Human Proteome Organisation Formed
On June 25, the recently launched Human Proteome Organisation (HUPO) announced the election of Sam Hanash (University of Michigan) as its Inaugural President. Proteomics is the high-throughput study of protein expression and function. HUPO's goals are to increase awareness of the Human Proteome Project (HPP) and the importance of proteomics in the diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy of disease; foster international cooperation; and promote scientific research. HUPO's inaugural meeting, sponsored by Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI), was held in April in Virginia, where topics included HPP, HUPO goals and objectives, and nominations for the first president. CHI is planning the next meeting for January 2002 in San Diego.
