Welcome to the EuPA website!
EuPA is the federation of European national proteomics societies. It has been established to coordinate and integrate national initiatives within the proteomics field. The main objectives are to strengthen and promote fundamental research and applications, through education and training in all areas of proteomics throughout Europe. EuPA is a non-profit organisation.
Juan Pablo Albar Protein Pioneer Award 2016
This year the award was endorsed by the Journal of Proteomics.
It is assigned to people with outstanding contribution across the EuPA proteomics community.
This year's awardee is
Dr. Friedrich Lottspeich
2015 Prof. Lennart Martens (University of Ghent)
YPIC kick-off meeting
In the course of X Annual Congress of the EUPA (June 21-25,2016), representatives of the EuPA Young Proteomics Investigators Club (YPIC) held a meeting in order to launch the creation of the Club. One of the most important issues discussed during the kick-off meeting was YPIC president and executive committee member election.
After a short presentation of the candidates and voting YPIC first board was elected.
- President: Maarten Dhaenens (Belgium)
- Vice-President: Dina Rešetar (Croatia)
- Secretary: Margaux Benhaim (France)
- Treasurer: Meike de Wit (Netherlands)
- Communication managers: Tina Rise Tuveng (Norway) and Stefan Kempf (Denmark)
More information concerning YPIC action plan for young proteomic investigators will come later this year. Nevertheless, in addition to scientific events, training and lectures we aim to launch discussions on subjects that are of special interest for young proteomic researchers, e.g. where to find funding, how to write applications, meet with established scientists to build up mentoring, etc.
The first task for YPIC executive committee will be organization of several events during HUPO conference in Dublin (September 2017).
