    In a new feature of the monthly HUPOST newsletter, extraordinary HUPO volunteers who lead and support many of HUPO's various Committees, Initiatives and Working Groups, are highlighted.  If you would like to volunteer with HUPO, please connect with the HUPO Office.

    HUPO Marketing and Outreach Committee (MOC)
    The MOC has been at work developing new ways to promote the HUPO mission, the visibility of proteomics within the scientific community and its popularization among the public, as well as gathering funding support.  MOC members are from different fields and backgrounds and at various career stages representing the diversity of HUPO.

    The May HUPOST features the following MOC volunteers:

    Qian Zhao is an Associate Professor at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU). She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Hong Kong in 2012 and then joined the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2017, she joined HK PolyU as an Assistant Professor in Chemical Proteomics. She currently serves as an Editorial Board member for Molecular & Cellular Proteomics and a council member in HUPO. Her research group investigates functional peptides with mass spectrometry, including non-canonical peptides translated from small open reading frames and immunopeptides. Qian holds the view that the peptidome, a subset of the proteome, holds significant promise. Her work is centered around creating new ways to find and understand these peptides, with the ultimate aim of using their potential to develop new treatments for diseases.

    Nobuaki Takemori is a Senior Assistant Professor at Ehime University. He received his B.Sc. degree in Material Science in 1997 from Nagoya Institute of Technology (Japan) and his Ph.D. degree in Material Science in 2002 from Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (Japan). After postdoctoral research from 2002 to 2009 in the US and Japan, he joined the faculty at Ehime University as a Research Assistant Professor in 2010 and was promoted to Senior Assistant Professor with tenure in 2012. He is currently a Council Member of the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) and the Japanese Proteomics Society (JPrOS) and serves as the Chief Editor of Proteome Letters, the official journal of JPrOS.

    His research group is focused on developing new proteomics technologies and their application to clinical biomarker discovery. In his own laboratory, he has developed an innovative method for the synthesis of stable isotope-labeled proteins using a wheat germ cell-free protein synthesis system in addition to establishing a high-throughput synthesis platform. Awarded the Young Investigator Award from JPrOS in 2018 for his pioneering work in the development of quantitative proteomics technologies using a wheat germ cell-free synthesis system, his technique has been extremely useful for the production of high-quality internal standard proteins in the quantitative analysis of targeted proteins by mass spectrometry, resulting in a unique impact in the field of quantitative proteomics. In recent years, he has also been actively engaged in the development of sample preparation techniques for top-down proteomics. He has successfully developed PEPPI-MS, a high-resolution fractionation technique for intact proteoforms using SDS-PAGE, and is now conducting research on top-down proteomics at high depth by combining PEPPI-MS with an ultra-high resolution mass spectrometry system.

    Upendra Chalise is a postdoctoral fellow at Dr. Jop van Berlo's lab in the University of Minnesota, where he studies cardiovascular physiology after sterile cardiac injury such as myocardial infarction and transaortic constriction in murine model. He uses cellular and plasma proteomics techniques to identify markers that can predict future progression of cardiac remodeling. His graduate work has utilized various proteomic approaches in identifying and validation potential markers and functional targets to improve cardiac outcomes after myocardial infarction. He has continued his work in his postdoctoral training in modulating inflammatory and extracellular matrix proteins to prevent adverse cardiac remodeling and heart failure progression. He is actively working to regulate immune responses after cardiac injury through identification of protein targets. Upendra currently serves as a member of the HUPO Marketing and Outreach Committee and in the Trainee Advisory Sub Committee of the Cardiovascular section of the American Physiological Society. Besides cardiovascular research, Upendra is passionate about improving academia for trainees and actively advocates for changes within academia.

    Perseverance and passion are essential ingredients for success but how do you demonstrate that you have them? Our last panel discussion featured Dr. Laurent Gatto (Associate Professor of Bioinformatics, UCLouvain), Dr. Stacy Malaker (Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Yale University), and Dr. Juan Antonio Vizcaino (Scientist and Team Leader, Proteomics, European Molecular Biology Laboratory), who shared insights into managing important career steps and building a successful career in science. Key takeaways included the importance of showcasing expertise beyond academic output, such as public code contributions and collaborative projects. Also, focus on honing technical skills relevant to your projects, and don't underestimate the value of teamwork and collaboration. Networking plays a crucial role, not only in promoting your work, through conferences, social media, or online platforms like GitHub; but it can also be fundamental for leveraging opportunities for professional growth. You can watch this and other webinars here ; you can also read Dr Laurent Gatto’s notes here.
