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 last seminar in the autumn term in our bi-weekly national seminar series in MS-based proteomics organized together by the Swedish National Infrastructure for Biological Mass Spectrometry (BioMS) and the SciLifeLab Integrative Structural Biology (ISB) platform was on Thursday 24th of November by Jenny Hansson at Lund University.  
We would like to thank all presenters and participants this fall, and look forward to seeing you all again on the 2nd of February 2023 when the spring seminars start. The online seminar series has been received well, and we have had 15-30 participants per seminar with exciting presentations from both academia and industry.  
Wishing you all happy holiday season!
