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 is 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, will be discussed.

Meeting attendees are encouraged to present their recent work in scientific poster sessions. This year, a poster contest is included and three winners will receive their awards and provide brief presentations during a special afternoon session.
