2016 HPP Clinical Scientist Travel Grants

Application Deadline: June 30, 2016

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 reached out to clinical scientists or clinicians who are using or consider using proteomics for their research projects3. HPP is supporting six (6) clinical scientists with a travel grant to attend the 2016 HUPO World Congress in Taipei, Taiwan that will take place from September 18-22, 2016.

Travel grant recipients will receive 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 the HUPO 2016 congress can be found at www.hupo2016.org.

APPLICATION PROCESS 

  1. Download and complete THIS FORM (https://www.hupo.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/HPP-Clinical-Scientist-Travel-Grant-2016-fillable-form.pdf)
  2. In a separate document, write a brief description of your area of research, its relation to proteomics and the HPP, and detailed plans of how you will enhance your research with proteomics technologies (two pages maximum).
  3. Submit both items via email to office(at)hupo.org by Thursday, June 30, 2016.

Note: Winners must be HUPO members to receive the travel grant which will be provided at HUPO 2016 in Taipei in the form of a USD check.
