Supporting the research in the current pandemic scenario. COVID-19 Mass Spectrometry Coalition is a network of more than 500 international mass spectrometry laboratories and facilities.

A letter recently published in "The Lancet" describes in detail this initiative and its objectives.


Italian Metabolomics Network

The Italian Metabolomics Network (IMN) aims at bringing together people with different backgrounds actively working in the field of metabolomics, and, more broadly, in the study of metabolism.
The objective is to promote networking, by offering opportunities for discussion, collaboration, training and exchanges between the participants.

Italian traslation of the book "Mass Spectrometry", author J. Gross

This book is designed to be a guide to mass spectrometry, starting from the first steps until it becomes a daily research and work. Starting from the principles of ionization in the gas phase and by the elemental isotopic properties, we will explain the design of mass analyzers, the interpretation of mass spectra and the applied ionization methods. The book concludes with chapters on coupling chromatography-mass spectrometry and with a chapter on inorganic mass spectrometry. In total it comprises fifteen chapters that can be read independently one from the other.
