The Human Proteome Organization presents HUPO awards annually at the World Congress. These awards recognize the outstanding efforts and achievements of individuals (or groups) in the field of proteomics. HUPO gratefully acknowledges the support of Journal of Proteome Research-ACS Publications, Clinical Proteomics-BioMed Central/SpringerNature and the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) as sponsors of the annual awards.
The 2022 Call for HUPO Awards Nominations is now closed. Award winners will be announced in late summer/early Fall 2022.
