Join us for the 9th International Symposium on Metallomics

June 17th – 21st 2024 Bush House, London, UK


Virtual registration is open until 17th June 2024.

Welcome to ISM9!


The growing field of metallomics signifies more than the study of metals in biological systems. It shows us how the width and depth of the periodic table – inextricably woven into the fabric of life – is a Rosetta Stone for ground-breaking scientific discovery. Metallomics has the power to bridge cross-discipline and sector gaps to foster more effective science, crucial in a world where the need for real solutions to complex human and environmental issues persist.

Our theme for ISM9 is sustainability, addressing how we can have a sustainable research impact through breaking scientific and cultural silos, whilst engaging a wider community to support meaningful and directed collaborations in this evolving field. Four overarching tracks for metals in Human Health, Environmental Health, Emerging Enabling Technologies, and Sustainability & Regeneration will facilitate rich discussions for new horizons in metallomics research among academic and clinical researchers, industry, and the commercial sectors.
