Everyone is welcome to our community!
Who we are
We are a team of womxn dedicated to promote collaboration between researchers in the field of metabolomics. Our committee includes early-career and experienced scientists across North America. This interest group of the Metabolomics Association of North America (MANA) is chaired by Arpana Vaniya. We had our first workshop as part of the Early Career Forum during the 1st annual MANA conference, November 15-17, 2019 and a second (online) meeting during MANA 2020, September 15, 2020.
What we do
The WomiX group provides members with resources to improve networking and engagement with other womxn metabolomics researchers. We organize events, host a mentorship program and have a dedicated email list and Slack channel to provide information to members.
