On 7th November 2017 our Founder and CEO dr. Maurice Janssen presented a colloquium on MS-PECD at the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM) of the Sciences Faculty of the Radboud University Nijmegen. 
Since the spring of 2017 the MS-PECD laboratory, that was formerly in the academic group of our CEO at LaserLaB Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, is located and embedded within the Molecular and Laser Physics group of prof. David Parker at IMM in Nijmegen. Here the R&D on laser-based MS-PECD will be continued in the direction of fundamental studies of multi-component chiral mixtures, as well as in more applied analytical directions of chiral molecules in Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Sciences, Food and Fragrances, Pesticides and the role of chiral chemicals in the bio-ecosphere.

Prof. Ivan Powis, University of Nottingham, one of the founders of the field of PhotoElectronChiralDichroism and special advisor of our company MassSpecpecD BV, was present during the lecture in Nijmegen for further discussions and a collaborative research project executed at the University of Amsterdam (dr. Wim Roeterdink and prof. Wybren Jan Buma) and Nijmegen, within the LaserLabEurope access program
