo (Hokkaido University) / Yi-Sheng Wang (Academia Sinica)
■Invited
Jiwon Lee (Korea Institute of Science and Technology) / Yi-Sheng Wang (Academia Sinica) / Yet-Ran Chen (Academia Sinica)
■Scope
Mass spectrometry has advanced through basic improvements, such as ionization, mass separation, and sample preparation techniques. The development of mass spectrometry has facilitated research in various fields, such as physics (for precise mass measurement), earth sciences (for radiometric dating), medicine, pharmaceuticals, chemistry (for identifying organic and macromolecular substances), and environmental sciences (for detecting trace substances in the environment). The scope of each research field has expanded to pioneer new interdisciplinary research with the development of mass spectrometry. In this symposium, we will present state-of-the-art developments that can foster interdisciplinary research and discuss the future potential of mass spectrometry.

■Title
"The Japan Society for Environmental Chemistry" Co-sponsored Session:
Frontiers of Environmental Screening Analysis with Informatics
■Organizer
Shunji Hashimoto (National Institute for Environmental Studies) / Shusuke Takemine (Center for Environmental Science in Saitama)
■Scope
The understanding of the actual state of environmental pollution caused by increasingly diverse chemical substances and their effects on the ecology and human health is a major mission in Environmental Chemistry. However, the ever-changing quality of the environment, the mixture of environmental samples containing various chemical substances ranging from extremely low to high concentrations, and the urgency to respond to the situation make the issue even more difficult. Recent developments in analytical technology and information science have been remarkable, and mass spectrometry informatics has attracted attention in various fields, but its introduction into the environmental field has only just begun. In this session, we would like to introduce the bold challenges to the increasingly chaotic proposition of environmental chemistry and share the challenges.

■Title
Mass Spectrometry Leading Protein Research
■Organizer
Kazumi Saikusa (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)) / Kazutaka Shimbo (Ajinomoto Co., Inc.)
■Scope
Proteins control and regulate biological reactions in living organisms, including cells and individuals. Therefore, proteomics, which elucidates the structural and functional diversity of proteins, contributes to our understanding of life phenomena. Meanwhile, in the field of biotherapeutics, such as monoclonal antibodies, mass spectrometry is one of the essential tools in development, manufacturing and quality control. In this session, we will discuss a wide range of topics from basic research to the latest techniques of mass spectrometry for proteins and biopharmaceuticals, including the prospects of protein research.

■Title
Investigations on the Origins of the Solar System and the Building Blocks of Life through Mass Spectrometry of Primitive Solar Materials and Planetary Environments
■Organizer
Yoshihiro Furukawa (Tohoku University) / Jun Aoki (RIKEN)
■Invited
Ko Hashizume (Ibaraki University)
■Scope
Mass spectrometry has been used as an essential tool for analyzing planetary materials in space and laboratories. Both approaches have contributed to our understanding of the early solar system, with many remarkable discoveries. Many solar system explorations nowadays employ mass spectrometry as a part of the analysis. This symposium introduces recent findings on the organic compounds and elements in the early solar system, including the building blocks of life in space through in-site analysis by onboard mass spectrometers and high-resolution analyses by laboratory mass spectrometers. It further discusses future perspectives on mass spectrometry in solar system exploration.

■Title
Pioneering Omics Science through the Collection and Utilization of Spectral Data
■Organizer
Hiroshi Tsugawa (Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology) / Fumio Matsuda (Osaka University)
■Scope
This session focuses on pioneering efforts in omics science through the collection and reanalysis of mass spectrometry-generated mass spectral data. Participants will discuss the utilization of MassBank and other databases and repositories that play a crucial role in the extensive accumulation, integration, and reanalysis process of mass spectrometry data. The session also emphasizes effective reanalysis of existing mass spectral data to glean new insights. It explores the application of machine learning and other advanced data analysis techniques, investigating how these approaches can contribute to omics science. Submissions are sought from researchers and technicians interested in methodologies for building and maintaining databases and repositories, the challenges and potentials in reanalyzing mass spectrometry data, and the application of innovative analytical methods, including machine learning. This session aims to provide a platform for sharing ideas and technologies to open new horizons in omics science.

■Title
Contribution of Mass Spectrometry for Precision Medicine
■Organizer
Kosuke Saito (National Institute of Health Sciences) / Yukari Tanaka (Shionogi & Co., Ltd)
■Invited
Takuya Araki (Gunma University)
■Scope
Mass spectrometry has been widely used in the biomedical field, in addition to measuring biomolecules in the body using various omics technologies as well as in drug development. By accompanying with the development of various omics, the pathological molecular mechanisms of various diseases have been elucidated, and many molecular target therapeutic drugs have been developed. Many personalized medicines using biomarkers are being practiced in clinical practice. Furthermore, it is becoming possible to provide next-generation medical care such as early diagnosis, early detection of side effects, and elucidation of mechanisms with the increased sensitivity and separation of mass spectrometers.
The purpose of this session is to share and discuss the current state of the use and contribution of mass spectrometry in personalized medicine, such as clinical diagnosis, drug development, and optimization of patient treatment.

■Title
Mass Spectrometry Techniques Supporting the Creation and Utilization of High-Value Materials
■Organizer
Takahiro Hoshi (NIPPON KAYAKU) / Ryota Watanabe (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST))
■Invited
Ryota Watanabe (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST))
■Scope
Functional materials are given high added value through processes such as the development of raw materials, the combination of additives, curing, molding, assembly and they are used as part or all of the final product. Analysis and evaluation at each step are essential and mass spectrometry which can determine molecular weight plays an important role. On the other hand, in order to achieve the purpose of analysis, it is necessary to devise methods such as sample selection, pretreatment, data analysis and to use other methods in combination. If it is difficult to perform analysis using existing methods, the creation of innovative analytical methods and equipment becomes essential. In this session, we would like to present contributions on the latest research trends in industrial materials (polymers, additives, composite materials, etc.), including pre-processing (separation and purification), mass spectrometry techniques, imaging, data analysis, and more.
