Proteomics Technologies and Applications to Human Disease

August 4-6, 2011
Madison, Wisconsin

Event Poster (pdf)

PROGRAM: The UW Human Proteomics Program (HPP) is pleased to be partnering with the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute (BTC Institute), a non-profit educational organization in Madison, to offer this excellent program. It includes 20 invited oral presentations from nationally recognized researchers in modern mass spectrometry/proteomics with a broad theme of "potential of proteomics to impact human health".

Speakers will address a range of proteomics applications in basic and clinical biomedical research, instrumentation/technique development and potential applications in clinical practice.

All talks will be presented in a plenary format. Attendees can expect to hear about cutting-edge proteomics technology developments and proteomics applications in cardiovascular diseases, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

Attendees are also invited to present their recent work in scientific poster sessions. We anticipate participation of 200-300 conferees with up to 50 posters from academia, clinics and industry.

ABSTRACTS: The Symposium abstracts are hosted on a BTCI web page here.

SCHEDULE: This Symposium is designed to build upon a very successful event offered by HPP in 2007. Beginning with an opportunity to visit open houses at UW-Madison facilities and attend an opening reception at the Pyle Center on Thursday afternoon, August 4, the event will continue with two days of talks, panel discussions, poster sessions, and sponsor exhibits at the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center (BTC) Friday and Saturday, August 5-6, 2011. There will be many opportunities for discussion and intermingling.

POSTER SESSION: Meeting attendees were encouraged to submit posters on novel research projects relevant to the Symposium theme. Posters address research questions rather than product descriptions or usage. Posters were accepted on a first come basis and screened for appropriateness by the Symposium Organizing Committee. Thirty-three posters will be presented. CLOSED (The application deadline was July 29, 2011.)

REGISTRATION FEE: The registration fee is $150. A discounted fee of $75 is available to students and post-doctoral candidates. This fee includes breakfast and lunch on Friday and Saturday, and receptions on all three days.
