overview

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 Advancing Proteomics in Human Disease. Speakers presented a range of topics in cutting-edge proteomics technology developments for understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. Applications to human diseases, for example, cancer and cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases, were discussed. Meeting attendees were encouraged to present their recent work in scientific poster sessions. A poster contest open to graduate students and post-doctoral researchers was included.
