Welcome Message from
HUPO President Stephen Pennington
On behalf of all of the HUPO Executive Committee I’m delighted to be able to wish all HUPO members a very happy and healthy 2019. I hope your year ahead will be productive and enjoyable. Having had a successful 2018, HUPO has much to look forward to in the coming year.

In my role as the incoming President, my main objective is to work inclusively with all the HUPO committees and members to raise awareness of the impact of proteomics. Impact that arises from the significant advances that have been made recently and from those that will undoubtedly emerge in 2019. I hope collectively we can work to ensure that the central importance of proteomics in our understanding of human biology – in health and disease - is recognized at all levels - from the public, to research funders and policy makers. I’m looking forward to working with you all to achieve this and if there is anything that I, or HUPO, can do to help you in your research endeavors and career in proteomics then please don’t hesitate to get in contact.

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Dr. Norman G. Anderson, a brilliant scientist who made a significant impact on the world of proteins. Our most sincere sympathies to his family and friends. Read the obituary here... 
Human Personal Omics Profiling (hPOP) - Assay Invite
A Message from hPOP - Assay Invite

The hPOP project to profile people from around the world has been highly successful in the sample collection. We have collected samples from each of the three regions: Boston (Pilot n = 31 individuals), Taipei (N = 106), Dublin (n = 115), Orlando (n = 84). Plus to increase North American numbers we have collected samples from the Bay area (n = 40).
We are now ready for the analyses. On a google spread sheet we list possible assays. We are looking for volunteers to help carry them out. See sign up details here...
HUPO 2019: September 15 -19, 2019
T he 18th Human Proteome Organization World Congress
The 18th Human Proteome Organization World Congress - HUPO 2019 will be hosted by the Australasian Proteomics Society (APS) in the beautiful ‘City of Churches’, Adelaide. HUPO 2019 will focus on “Advancing Global Health Through Proteome Innovation” and will bring together world-leading experts and the next generation of early career scientists to promote how proteomics is advancing our knowledge of human and planetary health. HUPO 2019 will celebrate what has been achieved and also look forward to future advances and discoveries that will revolutionize global health.
The Australasian Proteomics Society (APS) has started to design a fantastic program for HUPO 2019 and have confirmed the following plenary speakers:
  • Prof. Ruedi Aebersold
  • Prof. Yu-Ju Chen
  • Prof. Fuchu He
  • Prof. Albert Heck
  • Prof. Kathryn Lilley
  • Prof. Mathias Uhlén
HPP Call for Session Topics
The HPP is starting to develop it’s activities at HUPO 2019 in Adelaide next year. This includes selecting the sessions that will be presented in the HPP track. If you have a B/D-HPP or C-HPP focused session topic that you’d like the HPP to consider, please email your suggestion to chelsea@hupo.org by Friday, January 11, 2019.

Highlights from Journal of Proteome Research HPP 2018 Special Issue
The Journal of Proteome Research Special Issue 2018 (Associate Editor: Christopher M. Overall, Guest Editors: Paik, YK, Eric Deutsch, Fernando Corrales, Lydie Lane and Gil Omenn) was published on December 7, 2018 ( Volume 17, Issue 12 ). In this issue, a total of 32 papers covered 4 major research topics: (i) missing proteins (MPs), (ii) uPE1 proteins, (iii) bioinformatics tool development and (iv) biology/disease proteomes. According to the article summarising the progress on identification status and metrics of the Human Proteome Project, the number of missing proteins (PE1+2+3+4) decreased from 2579 to 2186 and the number of proteins with sufficient evidence at proteome level (PE1) reached 17470, which represents 89% of the human proteome, while the number of dubious proteins is 574.

Proteomics Bootcamp at IIT Bombay – December 2018 
Advancements in proteomics has been phenomenal over the last decade with several promising high-throughput technologies emerging at the forefront of various applications. Owing to the rapid advancements in state-of-the-art proteomics technologies, continuous expansion of scientific understanding, and challenges associated with omics research, it has become essential to keep up with current trends and advances in proteomics research. In this light, three workshops were held at IIT Bombay where eminent scientists and researchers, from India and abroad, shared their knowledge and expertise to train participants and familiarize them to the vast applications of proteomics .  Read full article here...
