A PhD student supervised by the esteemed Prof Ian Dubery at UJ’s Biochemistry Department has been appointed as the secretary of the International Metabolomics Society’s Early-career Members Network (EMN) Committee.

Fidele Tugizimana delivered two poster-presentations from his doctoral research, and co-organized and chaired a workshop on the importance of experimental design, data acquisition and quality assurance in metabolomics at the Society’s 12th Annual International Conference that was held in June 2016 in Dublin, Ireland, in addition to chairing one of the young scientists’ sessions.

Tugizimana was further selected to be also part of the Society’s Strategy Task Group, and together with the Dean of UJ’s Faculty of Science, Prof Debra Meyer, he serves as a member of the international organizing committee for the 13th edition of the annual conference which will take place this winter in Brisbane, Australia.
