    I am truly honoured and grateful to accept the role of HUPO President for the term 2023-2024.  Thank you for the confidence placed in me and the entire HUPO Executive Committee (EC) team to continue to build our legacy.  I also want to acknowledge the extraordinary leadership provided by Yu-Ju Chen and the previous HUPO Executive.  Their work and dedication, particularly with the Strategic Plan, has moved the association into a new era.  Together with the EC, I look forward to serving the HUPO membership and advancing a number of HUPO activities and initiatives.

    HUPO boasts a number of distinctive strengths, namely the powerful passion and tireless work of its volunteers on various committees and initiatives with diversity and inclusion.   These individuals together with HUPO’s management team, have realized a number of significant accomplishments over the past seven years including a 38% increase in financial assets, a 143% increase in membership, 122% increase in Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) members, highly successful virtual and in-person annual congresses, the digital HUPOST newsletter, implementation of the Proteomics Knowledge Resource (PKR), use of social media platforms, the establishment of the Early Career Researcher (ECR) Initiative and much more.

    In looking to the future and how we can continue to build on our accomplishments, a Strategic Plan Working Group completed a thorough review of HUPO and focused on new aspirations that would create a better HUPO in the future.  The most important aspirational goals were prioritized with the following major initiatives being developed to help attain these goals:

    Expand the impact of proteomics in science.
    • Develop and enable HUPO ambassadors
    • Expand social media including the online presence of HUPO
    • Support the next phase of human proteome projects and other new initiatives
    • Collect and use “Success Stories” to support several goals
    Bring the clinical world into HUPO and HUPO into the clinical world.
    • Outreach and support programs across translation and clinical applications
    Support and facilitate education.
    • Create Best Practice recommendations for wet lab and dry (computational) lab workflows
    • Create and make available educational material and training courses
    • Expand outreach for educational programs outside the annual congress
    Facilitate inclusive and diverse leadership at all levels of the HUPO organization.
    • Leadership training opportunities
    • Early and mid-career support for academia and industry paths
    Improve the funding structure and mechanisms of the organization.

    Every day, I am impressed by this extraordinary community that nurtures a culture of mutual care and international pride, and is dedicated to making life better for everyone who is touched by the work of thousands of individuals involved with proteomics.  Each day, I see the brilliance, passion and commitment of so many and am inspired to continue strengthening and building this organization so it continues to flourish well into the future.   HUPO has a remarkable story to tell, and I am eager to share it far and wide. I hope you will join me in continuing to propel HUPO and the proteomics community forward.

    HUPO President 2023-2024

    It was truly a great honor and an inspiring journey to serve as the HUPO President in the past two years. Looking back at the period of 2021-2022, the COVID-19 global pandemic continuously caused economic and social disruption, and seriously interrupted research projects, restricted travel and closed the borders of many countries, thus creating challenges for the congress organization and financial sustainability of HUPO.

    “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." ~ African Proverb

    When I started this unexpected journey two years ago, I was indeed full of worry if I was able to continue the previous great leadership in order to move forward and achieve transformative changes for the future of HUPO. I sincerely appreciate the great mentorship from past President Steve Pennington and past Vice President Susan Weintraub. At that time, I shared my firm belief that joint wisdom and collaborative efforts always inspire new ideas with success beyond the expectation of a single mind. It is truly admirable how passionate and committed many of the volunteers on HUPO committees and Council have been to the organization. The HUPO Executive Committee, all Committees, Council and HPP Executive Committee actively maintained the activities, expanded promotion worldwide and continued the research of the human proteome. For the benefit of members, HUPO continues to create new resources including the Proteomics Knowledge Resource (PKR), proteomics tutorial videos and stories from HUPO members. It is nice to see that HUPO is approaching a stable status with 1100+ members from 57 countries and 36 national societies.

    Despite the pandemic challenges, somehow we learned to find a way to adapt to the environmental stress. Following the first HUPO Connect 2020 virtual congress, we had another successful virtual HUPO ReConnect 2021 with a record number of 1300 attendees. After two virtual meetings, we were finally able to meet each other and enjoy a great scientific program and fantastic social networking at the first in-person HUPO Congress in beautiful Cancun. A big thank you to Serio Encarnación-Guevara and Luis Manuel Teran who lead the Congress Organization Committee and the ICS team. Most importantly, it is the active participation of our members and great support from the industry sponsors who contributed to the congress's success  with 900+ attendees.

    Under the supervision of HUPO Treasurer Peter Hoffmann and joint efforts from past congress organizers, industry sponsors, HUPO members as well as the support from regional/national societies, available budget was directed to support future HUPO activities. The HUPO EC approved utilizing the available budget to formalize a way of supporting its committees and initiatives through funding requests. 

    In 2021, we celebrated HUPO’s 20th anniversary. To move forward with a modern version to advance proteome knowledge and accelerate proteomics research in the next 10 years, one of the most important tasks we completed in 2022 was the launch of the HUPO Strategic Plan. I take this opportunity to thank Secretary-General Henning Hermjakob, facilitator Ian Wright and the working group with representatives from HUPO EC, Committees, and the three regions who provided the final recommendations for education/training, increasing HUPO visibility, creating resources, improving funding, and external networking. Translating proteomics into utility, such as in the clinical community, is not a trivial issue. What we can really do for the next generation research, is to bridge both HUPO and the clinical community and partner with policy. The HPP Grand Project, aiming to explore the function of every protein, is the new phase of the HUPO Proteome Project and it is a great linkage to outreach to the global biomedical community.

    Despite many successes in proteomics technology and discovery, there remains much to be done to demonstrate the value of proteomics to create benefits in our lives, such as clinical care, prevention medicine, precision agriculture, and food safety. I continue to encourage all HUPO members and everyone who loves proteomics from different parts of the world, to work together and create successful proteomics stories in the future.   

    Finally, I want to express my most sincere appreciation to Henning Hermjakob who has been the major driver to promote HUPO affairs, Chelsea Prangnell and Michele O’Bright from ICS to maintain the operation of the HUPO office during my term. I am also delighted to welcome the new leadership of President Jennifer Van Eyk and the new HUPO Executive Committee. In the Chinese zodiac, Rabbit is the symbol for 2023, representing smartness, speed, momentum and longevity. With Jennifer’s signature warmth, energy and passion, and the launch of the HUPO Strategic Plan, I would like to express my best wishes and look forward to fruitful achievements and growth of the HUPO community in 2023 and beyond.

    The HUPO Education and Training Committee (ETC) presents: The Essence of Data Visualization: How to Create Effective Figures of Your Data

    Date/Time:  January 31, 2023 - 16:00-17:30 (Central European Time/Zurich)

    Stimulated by a huge audience and feedback after the first ETC Auditorium on proteomics and academic writing, we are happy to announce our second speaker, Martin Krzywinski.

    Martin Krzywinski works in bioinformatics, data visualization, science communication and the interface of science and art. He applies design, both data and artistic, to assist discovery, explanation and engagement with scientific data and concepts. Martin’s information graphics have appeared in the New York Times, Wired, Scientific American and covers of numerous books and scientific journals such as Nature and Genome Research. He is going to elaborate on how small changes to critical elements can turn a muddled figure into one that is clear and concise.

    More about Martin:

    Submit your figures and posters to Martin’ s dropline for redesign and discussion. The more you send in, the better. There are no bad figures, only figures waiting to be made better:
