Swiss Group for Mass Spectrometry

The Swiss Group for Mass Spectrometry is a society that furthers interactions between scientists working in the various fields of mass spectrometry, doing basic research from gas phase ion chemistry to life sciences, in academia, industry and regulation. The SGMS was founded in 1982 (see history). Roughly two hundred individuals are listed as members. The SGMS also is an Associated Member Society of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS).

SGMS membership is open to individual persons working in the field of mass spectrometry, and to active sponsoring members. For more details, please consult the statutes of the society.


Annual meeting (2017)

The SGMS organises an annual meeting which is internationally recognised and in general we have a full house with over 120 participants. The next meeting is our 35th anniversary and will take place in the Dorint Resort Hotel Beatenberg and a surprice location on 25-26-27 October 2017. In order to celebrate our 35th meeting, we have extended the meeting with one day and we have organised a fun social event, which will take place somewhere in Berner Oberland on the Thursday. All information regarding the meeting can be found HERE! 

The meeting is an unique opportunity to network with representatives of virtually all MS labs in Switzerland. The SGMS has a long tradition of attracting top scientitst in the field of Mass Spectrometry [ List of former speakers]. Also this year we have invited top class scientists.


Student Meeting Reports

The SGMS regularly supports students with travel awards. This is possible due to our generous sponsors. One of the requirements is that the awardee writes a small report (with a nice picture). These reports can now be found online HERE!
