Human Proteome Organization
The Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) is an international consortium of national proteomics research associations, government researchers, academic institutions, and industry partners. The organization was founded in June 2001 and it promotes the development and awareness of proteomics research, advocates on behalf of proteomics researchers throughout the world, and facilitates scientific collaborations between members and initiatives. Ultimately, it is organized to gain a better and more complete understanding of the human proteome.
Key members, past and present
The HUPO organizes one international congress each year, with past congresses held in Taiwan in 2016 and in Vancouver 2015.
HUPO awards multiple awards each year, among them the Distinguished Service Award, Translational Proteomics Award, Science & Technology Award, Discovery in Proteomic Sciences Award, and the Distinguished Achievement Award in Proteomic Sciences.
