PROGRAM

The University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) Human Proteomics Program (HPP) and UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) are pleased to offer this excellent symposium! The theme of this year's exciting program is New Frontiers in Clinical Proteomics. Clinical Proteomics is a burgeoning interdisciplinary research domain that brings together researchers from diverse biomedical fields, offering a promising avenue for translating fundamental scientific insights into practical clinical applications to improve patient outcomes. Prominent areas of research anticipated to benefit from integrating proteomic technologies into clinical contexts comprise (i) early detection and diagnosis of diseases, (ii) forecasting the progression of diseases and predicting individual patient responses to specific treatments, and (iii) uncovering new targets for therapeutic intervention. In this symposium, speakers will present the recent advances in clinical proteomics including new technology innovations and applications to various human diseases, for example, cancer and cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases. Meeting attendees are encouraged to present their recent work in scientific poster sessions. A poster contest open to graduate students and post-doctoral researchers is included.

This year's exciting program features 2 keynote presentations and 14 invited oral presentations from internationally recognized leaders in Clinical Proteomics. Poster and exhibitor sessions will occur between and following oral sessions. There will also be rising star sessions to promote young scientists. Furthermore, a workshop dedicated to women's initiatives will be showcased to support and promote women scientists. Based on prior symposium participation, we anticipate 200-300 conferees with up to 100 posters from academia, clinics, and industry with many opportunities for discussion and intermingling.

RISING STAR SESSIONS

Rising Star oral sessions are key platforms for showcasing the research of early career scientists, offering visibility, networking, and mentorship opportunities essential for their career advancement. These sessions celebrate innovation, inspire others, and foster collaboration, nurturing the future leaders of the scientific community. There will be two rising star sessions in this year's symposium: 1) early career investigators including Assistant Professors and early career scientists; 2) pre- and post-doc trainees. To be considered in the rising star oral session, your abstract must be received by June 1. The abstracts will be reviewed by the organizing committee and the finalists will be invited to present in the rising star oral sessions. The oral presentations will be judged by content, clarity of communication, innovation, and the quality of the visual display of information. Three prizes will be awarded for each session: 1st Place: $500; 2nd Place: $300; 3rd Place: $200. The winners will be recognized in the closing session of the Symposium.
