The US HUPO annual conference has established itself as a highly valued contribution to the interdisciplinary scientific field of proteomics, with a particular focus on current technologies in the field and their application to solving biological and clinical questions relevant to human health. The topics covered at the annual conference reflect the multiple disciplines, strategies, and technologies encompassing the proteomics field, and their use to address complex biomedical problems and enable new discoveries aimed at advancing diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of human disease.
The title for US HUPO is Technology accelerating discovery, which encapsulates this interplay between technology (e.g. mass spectrometry, bioinformatics, clinical/cellular assays) and biological discovery inherent to the proteomics field.

Zumba on Tuesday morning - what is this all about?
In the spirit of having something active and fun for attendees we decided to go with "indoor" activity for Minneapolis. US HUPO President Dave Muddiman is a Zumba enthusiast so we figured we would give it a try! We'll have a free Zumba class on Tuesday morning 7:00-7:45 am. All you need to do is show up at Registration and we'll direct you to the dancing room. Please wear comfortable attire (barefoot or socks are fine, we'll be in a carpeted room).
Social Event on Tuesday Evening, 7:30-9:00 am
Supper and MSP-style Dixie-land jazz are on the menu. We will have fun and stay warm. All attendees invited. Event will be in the Atrium (adjacent to Registration).
