Canadian Human Proteome Project Workshop

Canadian Human Proteome Project Workshop Part 2, MaRS District Discovery, TorontoFebruary 22, 2011
MaRS District Discovery
Toronto, Ontario

The Canadian National Proteomics Network is promoting a Canadian Human Proteomics Project (CHPP), which will leverage Canada’s existing strengths in proteomics, health research and technology. A position paper is currently being developed based on the outcomes of the first CHPP Workshop held on January 16-17, 2011 in conjunction with the Annual Proteomics Conference in Cell Biology in Barbados. The CHPP Working Group will present the first draft of this position paper and invite feedback and further development of the project from the research community, clinicians and industry partners. As members of the CNPN and CNPN Board of Directors, the goal of the organizers of the Workshop is to present a final version of the position paper to Canadian and provincial funding agencies in the Spring of 2011 with the intent of stimulating interest for a nationwide funding competition to support a CHPP.

We invite you to participate in the development of a CHPP during our full-day Workshop on February 22. The Workshop will consist of presentations from leaders around the world participating in the
 Human Proteome Project, discussion of the goals and potential projects for CHPP, and key strategies for engaging national funding agencies and industry partners.
