Welcome to FinnProt

The Finnish Proteomics Society (FinnProt) aims to make proteomics research readily available for the scientific community in Finland, and promote research and education in proteomics and protein chemistry.

FinnProt is the official Finnish collaborative body in international proteomics organizations, representing Finland in the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) and the European Proteomics Association, EuPA.


Note: From time to time announcements for FinnProt travel grants are posted here, but please not that only members who have joined prior to announcements are eligible.


HUPO 2021 Stockholm

  • 19th Human Proteome Organization World Congress- Stockholm for October 24 – 28, 2021! https://hupo.org/event-2778909https://hupo2020.org
    • Due to the effects of COVID-19 the HUPO World Congress in Stockholm, Sweden has been postponed to 2021


FinnProt-HUPO Travel Grant for HUPO 2019

Australia is a long way from Finland and thus not a budget choice for conference attendance.

However, recognising this barrier of distance and cost, the Human Proteome Organisation (HUPO) is offering to match the value of travel grants from national proteomics societies to encourage and enable participation at this year’s HUPO conference 15th-19th September in Adelaide, Southern Australia.

In keeping with their generosity FinnProt is offering two 600 travel grants for the HUPO conference.

To be eligible you should be a member of FinnProt (prior to 09/04/2019) and need to send your abstract and a letter of intent to the current secretary of FinnProt (robert.moulder@btk.fi) before May 5th.

The deadline for abstracts to HUPO is 14th June, and as we intend to promptly evaluate the applications within a week of our deadline, this should leave the successful applicants time deal with other matters.

Please note the grant is  only issued subject to  use at this conference.

General Assembly and Presentations in Turku 20/03/2019

On March 20th both Janne Lehtio and Lennart Martens will be speaking in Turku in a minisymposium  organised by the Turku Medical Bioinformatics Centre

Proteogenomics: Bridging genotype to phenotype” (see attached flyer)

The event begins at 10 and will finish around lunch time, and thus will be an excellent opportunity to get to Turku, listen to some high quality proteomics presentations, have lunch together and have a general assembly: That is four things for the price of one!

It would be useful to know how many FinnProt members will come, join for lunch and remain at the General assembly. The assembly is necessary tool for the correct running of the society, election of board members, decision making and  defining policy. Please make the effort to attend! The agenda will be forwarded in advance. Please mail me if you attend to come.
