The new MaSH (Mass Spectrometry Hub) was successfully launched on July 6 following the 2nd University of Auckland Mass Spectrometry Symposium, held at the Faculty of Medical and Health Science. The symposium was keynoted by Prof Brett Nixon (University of Newcastle, Aus) and Prof Christian Hartinger (University of Auckland), with a variety of additional talks enjoyed by all. A social mixer was well attended and provided opportunities for discussion and new connections to be made. Thanks to all who participated and attended.
