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.
Post Doc: Structural Proteomics

Location: Leuven, Belgium
We study protein trafficking through the Sec and the Type III systems (Saio 2014 Science 344, 6184; Gouridis 2013 MolCell 52, 655; Papanastasiou 2013 MCP 12, 599; Chen 2011 MolCell 44, 734; Gouridis 2009 Nature 462, 363; Gelis 2007 Cell 131, 756). We use multi-disciplinary approaches that combine enzymology, protein chemistry, molecular genetics, biophysics, structural biology and mass spectrometry. The position involves the study of multi-protein complexes involved in protein trafficking. Successful candidates should hold a Ph.D. in structural proteomics including HDX-MS, native and Ion Mobility-MS, cross-linking-MS. Available instruments include: Synapt G2/nanoAcquity/HDX, Orbitrap Q Exactive/Dionex3000
Open Until Feb 2015
Proteomics Pioneer Award in Proteomics Sciences 2014 was awarded to Albert Heck
many and excellent contributions to the field of proteomics in Europe.
ProteoRed / EuPA Multicentric study
on Relative Retention Times in Targeted Proteomics
For a long time ProteoRed, the Spanish national Proteomics Facilities network, has been leading efforts to evaluate standards and SOPs in proteome analyses, at the regional and national level, and also internationally through its collaboration with EuPA.
Following on from these successful Multicentre studies a new call has been opened to take part in the PME10 study that will evaluate the use of retention time (Rt) standards in targeted proteome analyses.
It is EuPA’s high priority to promote the standardisation and improvement of proteome technology throughout Europe. Therefore the together with ProteoRed thre EuPA Initiatives Committee encourages National Societies to take part in the PME10 by:
- performing targeted MS measurements, and
- analysing the results of the experiment.
If you wish to participate in the study, please request samples by writing to , indicating the contact person and shipping address. Since sample availability is limited, they will be sent on a first come-first serve basis.

EuPA Open Proteomics
... is the official owned journal of the European Proteomics Association (EuPA) and is aimed at both European and international protein scientists.
EuPA Open Proteomics is an open access journal and was launched autumn 2012.

Proteomic Forum Berlin 2015
The German Society of Proteomic Research coordinates and provides a network comprising academic institutions, commercial companies and special institutions at the national and international level in order to support the extension of scientific knowledge in the field of proteome research and protein analysis.
The conference will be held in the main building of the Technical University in Berlin, Germany, between March 22-25, 2015.
Extended to December 31, 2014
We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin.
The German Proteomics Society, organiser of the Proteomic Forum 2015 in Berlin, is glad to provide to all individual members of EuPA Society the option that they can register for the conference at the reduced member rates.
This would save 50 Euro before the Early Bird registration deadline of February 15, 2015, and 100 Euro thereafter. Interested scientists may contact the Conference Management via the contact data given in the attached Newsletter.
