The 21st IMSC in Toronto, Canada 20 - 26 August proved to be an excellent meeting for mass spectrometry and networking. The mixture of lectures, poster sessions, exhibition, workshops and hospitality suites gave the delegates plenty of opportunities to find new topics of interest and reinforce specialised subject areas.
The Thomson Medals were awarded to Scott McLuckey and Marcos Eberlin, with Yury Tsybin receiving the Curt Brunnee award.
