International Metabolomics Society and The Metabolomics Innovation Centre launch a joint newsletter for the global metabolomics community

EDMONTON, Canada, and BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom Sept. 26, 2013 We are pleased to announce the re-launch of MetaboNews: a newsletter published in partnership between The Metabolomics Innovation Centre and the international Metabolomics Society, to include additional news, information, and advertising for the global metabolomics community. MetaboNews now represents the one-stop-shop for the very latest and most critical news about the science of metabolomics.

Since August 2011 The Metabolomics Innovation Centre has published the newsletter, MetaboNews (, which keeps metabolomics researchers and other professionals informed about new technologies, software, databases, events, job postings, conferences, training opportunities, interviews, publications, awards, and other newsworthy items concerning metabolomics.

About The Metabolomics Society

The Metabolomics Society is an international, non-profit organization bringing together researchers from around the world interested in and excited about the development and application of metabolomics technologies across the full breadth of biological and biomedical sciences. Metabolomics is perhaps the youngest of the 'omics sciences in the post-genomics era. It aims to investigate the roles and functions of metabolites in biological, biochemical, and physiological processes. The Metabolomics Society was founded in 2004 and has since grown into a global community with almost a thousand members. This growth has been driven in part through the successes of its annual international conference, the increasing impact of its journal Metabolomics and its growing Individual and Corporate member benefits. To support this ongoing growth and to keep its members up-to-date with the latest news, publications, and events, the Board of Directors has forged a new partnership with The Metabolomics Innovation Centre, the publishers of MetaboNews.
