The SWEDISH PROTEMICS SOCIETY (SPS) was founded in December 2001; a remarkable year that marked a historical turning point in genomic research.

The approximate 20,000 genes from a given mammalian cell forms the basis of the corresponding proteome. A single gene can produce several functional proteins that are the result of a number of differential mRNA splicing events and post-translational modifications. Such biological diversity ensures that proteomics is centrally positioned in research and general public interest, and will continue to be so in the future.

The exact number of proteins in the human proteome has been estimated at 300,000 to a few million. Undoubtedly, our scientific efforts within the proteomic research society will continue to provide additional information and contribute to answering this fundamental question.

The birth of the Swedish Proteomics Society is a natural consequence of the strong interest in protein expression profiling linked to outstanding research in the areas of biomedicine, biotechnology, and biology. Here, genomics, protein chemistry and molecular biology have been successfully combined to further proteomic and medical research within the country.

The aims of the society are to endorse activities within the proteomic field in Sweden, to interface with international proteomic programs and to develop and further promote state-of-the-art proteomic technology.


7th Nordic Proteomics Society Meeting and 20th Swedish Proteomics Society Jubilee Symposium 2023


The Swedish Proteomics Society SPS invites all scientist, healthcare sector employees, and pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies within proteomics to the Nordic Proteomics Meeting NPS 2023, which also will be the 20th SPS Jubilee Symposium. The meeting will be held at Scandic Star on the 15-17 November 2023 in Lund, Sweden.

The meeting will provide an overarching view of state-of-the-art proteomics in the Nordic countries focusing on proteomics in health, disease and biology, and includes sessions on structural proteomics, proteogenomics, clinical proteomics, precision medicine, spatial proteomics, computational proteomics and bioinformatics as well as cellular and molecular biology. Our aim is to encourage participants from academia, industry, national research societies and instrument vendors with expertise in biology, healthcare and protein science including proteomics to interact and create new collaborations between multiple disciplines and participating countries.

We will launch a new national seminar series during this autumn in a joint effort between SPS, BioMS and the SciLifeLab Integrative Stuctural 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 PhD students and postdocs, as well as more established researchers interested in proteomics. Keep an eye on the SPS homepage for more information!

European Proteomics Association European Proteomics Association


EuPA is the federation that encompasses the European national proteomic societies. It was established to coordinate and integrate national initiatives within the field of proteomics. Through education and training, the main objective is to strengthen and promote fundamental proteomic research and applications in Europe.
Human Proteome Organization Human Proteome Organization


The Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) is an international scientific consortium comprised of proteomic research organizations, academic institutions and industrial partners. HUPO's mission is to define  and promote proteomics through international cooperation and collaborations to better understand human disease. This is achieved by fostering the development of new technologies, techniques and training.
