Benefits of Affiliation

Metabolomics Society International Affiliations

The Metabolomics Society seeks the opportunity to work more closely with both regional and national metabolomics communities, to jointly advance and promote the development, adoption and application of metabolomics approaches in scientific research.

Accordingly, the Board of Directors has developed a framework to establish more formal relationships with established metabolomics organizations or networks. The Society anticipates that these relationships will enhance both parties' effectiveness and promote public awareness of one another's resources, such as publications, services and electronic information, and to communicate with one another in a timely manner regarding the planning of conferences to maximize synergies and advertising. Another important aim is to pursue joint initiatives of mutual benefit, such as organizing application-specific metabolomics meetings as well as training opportunities for scientists at all levels and from all biological disciplines.

We welcome enquires from already established regional or national metabolomics organizations who share a mission to further the advancement of metabolomics science, in line with the mission of the international Metabolomics Society.

*All members of the Metabolomics Society that are graduate students (Masters or PhD) or within 5-years post PhD while being in a training position (e.g. post-doc) are considered Early-Career scientists. In certain cases where someone if beyond the 5-year post-PhD limit, exceptions can be made if time off was taken for personal reasons (e.g. family, career break). Any persons with 5-years full-time work experience (or equivalent) after obtaining their PhD shall not be considered an Early Career scientist.
