Catchup on the latest HUPO updates in the September HUPOST:
In partnership with the European Proteomics Association’s Young Proteomics Investigators Club (YPIC), the HUPO ECR Initiative hosted its second online panel discussion on September 27th at 10AM EDT (2PM UTC). Our panelists, Dr. Kathryn Lilley (University of Cambridge), Dr. Tharan Srikumar (Bruker), and Dr. Lindsay Pino (Talus Bio), shared their insights on managing expectations between a supervisor and oneself, which sparked lively conversations with attendees in the audience. Thank you to everyone who attended, our panelists, and our panel chair, Andreas Hober (KTH Royal Institute of Technology)! If you missed the live webinar you can view the recording here.
The next panel will be on Choosing and Managing Collaborations: Do’s and Don’ts. Stay tuned for more details and registration information!
Thank you to all of those who submitted an abstract for the HUPO ReCONNECT 2021 Graduate Student Poster Competition, sponsored by Molecular Omics! We are thrilled to report that 60 Master’s and Ph.D. students have entered the running. After careful evaluations over the coming days, eight finalists will be selected and granted the opportunity to present a short talk in a dedicated session at HUPO ReCONNECT 2021 (November 15th, 20:00 UTC) and an expert committee will declare a winner ($300 prize) and two runner ups ($150 prizes). Good luck to all our participants!
The election period to vote for the HUPO Council is October 18 - November 14, 2021. All active HUPO members will receive an email containing online voting instructions on October 18. The official slate of candidates can be viewed here. Please register as a member if you wish to receive a voting ballot.
The HUPO General Assembly of Members (GAM) will take place virtually at HUPO ReCONNECT 2021. To accommodate global time zones, two online GAM sessions will be offered as follows (you do not need to attend both sessions):
All active HUPO members will receive an email containing login details to both sessions. Members are encouraged to attend.
Real-World Precision Medicine: Proteogenomics to Accelerate Drug Development and Patient Care (90minutes)
October 18, 202108:00 PDT (UTC-7), 11:00 EDT (UTC-4), 15:00 UTC
Ever since the announcement of the Precision Medicine Initiative, there have been increasing efforts to identify and understand the basis of cancer using high-throughput technologies and the development of specialized treatments for specific subtypes of cancer, based on molecular evidence. Clinical proteogenomics is an exciting opportunity to complement the gene testing-centric clinical community for precision medicine. However, translating proteomic measurements to real-world patient care requires synergy of multiple requirements: meaningful and actionable molecular characterization, clinical and analytical validation, defining diagnosis values, and meeting regulatory compliance.
Register for the webinar.
The Nominations and Elections Committee welcomes Sisi Wu as the new Co-chair, who will join Aleksandra Nita-Lazar in managing the activities of the NEC.
Dr. Wu received her Ph.D. from the Washington State University (James Bruce’s laboratory), developing novel methods for mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Between 2006 and 2008, she conducted her postdoctoral research on top-down proteomics at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) with Drs. Ljiljiana Pasa-Tolic and Richard Smith. Later, she worked as a research scientist at Battelle Toxicology Northwest (2008-2010) and a senior scientist at PNNL (2010-2014). In 2015, Dr. Wu joined the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oklahoma as an assistant professor. Sisi has nearly 20 years of experience in developing advanced top-down and bottom-up proteomics techniques to understand protein dynamics and functions in different biological systems. She is particularly interested in solving clinical and biological questions through integrating technologies in life sciences, biology, separation science, MS instrumentation, and bioinformatics. Her research program is focused on development and application of the new top-down MS and functional proteomics technologies in order to characterize intact proteins and their modified proteoforms. Sisi had been a HUPO Council member since 2019.
Join us for the HUPO ReCONNECT ECR Networking Hour on November 16th, 2021 at 21:15 (UTC)!
The ECR Networking Hour is an open forum session to bridge the digital, cultural, and continental gaps so that early career researchers can meet, share, and create connections for future collaborations and support in their job search. Participants are encouraged to engage with their cameras on and join in our icebreaker and proteomics-related networking activities. In preparation for the ECR Networking Hour, participants are also encouraged to set up a LinkedIn or Twitter handle to keep the engagement going beyond November 16th!
The HUPO Early Career Researcher Initiative is actively working on diversifying its team members to be more representative of the global proteomics community. It is with our utmost pleasure to introduce our two new members Dr. Mio Iwasaki, an Assistant Professor at Kyoto University, Japan, and Dr. Dongxue Wang, a Research Scientist at the National Center for Protein Science in Beijing, China. We look forward to their contributions moving forward! Please read more about Dr. Iwasaki and Dr. Wang below.
Mio Iwasaki is an assistant professor at the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application, Kyoto University, Japan. In March 2013, she obtained her Ph.D. in Dr. Ishihama’s lab at Kyoto University. She is now working on identifying essential post-transcriptionally regulated genes in each cell type and tissue. She is also a member of jPOST, which is the Japanese proteome database repository with a nice user interface and a quite fast data uploading system.
Dongxue Wang, is a research scientist at the National Center for Protein Science in Beijing (NCPSB), China. She was trained as a system biologist trained in mass spectrometry by Bernhard Kuster at the Technical University of Munich in Germany. After obtaining her Ph.D. in 2018, she joined NCPSB. Dongxue is developing and applying state-of-the-art proteomic methods to quantitate protein expression in tissues and bodily fluids, to better understand the human biology and diseases.
We are so excited to announce some of the mentors that are confirmed for our ECR Mentoring Session speakers for HUPO ReCONNECT 2021. The three sessions taking place throughout the conference will cover three different topics and are shaping up to be ones to remember! Check out our roster below:
