HUPO 2018: September 30 - October 04
HUPO 2018 Plenary Speakers
Joel Dudley,
Mount Sinai Medical Center
Big Data
Joel Dudley, PhD, an internationally recognized investigator in translational bioinformatics and precision medicine. He was recently named Executive Vice President for Precision Health for the Mount Sinai Health System. In this new role, he will create a Precision Health Enterprise by linking pioneering research conducted in the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) with implementation strategies developed in collaboration with leadership and staff throughout the Health System. His talk will highlight potential new paths forward in translational bioinformatics and its impacts on precision medicine.
Professor Mary Schweitzer stunned the world when she published that proteins could be identified from 65 Million dinosaur fossils. Her work demonstrated that proteins exist longer then DNA in fossils. This work inspired the field the paleoproteomics and has led to significant discoveries of ancient proteins from fossils. Her talk at HUPO2018 will update this fascinating area of research.
Mary Higby Schweitzer, North Carolina State University
Stephen Quake, Stanford University
Human Cell Atlas
Professor Stephen Quake is a recognized leader in single cell sequencing. More recently he is working with the Human Cell Atlas based primarily of single cell transcriptomics. His talk will highlight the efforts and plans of the groundbreaking Human Cell Atlas project.
Systems Biology
Professor Robinson is a distinguished Professor at Oxford University. She established the field of native proteomic analysis of very large protein complexes. These studies have led to novel insights in the structures of protein complexes. Her talk at HUPO2018 will unveil new insights in native protein complex analyses.
Carol V. Robinson,
Oxford University

The Human Proteome Project (HPP)
Highlights from the new neXtProt release
On February 21, 2018 the new release of neXtProt was published, which serves as the definitive reference database of the human proteome and is used by the Human Proteome Project (HPP) to assess the progress of completing the map of Human Proteome. The new version of neXtProt updated the human proteome evidence using the latest data from PeptideAtlas (release Human 2018-01) and resulted in 17,470 validated human proteins (PE1), 393 more compared to the previous version of January 17, 2017, leaving 2,186 missing proteins with status PE2+PE3+PE4 and 574 uncertain proteins (PE5). In this new release a total of 51 PeptideAtlas data sets was included from cancer tissues and cell lines, with over 1.4 million peptides detected by mass spectrometry. Read more...
New HPP initiative on Rheumatic and autoimmune diseases (RAD)
Painful joints and bones? Rheumatic and autoimmune diseases (RAD) are common and difficult to manage. The RAD-HPP initiative aims to tackle several unmet clinical needs in RAD. Full article here...
The Lab of Neuroproteomics
The Lab of Neuroproteomics (University of Campinas, Brazil) is a multidisciplinary group that bases their investigation on psychiatric disorders in proteomics. To explain their work to the general public, they created the following video.
Affiliated proteomic societies and HUPO members are encouraged to share their events and news for inclusion on the HUPO website, in the monthly HUPOST and via social media channels.
