HPP Clinical Scientist  Travel Grants

The Human Proteome Project (HPP) was established by the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) to explore the human proteome and to enable the routine, reliable and broad application of state-of the-art measurements of proteins and proteomes by life scientists and clinicians studying the molecular mechanisms of biological processes and human disease1. This will be accomplished through the generation of laboratory and informational resources that support both research and routine measurement of biological process- and/or disease-relevant proteins2.

To accomplish these goals, the HPP is reaching out again to clinical scientists or clinicians who are using or are considering using proteomics technologies for their research projects. The HPP is supporting five (5) clinician-scientists with a travel grant to attend the 2019 HUPO World Congress in Adelaide, Australia that took place from September 15-19, 2019.

We are pleased to congratulate the 2019 HPP Clinical Scientist Travel Grant recipients:

  • Qing Kay Li, USA
  • Rei Noguchi, Japan
  • Iris Kassem, USA
  • Tu Ngoc Nguyen, Australia
  • Soren Naaby-Hansen, Denmark
