The Human Brain Proteome Project (HBPP) gathers neuroproteomics researchers working in the fields of neuroscience, neurology, psychiatry, neurosurgery, and brain oncology aiming to explore the role of proteins in brain development, health, and disease.

Launched in 2003 and redesigned in 2015, HBPP provides a forum for scientific exchange on large-scale and targeted state-of-the-art proteome studies on human brain, brain-related body fluids such as CSF, pre-clinical models, and clinical translation initiatives. 

Current lines of work:

HBPP participants focus on two major areas:

  • The development and implementation of neuroproteomic methods
  • The deciphering of brain biology in health and disease. 
Neuroproteomic methods are applied to brain tissue, cultured cells and organoids, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and peripheral blood. Exploring brain biology includes the investigation of the proteome associations with neurodegenerative disorders (e.g., the dementias, movement disorders), psychiatric disorders (e.g., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depressive disorder), CNS cancers and traumatic brain injury.

The HBPP promotes the connection of neuroproteomic scientists across pre-clinical and clinical fields, fosters new collaborations, and actively encourages the inclusion of young investigators. Our well-established annual HBPP workshop has been travelling around the world to capture,  congregate, and connect the international neuroproteomics community.
