Human Brain Proteome Project




The Human Brain Proteome Project (HBPP) is an initiative aimed  towards unveiling the brain proteome. In the 2015 HUPO meeting, the HBPP renewed its steering committee and is now defining new tasks for its future. This includes large-scale and targeted state-of-the-art proteome studies on human brain, brain-related body fluids such as CSF, pre-clinical models and follow up projects to decipher the role of proteins in brain development, health and disease.

Current lines of work:

  • Integrate neuroproteomic scientists
  • Identify molecular mechanisms and biomarkers involved in neurodegeneration and psychiatry
  • Understand the environment around the healthy human brain
  • Develop new strategies and methodological approaches for neuroproteomics
