Symposium will feature scientific leaders who are developing innovative technologies and methods that are transforming our understanding of human biology, ushering in the era of proteoform systems biology & medicine, and paving the way for the Human Proteoform Project.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Consortium for Top-Down Proteomics today announced the 2nd International Top-Down Proteomics Symposium, which will be held in Chicago, IL October 3-5, 2023. The Symposium is being hosted by Northwestern University’s Chemistry of Life Processes Institute. The Symposium will gather the global community to present and discuss the latest approaches in proteoform biology (the study of all the specific forms of proteins in the body), clinical research, and next-generation proteomics technologies. A major theme of the event will be the Human Proteoform Project, a global scientific effort to map the entire human proteome (including all proteoforms). This critical undertaking will transform our understanding of proteoform-based disease and launch a new era of precision drug discovery.
In addition to invited lectures, the Symposium will feature a series of roundtable discussions, poster and oral presentations, as well as an exhibition of companies providing technologies and services to the proteoform community.
“We are excited to bring the community together to examine the state of the field and discuss future opportunities in proteoform biology,” said Paul Danis, CEO of the Consortium. Neil Kelleher, President of the Consortium as well as Director of Northwestern’s Chemistry of Life Processes Institute, home to Northwestern Proteomics, added, “the new era of proteoform-enabled research and discovery is upon us and is generating more precise markers for better diagnostics, leading to precision medicine with improved, personalized treatment of disease.”
