UM Hosted MANA 2020 Conference

On September 14 - 16, 2020 The University of Michigan virtually hosted MANA 2020 an online 2nd annual conference of the Metabolomics Association of North America with over 400 attendees from US, Canada, Mexico and beyond. 

Dr. Alla Karnovsky (DCMB) and Dr. Kathleen Stringer (Pharmacy, Internal Medicine and CCMB) were the organizers of the conference. The conference featured six outstanding plenary talks by Dr. Amy Sims (PNNL), Dr. Nima Sharifi (Cleveland Clinic), Dr. Charles Serhan (Harvard), Dr. Ian Lewis (Univ. of Calgary), Dr. Wassim Labaki (University of Michigan) and Dr. Joshua Rabinowitz (Princeton), parallel oral sessions and interactive poster sessions with virtual rooms dedicated to each poster.  Organizing a virtual conference of this magnitude is very challenging and it would not have been possible without expert help and IT support by Aaron Bookvich (DCMB).
