WELCOME TO THE SWEDISH PROTEOMICS SOCIETY

Please join our yearly meeting in Stockholm, November 7-8, 2022

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.

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

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.
