HUPO World Congress in Boston


The 11th HUPO World Congress was held in Boston, September 9-13, 2012 in coordination with USHUPO. Featured speakers from across the globe delivered talks on their recent and emerging research.  The program included over 100 talks selected from the submitted abstracts. The congress was organized by Drs. Gil Omenn, Mike Snyder, Catherine Fenselau and Bill Hancock.

Dr. Catherine Costello currently serves as  President of the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO), and in 2008 she received the HUPO Discovery Award in Proteomics Sciences.
