HUPO 2019


About HUPO 2019 Congress, Adelaide

In 2019, the ‘proteome’ will celebrate its 25th birthday by returning home to Australia for the 18th Human Proteome Organization World Congress. The Congress will be hosted by the Australasian Proteomics Society (APS) and held 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 both celebrate what has been achieved and look forward to future advances and discoveries that will revolutionize global health. This will be achieved by a balanced scientific program that will have clearly defined biological and technical streams that focusses on state-of-the-art methodological developments and their applications in human health.

The social program will focus on facilitating collegial interactions in both informal and formal settings, including a major focus on students and early career researchers and our Industry partners.

The scientific program will include 6 major thematic streams, including the Human Proteome Project (HPP); Health and Disease; The Environment; Biological Applications of the Proteome; Enabling Technologies; and ‘Beyond the Proteome’. These streams will allow delegates to focus on an area of their interest or to expose themselves to a wider variety of new topics. The program will also include Keynote/Plenary sessions with speakers of the highest international standing, examining topics of widespread interest to HUPO 2019 attendees.
