After closely monitoring the COVID 19 pandemic global risk assessment by the World Health Organization, on behalf of the HUPO Executive Committee, we wish to share with you that the HUPO 2021 annual congress, originally scheduled for October 24-28, 2021 in Stockholm, Sweden will take place as a hybrid congress on November 15-19, 2021 with an anticipated opportunity for an in-person networking component in Stockholm, Sweden if conditions allow.
While HUPO Connect 2020 was a great success as a virtual congress, the feedback we have received suggests we are all keen to meet in person again. The decision to postpone this year’s congress to November was made to increase the chance of having an in-person component to complement the virtual offering. So, building on the success of HUPO’s first virtual meeting ‘HUPO Connect 2020’, we are organizing HUPO ReCONNECT 2021.
We will continue to closely monitor WHO, local and national health and travel recommendations in hopes of offering a safe, in-person networking component.
Whether fully virtual or with an in-person component, we are aiming to provide the best HUPO congress ever. With an exciting scientific program, strong Early Career Researcher (ECR) involvement, and innovative virtual networking opportunities, you won’t want to miss HUPO ReCONNECT 2021!

In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.
Yu-Ju Chen, HUPO President on behalf of the HUPO Executive Committee

HUMAN PROTEOME PROJECT (HPP)
The Human Proteome Project (HPP) is an international project organized by HUPO that aims to revolutionize our understanding of the human proteome via a coordinated effort by many research laboratories around the world. It is designed to map the entire human proteome in a systematic effort using currently available and emerging techniques. Completion of this project will enhance understanding of human biology at the cellular level and lay a foundation for development of diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic, and preventive medical applications. > More on the HPP
