The Human Proteome Project (HPP) was established by the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) to explore the human proteome and to enable the routine, reliable and broad application of state-of the-art measurements of proteins and proteomes by life scientists and clinicians studying the molecular mechanisms of biological processes and human disease1. This will be accomplished through the generation of laboratory and informational resources that support both research and routine measurement of biological process- and/or disease-relevant proteins2.
To accomplish these goals, the HPP is reaching out again to clinical scientists or clinicians who are using or are considering using proteomics technologies for their research projects. The HPP is supporting five (5) clinician-scientists with a travel grant to attend the 2019 HUPO World Congress in Adelaide, Australia that will take place from September 15-19, 2019.
Travel grant recipients will receive USD $1,000 to offset travel and hotel costs in addition to complimentary HUPO2019 Congress registration. Travel grant recipients are expected to actively participate in the HUPO Congress, as well as the Human Proteome Project sessions on the Sunday prior to and the “future” workshop on the Thursday immediately after the Congress. Awardees may be invited to join HUPO/HPP panel discussions or to chair sessions. The goal of these HPP discussions is to gain insight and feedback particularly relevant to human disease and to increase the visibility of the Human Proteome Project.
