    Deadline extended to June 1st

    The clock is ticking, and this is your last chance to seize the spotlight and share your ground-breaking work! The 3-Minute Thesis Competition challenges you to condense your research findings into a compelling and concise presentation, delivering it in just three minutes using a single static slide.

    Whether you're investigating novel biomarkers, unraveling complex protein interactions, or developing cutting-edge analytical techniques, your research deserves to be heard and celebrated. The 3-Minute Thesis Competition allows you to distill your work to its essence and effectively communicate its significance to a non-specialist audience.

    Selected finalists will have the exciting opportunity to compete in the final showdown, to be held during a dedicated session at HUPO 2023 Busan (September 17-21). To participate, simply submit a lay abstract via the HUPO 2023 abstract submission portal without scientific jargon that describes your Ph.D. thesis research topic for a general, non-expert audience. Abstract text should not exceed 300 words and entrants must be enrolled in a Ph.D. program.

    Submit your abstract here.

    Deadline extended to June 1st

    Last call to participate in the HUPO 2023 Poster Competition! This is your chance to showcase your research findings, innovative methodologies, and exciting discoveries to a global audience. All graduate students (Master’s and Ph.D.), as well as postdocs, are encouraged to participate in the HUPO 2023 poster competition taking place on September 17-21, 2023 in Busan, South Korea.

    This competition provides a platform for you to present your work in a visually engaging format, fostering discussions and collaborations with fellow researchers. Presenting a poster allows you to highlight the significance and impact of your research while fostering meaningful interactions with colleagues from around the world. To participate, simply indicate your interest in the competition while submitting your abstract by checking the appropriate box. A set of posters will be selected as finalists and will be evaluated during the conference by a jury. Winners in both categories (graduate students and postdocs) will each receive cash prizes.

    Submit you abstract here today!

    The Journal of Proteome Research is preparing to publish its 11th annual special issue dedicated to highlighting the progress made on the HUPO Human Proteome Project (HPP). The editorial team invites you to submit a manuscript for consideration by August 15, 2023.

    For this special issue, the editorial team will consider research papers encompassing the HUPO HPP Grand Challenge, Chromosome-Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) and the Biology and Disease Human Proteome Project (B/D-HPP), as well from the HPP Resource Pillars (Antibody, MS, Pathology, and Knowledgebase), and short definitive reports, submitted in the Letters format, on the discovery of a missing protein(s).

    More details are available at the JPR website.

    The 10th HUPO HPP Special Issue has been published in the April issue of the Journal of Proteome Research ( As a consequence of lab shut downs in the pandemic, a smaller and later Special Issue was necessary. The hallmark anchor paper of every Special Issue is the HPP Metrics paper, lead by Dr Gil Omenn and the leaders of neXTprot, the Peptide Atlas, the HPP, C-HPP and B/D-HPP: “The 2022 Report on the Human Proteome from the HUPO Human Proteome Project” by Gilbert S. Omenn, Lydie Lane, Christopher M. Overall, Charles Pineau, Nicolle H. Packer, Ileana M. Cristea, Cecilia Lindskog, Susan T. Weintraub, Sandra Orchard, Michael H. A. Roehrl, Edouard Nice, Siqi Liu, Nuno Bandeira, Yu-Ju Chen, Tiannan Guo, Ruedi Aebersold, Robert L. Moritz, and Eric W. Deutsch (

    ABSTRACT: The 2022 Metrics of the Human Proteome from the HUPO Human Proteome Project (HPP) show that protein expression has now been credibly detected (neXtProt PE1 level) for 18 407 (93.2%) of the 19 750 predicted proteins coded in the human genome, a net gain of 50 since 2021 from data sets generated around the world and reanalyzed by the HPP. Conversely, the number of neXtProt PE2, PE3, and PE4 missing proteins has been reduced by 78 from 1421 to 1343. This represents continuing experimental progress on the human proteome parts list across all the chromosomes, as well as significant reclassifications. Meanwhile, applying proteomics in a vast array of biological and clinical studies continues to yield significant findings and growing integration with other omics platforms. We present highlights from the Chromosome-Centric HPP, Biology and Disease-driven HPP, and HPP Resource Pillars, compare features of mass spectrometry and Olink and Somalogic platforms, note the emergence of translation products from ribosome profiling of small open reading frames, and discuss the launch of the initial HPP Grand Challenge Project, “A Function for Each Protein”.

    For 2024, the format of the 11th HUPO HPP Special Issue will differ. Papers focused on the HPP, the neXt-MP50, the neXt-CP50, and the Grand Challenge will be published in regular JPR issues after acceptance during this year. In December 2023 a HUPO HPP Virtual Issue will be compiled of these HPP papers and related articles published over the year.

    For reports on missing protein discovery, authors must use the 2023-04-18 release of neXtProt and the checklist for the credible identification of missing proteins (

    An example of the HPP Virtual Issue is now online  HUPO Human Proteome Project Virtual Special Issue, Associate Editor, Dr Chris Overall. This collection includes papers published this past year as part of the 10th HUPO HPP Special Issue, now online, along with highly cited papers from HUPO HPP SI’s of years past.

    The HUPO Early Career Researcher (ECR) Initiative is delighted to welcome Darien Tayba Schell and Seanantha Baros-Steyl.

    Darien Tayba Schell is a Ph.D. student at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, supervised by Prof. Jonathan Blackburn. Her research aims to better understand host responses to mycobacterial phosphatases during infection using phosphoproteomic methods. She is skilled in mass spectrometry, microscopy, and R programming. During her BMedSci Hons degree, specializing in structural biology, she became intrigued by mass spectrometry in relation to proteomics. She hopes that her findings contribute to the field of Tuberculosis research and provides a framework for the development of more effective TB treatments in the future. Darien looks forward to contributing to the future growth of the ECR.

    Seanantha Baros-Steyl is a Ph.D. student at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, working under the supervision of Prof. Jonathan Blackburn. Her current research focuses on identifying host-pathogen protein-protein interactions within the context of tuberculosis. She employs mass spectrometry-based proteomic and phosphoproteomic pipelines to uncover the mechanisms driving disease progression and identify potential therapeutic targets. She also has a strong interest in leveraging programming languages, particularly Python and R, to enhance mass spectrometry data analysis and visualisation. Seanantha is passionate about diseases of the developing world and strives to use her expertise to contribute to the advancement of drug discovery and development and improve the lives of people affected by these diseases. She is committed to making a positive impact within the HUPO community.

    A word from our newly elected Chair:

    Thank you all for your participation in the HUPO-HIPP elections 2023! I am very honoured to take on the position as Chair of HUPO-HIPP together with Jenn Abelin. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Michal Bassani for her excellent leadership throughout the past two years, which enabled us to present and discuss important findings in the field in three high-profile webinars and allowed us to hold the 2nd HUPO-HIPP Summer School in Oxford, UK last year.

    Jenn and I will continue our efforts to facilitate discussions in the field of immunopeptidomics together with the executive committee, with its current members Michal Bassani, Pouya Faridi, Annika Nelde, Krystel Vincent, and Wei Wu. We would also like to welcome Susan Klaeger to the executive committee, as our first industry representative.  We are keen to learn whether there are suggestions or nominations for additional members of our committee, and or hearing from you what would be a priority for the HUPO-HIPP team from your perspective. Do not hesitate to contact us at

    We will get in touch soon with more information on the establishment of working groups and activities not to miss in the immunopeptidomics community.

    All best wishes,

    Nicola & Jenn
