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.
