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.

Wishing everyone a relaxing summer break – and see you again for new proteomics seminars in autumn 2022!
I would like to thank all presenters and participants of our bi-weekly proteomics seminar series this spring. I look forward to seeing you all again on the 15th of September 2022 when the autumn seminars start.

The seminar series initiated and organized together by the National Swedish Infrastructure for Biological Mass Spectrometry (BioMS), the SciLifeLab Integrative Structural Biology platform (ISB) and the Swedish Proteomics Society(SPS) has been received well. We have had 20-30 participants per seminar with exciting presentations and interesting discussions. The seminars this spring have been varied between junior and more senior presenters as well as an invited presentation from the SPS sister organisation Svenska masspektrometrisällskapet (SMSS). 

Wishing you all a relaxing summer!

On behalf of BioMS, SPS and the SciLifeLab ISB platform,

Lotta J. Happonen

Researcher at the Division of Infection Medicine and BioMS Lund University
Board member of the Swedish Proteomics Society
