HUPO, Amersham Road Show to Toot Proteomics

NEW YORK, June 3 - The Human Proteome Organization and Amersham Biosciences today kicked off a joint North American and European tour to discuss new research in proteomics and educate researchers about the recent advances and new technologies in the field.


The summer road show begins on today with researchers from Amersham and HUPO holding a seminar at Yale University.


Amersham Applications Manager Reiner Westermeier will discuss using mass spectrometry and 2D-gel electrophoresis in proteome analysis. HUPO representatives will also give updates on organization projects.


In the following ten days, researchers will visit universities and hotel conference centers in Piscataway, NJ; Quebec City; Montreal; Toronto; Ann Arbor, Mich., Minneapolis; Denver; Salt Lake City, and San Francisco.
