The Human Proteome Organization this week began accepting nominations for its board of directors.
All nominations must be made and seconded by a HUPO member. Nominations can be sent to Mark Baker, chair of the nomination and elections committee, at [email protected]. Nominations are due by June 19.
Nominees must be in good standing with HUPO, i.e. paid their dues for 2009, be over the age of 30, and be a scientist from the public or private sector "engaged in educational, research, or commercial activities related to any object of HUPO," the organization said in a statement.
Elections will be held during the General Assembly of Members during HUPO's annual conference in late September in Toronto.
