Industrial Advisory Board (IAB)

The HUPO Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) is comprised of industry partners engaged in the field of proteomics. IAB member companies meet regularly to provide valuable input on technology and product innovation to the HUPO Council and its Executive Committee for the benefit of members and to identify industry trends that will position HUPO to meet the future challenges of its partners and organization.

Membership in the IAB  facilitates communication and input between industry partners to support the proteomics community and to recognize these partners as HUPO affiliates. HUPO supports industry allies active in the development of innovative technologies and appropriate standards that are responsive to the constant changes in the scientific proteomics environment.
