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 reached out to clinical scientists or clinicians who are using or consider using proteomics for their research projects. The HPP Executive Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the HPP Clinical Scientist Travel Grants. These grants are provided to a select number of scientists working in a clinically relevant field. Congratulations to the recipients, we look forward to seeing you in Vancouver!
