ABOUT HUPO

The Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization registered in the state of New Mexico. We are an international scientific organization representing and promoting proteomics through international cooperation and collaborations by fostering the development of new technologies, techniques and training.

HUPO Mission Statement

To define and promote proteomics through international cooperation and collaborations by fostering the development of new technologies, techniques and training to better understand human disease.

Objectives

  • Foster global collaboration in major proteomics projects by gathering leading international laboratories in life sciences, bioinformatics, mass spectrometry, systems biology, pathology, and medicine;
  • Become the point of contact for proteomics research and commercialization activities worldwide;
  • Support large-scale proteomics projects that are aimed at:
      • A mechanistic understanding of fundamental biological processes (often using model organisms and non human species);
      • Directly studying human disease through proteomics techniques and technologies;
  • Coordinate and enable the fostering of communication among funding agencies and industry partners with the proteomics community and coordinate the activities of groups and organisations interested in HUPO’s Scientific Initiatives
  • Coordinate the development of standard operating procedures related to:
      • Sample preparation, analysis, and repetitions;
      • Data collection, analysis, storage, and sharing;
  • Play a leading role in:
      • Defining the location and functions of proteins in human health and disease by supporting the definition of common and specific standards for peptide and protein characterization from human and model organism specimen selection and phenotypic evaluation to data collection, storage and analysis allowing free and rapid exchange of data;
      • The creation of country-based ethical and legal policy surrounding the handling, banking and use of human tissue specimens for large-scale proteomics projects.

HUPO Diversity Statement 

The Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) is committed to fostering the diversity of its membership and activities by providing an inclusive environment regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, age, religion, presence of disabilities, educational background, and any related factors. Promoting inclusion and equity to all is essential for the long-term success of HUPO in assembling a vibrant and productive community of scientists to advance the study and practice of proteomics by means of international cooperation and collaboration for training and for development of new technologies and techniques.
