Welcome to the Metabolomics Society Home Page. The Metabolomics Society is dedicated to promoting the growth, use and understanding of metabolomics in the life sciences. Metabolomics is a newly emerging field of "omics" research concerned with the comprehensive characterization of the small molecule metabolites in biological systems. It can provide an overview of the metabolic status and global biochemical events associated with a cellular or biological system. As such, it can accurately and comprehensively depict both the steady-state physiological state of a cell or organism and of their dynamic responses to genetic, abiotic and biotic environmental modulation.

The Metabolomics Society is an independent, non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors composed of dedicated members of the metabolomics community but ultimately responsive to its members. The Metabolomics Society's vision is to become the premier organization devoted to the development of metabolism-based research. Constituted in 2004, the Metabolomics Society now has more than a 1,000 members in more than 40 countries.
