sqInvitation clriBack to Index

  Dear Colleagues,

  It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the HUPO Initiative Assembly in Kyoto on September 19 after the HUPO2013 in Yokohama. We started the Human Proteome Project in 2011 to generate the map of the all human proteins in the human body and to become a resource to help elucidate biological and molecular function and advance diagnosis and treatment of diseases. To achieve the project, Two projects: Chromosome-based Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) and Biology/Disease Human Proteome Project (B/D-HPP), and three pillars: KBpC (knowledgebase), MSpC (Mass spectrometry), and ABpC, (antibody) have been organaized.

The aim of this Kyoto meeting is to provide for all these groups a gathering in a room to understand and discuss each other. We believe this meeting will provide an opportunity to stimulate cross-group collaboration for harvesting the Human Proteome Project in the future.

The meeting will be open not only for the Human Proteome Project members, but also for colleagues who are interested in the project.
Attendance is free, but sheets are limited, therefore, we appreciate your registration through this website.

As you may know, Kyoto is the most famous historical city in Japan and a lot of old architectures built several hundred years ago and authentic Japanese culture have been preserved as spiritual home for Japanese. After the meeting, you may enjoy seeing these in the beautiful city of Kyoto.
 Sincerely yours,
Tadashi Yamamoto, Chair, HUPO Initiative
Gilbert S. Omenn, Chair, HPP
Ruedi Aebersold, Char, B/D-HPP
Young-Ki Paik, Chair, C-HPP
Hiroshi Mamitsuka (Kyoto University),
Local organizing member
