How does a legal medical expert know which kind of poison killed the victim? How to determine the PM 2.5 value? How to know if there is life in Mars? Started with these questions in our lives, Dr. Wong introduced the MS by the general application of this technology and kindly led audiences into the field of Mass-spectrometry. In the Q&A part, various questions were proposed and addressed in an interactive atmosphere. After the lecture, students enjoyed a fantastic tour to the core facility in NCPSS to get a close contact with large-scale scientific facility.
