Virtual Podium

online - weekly : Fridays 12 - 1:30 pm PST

Due to covid-19, many of us have been impacted by the cancellation of conferences. We are not only losing the opportunity to present our research, but a chance to connect with our community. Social distancing is a MUST, but we don't distance from science! We are now meeting online every week to discuss 5-minute lightning talks from researchers on  the science of mass spectrometry-based biology.
Submission for abstracts for all sessions is here 

Session 8: COVID-19 Viral Research (May 15th),

Session 9: Metabolomics (May 22nd),



2nd annual MANA conference - MANA 2020

September 14-16, 2020           Online

University of Michigan will host the 2nd annual MANA conference, now as a virtual event. The conference will host three keynote speakers, a range of interactive workshops, surveys, oral sessions and two poster sessions. At this point in time, we are actively preparing for the conference, but details are subject to change due to our revent shift to an online event.  In the meantime, we encourage all scientists to participate in the Virtual Podium Initiative discussions as well.

The conference website will soon provide additional details.

Thanks to the MANA 2020 corporate members!

MANA Summer Symposium 2020 __ Biological interpretation of datasets

September 04, 2020    UC Davis, CA


Current metabolomics datasets may have > 1,000 identified metabolites, plus unknowns. How do we interpret such data in a biological context, beyond statistics? How do we integrate genomic or proteomic data, how do we construct and use metabolic models? How do we best map differences in lipidomic data that lack biochemical pathways?

University of Missouri: 20th annual metabolomics workshop and symposium

July 20-24, 2020                Columbia, MO

Learn how to measure and process metabolic profiles of your samples using high resolution chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry in this 5-day workshop. This will include hands-on sample preparation, derivatization, data acquisition and data analysis.  The workshop will take place Mon – Fri in the Bond Life Sciences Center.  Thursday we will host a symposium in the Monsanto Auditorium highlighting current metabolomics research.    This email address is being protected from spambots.

3rd CanMET conference is CANCELED

 Canceled due to covid-19

May 01-03, 2020    Edmonton, AB / Canada

The conference will highlight work by leading researchers, including new technologies and approaches for metabolomics research, and applications in various fields. The conference will feature networking opportunities and a poster session designed for trainees to present their work.  Our goal is to highlight the exceptional metabolomics science that is being done in Canada and abroad, and foster Canada’s leadership role in the global research community.
