It has been a pleasure to serve as HUPOST editor and HUPO Secretary General for the past 2 years. I would like to thank our staff editor Amanda, HPP and ECR news co-ordinators for their continued dedication to HUPOST and the HUPO community. A highlight for 2020 was the “Proteomics in Action” article series that showcased global proteomics uses in everyday life from forensics, clinical diagnostic, drug development to archeology and marine science. Particular thanks go to Stephen Pennington for his enthusiasm and support, as well as all contributors and the people featured.  Read the full article...

The Human Proteome Project (HPP)
Proteomics-Guided Molecular Surgery for the Eye
Precision Medicine aims to tailor medical therapies to individual patients by taking into account their specific genetics, environments, and lifestyle choices. Recently empowered by large sets of molecular and clinical data and high-powered analytics, this concept is changing the field of medicine, such that therapies can be customized for each patient. Despite these advancements, the diagnosis and treatment of organ-specific inflammatory diseases, such as intraocular inflammation (i.e., uveitis), is most often empirical, relying heavily on clinical examination.
