Metabolomics Society Signs Australian, New Zealand Partnership

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Metabolomics Society has agreed to a formal plan with the Australia and New Zealand Metabolomics Network, or ANZMN, to increase their cooperation and share knowledge with the goal of promoting the development, adoption, and application of metabolomics in scientific research.

The society, an international nonprofit organization, said recently that the new memorandum of agreement it has inked with ANZMN will enable the partners to work more closely on their common goals of advancing and promoting the use of metabolomics in research in the New Zealand and Australian regions.

The society said that partnerships such as this one will make both groups more effective, will promote public awareness of their resources, such as publications, services, and information, and will enable them to communicate to plan conferences, workshops, and training programs for scientists from across the biological sciences.
