We are delighted that Dr James MacRae of the London Metabolomics Network will be attending the SMN 2018 meeting in November in Dundee. This is part of an ongoing initiative to build interactions  between national and international Metabolomics groupings. We look forward to welcoming him and hearing his talk entitled "Lipid Metabolism in apicomplexan parasites: Routes for drug therapy?"


Scottish Metabolomics Network Lab Visit Training Grants for Early Career Researchers 2018

We are pleased to be able to offer a new initiative through the SMN:  the SMN Lab Visit Training Grants. We are now seeking to award 3 or 4 Early Career Researchers from our network labs a grant to visit and train in another network lab. Applications for these grants are now invited with a Deadline of 5th October 2018, and awards will be made at the Annual Symposium in November 2018 in Dundee (details below). An application form, with more details, can be downloaded:

If you want to become a member of the SMN, you need to be a metabolomics researcher based in Scotland. We also strongly recommend you become a member of the Metabolomics Society, if you are not already a member. Just send your name, title, affiliation and links to your own/laboratory profile to Karl Burgess.
