PROGRAM

The Human Proteomics Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute were pleased to offer this excellent symposium.

The theme of this year's exciting program was Post-Translational Modifications in Human Disease. Speakers will present a range of topics in cutting-edge proteomics technology developments for qualitative and quantitative analysis of post-translational modifications. Applications to human diseases, for example, cancer and cardiovascular, infectious and neurodegenerative diseases, were discussed.

Meeting attendees were encouraged to present their recent work in scientific poster sessions. This year, a poster contest was included.
