The Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) condemns, in the strongest terms, the military invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation, and deplores the resulting loss of life and humanitarian impact, as well as the involvement of Belarus in this unlawful use of force against Ukraine.
We urge all HUPO members to offer opportunities for support, scientific research and collaboration to Ukrainian scientists, whether abroad, displaced or under threat in their home country, and recommend highlighting these opportunities through HUPO channels as well as portals like https://scienceforukraine.eu/.
In show of support, at the 2022 HUPO Annual World Congress in Cancun, Mexico, HUPO is offering membership, travel and attendance awards for students and all levels of proteomic scientists from Ukraine. These awards will provide opportunities for attending the education sessions, networking and developing professional relationships within the proteomics community despite the challenging status in their home country.
As a global scientific organisation, HUPO supports the principles of the universality of science (https://council.science/5-universality-of-science). It is therefore key to note that our colleagues in Russia will maintain their individual positions and roles within HUPO, and will continue to have, as individuals, full access to all HUPO information and activities. Indeed, as a scientific organisation, with engagement, inclusivity, and transparency at our core, we do not condone any actions by anyone against any individuals simply because of their country of origin or residence.

Dr. Sayantani Chatterjee is a Post-Doctoral Associate in Prof. Joseph Zaia’s research group in Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Her current research focuses on exploring viral glycoproteomics, particularly of influenza and SARS-CoV-2 viruses, using high-throughput mass spectrometry, to aid in the development of effective therapeutics. Previously, she completed her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Morten Thaysen-Andersen from Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia where she investigated the structure, function, and involvement of mannose-terminating glycoproteins in cancer, innate immunity and pathogenic infections.
Ireshyn Govender is a senior researcher in the Molecular Diagnostics and Omics group at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), South Africa. He started his career at CSIR in 2013 as a candidate researcher, where his research focused on clinical proteomics in HIV/AIDS-based precision medicine. His Ph.D. was completed in 2019 at the University of the Witwatersrand. Ireshyn is also an application specialist at ReSyn Biosciences where he develops novel sample preparation workflows for biofluid-based clinical proteomics. He is a member of clinical research groups that use proteomics to address diseases that are prominent in South Africa and underrepresented populations by identifying prognostic and/or diagnostic protein biomarker panels. He is also an executive committee member of the South African Association for Mass Spectrometry (SAAMS).
Charlotte Hutchings is a PhD student in Kathryn Lilley's laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Having completed her BSc and MSc at Imperial College London, Charlotte's primary interest lies in the optimization of gene therapy vectors. It was this interest that led Charlotte to enter the world of proteomics where she now applies novel spatial proteomics methods to understand the mechanism by which adeno-associated viral vectors (used in approved gene therapies) are secreted from HEK293 producing cells. The aim of this work is to optimize the manufacturing of such vectors in collaboration with AstraZeneca. Outside of her project, Charlotte participates in public outreach events and acts as a STEM Ambassador for the North East region of England. She is also a member of the British Society for Proteome Research and the Biochemical Society and is continuing to expand her network.
Santosh Misal is a Proteomics Scientist at the Laboratory of Malaria, Immunology, and vaccinology (LMIV), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda MD, USA. He manages a small proteomics facility and provides support to the LMIV investigators for the malaria biomarker discovery and vaccine development pipeline. He utilizes various proteomics approaches including chemical labeling, crosslinking, and single-cell protein analysis to identify parasite protein targets for vaccine development. Before joining NIH, he was a postdoctoral scientist at Brigham Young University and Indiana University Bloomington. Santosh obtained his Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry from Savitribai Phule Pune University, India with a strong interest in protein analysis.

The HUPO ECR Initiative is excited to welcome two new members to its organization: Jessica Del Castillo Alferez, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, and Isabell Bludau, a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Germany. Learn more about these two up-and-coming researchers below.
Jessica Del Castillo Alferez is a Ph.D. candidate at Sanquin Research Amsterdam and the University of Utrecht, Netherlands. Her research focuses on the development of plasma peptidomics and proteomics approaches to unravel fundamental aspects of haemostasis. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry at UDLAP, Mexico with a one-year exchange at McGill University, Canada. After this, she moved to the Netherlands where she completed a Master’s program in Molecular Medicine at the University of Groningen. During her Master’s internship, she entered the field of clinical proteomics while investigating proteomic adaptations of asymptomatic MCADD. Jessica is part of the Symphony Consortium, which aims to improve treatment for bleeding disorders by addressing interindividual variation in bleeding tendency. As part of Symphony, her Ph.D. project seeks to link the proteome to the bleeding phenotype with the use of plasma and blood cell profiles to study modifiers of haemostasis.
