Thank you for your nominations!
After close monitoring of the global risk assessment by the World Health Organization of the COVID-19 pandemic, on behalf of the HUPO Executive Committee, Swedish Proteomics Society, Swedish Pharmaceutical Society and the HUPO 2020 Local Organizing Committee, we wish to share with you today that the HUPO 2020 World Congress (HUPO 2020), originally scheduled on October 18-22, 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden will be postponed to October 24-28, 2021. The location (Waterfront Congress Centre in Stockholm, Sweden) will remain the same.
The postponement was based on multiple factors, including but not limited to, the current travel restrictions put in place and, importantly, the toll currently being placed on our health care community. These restrictions significantly affect the ability of delegates, speakers, presenters, sponsors and exhibitors to participate fully in HUPO 2020. This decision also underlines our commitment to containing the virus and preventing further sickness and loss of life, as per WHO recommendations.
Although the postponement comes as a great disappointment, we are ready to embrace the challenge! We want to ensure you stay connected with what's happening in proteomics, which is why our team is excited to announce the first-ever international HUPO virtual experience! We will be providing a series of virtual meetings in fall of 2020 which amongst the sessions planned will include one to highlight the role of proteomics in tackling many key aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to the rapidly evolving nature of the pandemic, we invite all delegates and industry partners to read our FAQs and monitor your emails, as well as the congress website, for specific information on the new Congress timeline.
The Local Organizing Committee with the support of the Swedish Proteomics Society, Swedish Pharmaceutical Society and HUPO are committed to bringing you a HUPO World Congress as never before and look forward to seeing you in 2021!
In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.
Don't miss the chance to submit your candidacy to become a HUPO Council member for a three-year term (2021-2023). Complete the 2020 Elections Nomination Form (available here) and submit it to email@example.com before 30 April 2020.
The current council list can be found here:2020 HUPO Council Election
The deadline to receive nominations is 30 April 2020.

Biomolecular pathways are a key tool to put proteomics results into context, and pathway databases are often the first port of call to make sense of long lists of identifications and quantitations. Reactome (https://reactome.org)  is an open source, open data knowledge base of curated human pathways. While Reactome employs full time curators, we depend critically on voluntary domain experts who provide their time and knowledge to ensure quality and coverage of the pathways annotated in the database. Similar to manuscript reviewers, these essential community contributors are hard to attract, and the Reactome team would like to reach out to the HUPO community to contribute to the extension and validation of Reactome content. Recently, we have added features that allow to search for contributors by name, and for them to claim their contributions to their ORCID (https://orcid.org/) profile with a few clicks , contributing to efforts to provide credit for open data.
So, if you have a favorite pathway, please check if it’s already perfect in Reactome, and if not, click on https://reactome.org/community/collaboration to provide your expertise, and to support your future pathway analysis!
When you give presentations please disseminate this important message- using the slides included here.

On February 5 – 7, 2019 the Continuing Education Programmes (CEP) at IIT Bombay hosted a Proteomics course titled “Proteomics: Sample Preparation, Mass Spectrometry and Data Analysis”. Participants prepared their own samples for protein identification, label-free quantification and iTRAQ-based quantitative proteomics analysis. While the participants learnt new techniques, the proteomics team from IIT did meta data analysis, results for coverage and reproducibility in assays. Click here to view the event photos.
A Message from hPOP - Assay Invite
The hPOP project to profile people from around the world has been highly successful in the sample collection. We have collected samples from each of the three regions: Boston (Pilot n = 31 individuals), Taipei (N = 106), Dublin (n = 115), Orlando (n = 84). Plus to increase North American numbers we have collected samples from the Bay area (n = 40).
We are now ready for the analyses. On a google spread sheet we list possible assays. We are looking for volunteers to help carry them out. Feel free to suggest additional assays. Our goal is to get these assays done in the next 2-3 months and then analyze the data and present the results at the next HUPO meeting in Australia. The analyses will take some time because there is lots to do we need to do age correction, BMI, etc. We suggest discussing results/analyses on consortium calls starting in January. Note the Snyder lab signed up for many assays but if there are volunteers to take over some of them that would be fine (we want to make sure that a basic set of analyses is done).
We are also building an interactive database to get the data back to participants.
1. Please sign up for assays on the google spread sheet here.
2. Send any and all comments to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let us know if you would like to participate in any of the consortium calls. This is a very unique project and open access resource-we hope to get a high profile paper out of this.
