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.

Get Ready for HUPO ReConnect 2021!

November 15-19, 2021
 HUPO ReConnect 2021 kicks off with a series of 60-minute live webinars taking place on August 16 and October 18 in which the very best of proteomics research will be presented as a prelude to the main Congress sessions.

HUPO Pre-Congress Training takes place over 5 days, and is included in your main Congress registration! A total of 5 training courses are planned and each course will include three one-hour pre-recorded talks made available on-demand two weeks prior to the live days. 

This introductory level Protoemics Fundamentals Training course is perfect for students and researchers new to proteomics and those looking to expand their proteomic skillset. Visit the congress website for more information on the pre-congress training program


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to participate in the Spring Proteomic Highlights, an on line meeting organized jointly by the Polish Proteomic Society and Finnish Proteomics Society, devoted to problems of modern proteomics and proteogenomics in human disease research.

The speakers of the seminar are Dr Javier Alfaro from the International Center of Cancer Vaccines Science (ICCVS), at the University of Gdansk and Dr Tuula Nyman representing the University of Oslo.

“Proteogenomics today and tomorrow”

Dr Javier Alfaro

Proteomics to characterize activation of innate immunity”

Dr Tuula Nyman

The online event will be held on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, at 2 -4 pm CET, via ZOOM platform.

Please feel free to circulate the information among any colleagues that may be interested.

Please register your participation by replying to: proteom@man.poznan.pl or maciej.lalowski@helsinki.fi

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

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.

Robert Moulder Ph.D.

FinnProt Secretary
