With members in Canada, Mexico, and the USA, the Metabolomics Association of North America values cooperation, coordination, and the advancement of the field. As of May 2018, MANA is an International Affiliate of the Metabolomics Society, with shared goals and missions in advancing metabolomics. Both organizations have their own membership, organizational structures, budgets, and event schedules.


The mission of MANA is to promote the growth and development of the field of metabolomics (broadly defined as the systems-scale study of biochemical intermediates in biological systems), particularly on the continent of North America; to provide the opportunity for association among North American researchers in metabolomics sciences and in related fields, including connections between academia and industry; to provide opportunities for presentation of research achievements and for workshops; to promote the publication of meritorious research in the field; and to carry on any other activity to benefit the better understanding of metabolism in microbes, plants, animals and humans.
