Dr. Mark Baker from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia is the current chair of the Human Proteome Project (HPP) and a former HUPO president. Listen to his words on how the combined efforts of HUPO, HPP and the global community of scientists has positioned us to further precision medicine.

Proteomics is a rapidly growing field of science and many new methods and technologies are constantly under development. The Swedish Proteomics Society organizes educational activities that aid scientists and students to expand their knowledge and interact with leading experts in the field.
We will organize our next workshop in conjunction with the 15th annual meeting to be held in Gothenburg from 21-22 November 2016.

Read more on our previous workshop in quantitative proteomics that was held on 22-23 August 2015. The event was very popular with more than 25 participants.

The 9th YPIC webinar "OCTOPUS: The new primary research record!" will
take place on the 17th September at 10 AM CEST. Join us for this
interesting introduction!

Dr Alexandra Freeman spent 17 years making science and natural history
documentaries at the BBC before taking on a role as Executive Director
of the Winton Centre for Risk & Evidence Communication at the University
of Cambridge. After seeing the scientific publishing system ‘from the
inside’ she came up with the idea for Octopus, a system designed to
change the incentive structure for the dissemination of research.

Octopus received funding and support from the UK’s governmental
science funder earlier this year and is being built in partnership with
the educational digital infrastructure provider Jisc for launch in
spring 2022. Join us if you want to know how Octopus can revolutionize
the scientific world!

You can find more information here.

We will launch a new national seminar series during this autumn in a joint effort between SPS, BioMS and the SciLifeLab Integrative Structural Biology (ISB) platform to promote Swedish mass spectrometry-based proteomics research. The overall goal is to provide a platform for sharing knowledge and methods as well as to increase new collaborations between different researchers. The main target audience are Ph.D. students and postdocs, as well as more established researchers interested in proteomics. Keep an eye on the SPS homepage for more information!
