All Monday workshops are open to all conference attendees. There is no special registration required. Just show up!
Fountain of Youth: Creating Sustainable Value for Your Datasets
Two NIH programs, Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) and Library of Network-Based Cellular Signatures (LINCS), together with the BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center (DCIC), present benefits and challenges of large proteomic data sets, current efforts to generate a comprehensive library of signatures representative of chemical and genetic perturbations in cellular systems, as well as analysis tools and platforms for integration across different data types. Paving the road to a shared vision of powerful biological knowledge gains from large proteomic data sets queried individually or combined with omic integration studies, now and into the future.
Implementing the Strategies of the HUPO Human Proteome Project (HPP)
An Overview of the Strategies and Plans for the HUPO Human Proteome Project; Gil Omenn (University of Michigan), HPP Chair
Designing Cutting-edge Organ-specific Biological Studies using Popular Proteins and SRM Assays; Maggie Lam (UCLA) and discussant Jennifer Van Eyk (Cedars-Sinai Medical Center)
Proteogenomic analyses of cancer genes and proteins: a collaborative cHPP and B/D HPP study, with a focus on the CPTAC studies of Ovarian Cancers; Hui Zhang and discussant Alexey Nesvizhskii (University of Michigan)
Presented by Peipei Ping (UCLA) and Ileana Cristea (Princeton University)
In the current competitive landscape for grant funding developing a strategy for successful grantwriting is critical. Early career academics will learn techniques and gain insight into what is needed to submit a succesful grant. Even those with past experience will benefit from fresh perspectives to bring to their next application.
How to Obtain an Academic Faculty Position and Keep It!
Presented by Ben Garcia (University of Pennsylvania) and Laurie Parker (University of Minnesota)
This workshop is targeted at the next generation of MS scientists to give information, advice and support for those interested in an academic career. The workshop will focus on how to keep on the path to an academic position (doing exciting research, networking, putting together an academic application, securing good letters of recommendation, preparing the research statement and applying and interviewing for faculty positions) for graduate students/postdocs. Additionally, advice on how to also keep on the path to tenure (hiring the right people, building good collaborations, writing grants and papers, presenting your work, etc.) will also be presented. The workshop will be composed of an informal lecture presentation to provide information for beginning academic scientists, paired with a panel discussion (made up of current established young to mid-range academic faculty) to give attendees a chance to ask questions.
