About OMSS

The annual Ohio Mass Spectrometry Symposium (OMSS) was initiated in 2003 to promote opportunities for academic and industrial researchers in the region to present their findings, share information, discuss research challenges with colleagues, and spark new collaborations in the field of mass spectrometry. OSU’s Campus Chemical Instrumentation Center (CCIC) has served as host for the annual symposium, with support from generous sponsors.

Bringing mass spectrometry and metabolomics together (OMSMS)

In 2017, the OSU Foods for Health initiative held an inaugural Conference on Food and Nutritional Metabolomics. With shared interests and synergies, Foods for Health joined forces with CCIC to hold the conference jointly with OMSS from 2017-2020, for a combined event titled the Ohio Mass Spectrometry and Metabolomics Symposium (OMSMS). In 2021, Foods for Health will host MANA 2021, and CCIC will continue the partnership, presenting the 18th Annual OMSS as “Mass Spec Mornings” in conjunction with MANA. The 18th Annual Ohio Mass Spectrometry Symposium will be held virtually in conjunction with the 3rd annual Metabolomics Association of North America conference. Please join us for “Mass Spec Mornings” on October 19-20, 2021. Please visit the MANA conference website for the full MANA conference program and registration information.
