Top Down Proteomics Consortium meets in Cascais, Portugal

The inaugural meeting of the Top Down Proteomics Consortium will be held on March 2-4, 2012 in Cascais, Portugal. David Goodlett (University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA), Pat Langridge-Smith (University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) and Neil Kelleher (Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA) organized a small conference of thought leaders in the field of Top Down Proteomics and representatives of several major instrument vendors to meet and discuss the future of Top Down Proteomics. The overarching goal of this consortium is to construct strong organizational and technical scaffolds that can translate investment in proteomics efficiently into diagnostics and therapeutics to improve human health. The framework we construct together will eventually serve as a vehicle to help deliver on the original promise of the Human Genome Project (1985-2002).
