2018 CASMS Networking Night
The 66th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics was held at the San Diego Convention Center from June 3-7, 2018. As in previous years, the Chinese American Society for Mass Spectrometry (CASMS) successfully held the Monday Networking Night. This event is intended to not only promote academic and social interaction among senior Chinese MS professionals, who are leading researchers in various sectors of academia and industry, but also to improve collaboration among our CASMS community.
