HPP Clinical Scientist Travel Grants

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 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 the process- or disease relevant proteins2.

To accomplish these goals, the HPP is reaching out to clinical scientists or clinicians who are using or consider using proteomics for their research projects. HPP is supporting six clinical scientists with a travel grant to attend the 2015 HUPO World Congress in Vancouver, Canada that will take place from September 27 – October 1.

Travel grant recipients will receive up to USD $1,000 to offset travel and hotel costs in addition to complimentary congress registration. The recipients are expected to actively participate in the HUPO congress, particularly in the activities and discussions related to the HPP. Further information on HPP activities in Vancouver can be found here: http://hupo2015.com/program/hpp-sessions/.
