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 disease 1. 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 proteins 2.
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. Further information on the HUPO 2016 congress can be found at www.hupo2016.org.
We are pleased to congratulate the 2016 HPP Clinical Scientist Travel Grant winners:
Peter Bergsten, Sweden
Michael Chen, Canada
David Herrington, USA
Ana Konvalinka, Canada
Vinayak Nagaraja, Australia
Zhiwei Qiao, Japan
