HUPO2017 Congress on “Integrated Proteomics for Healthcare Systems” aimed to create a meeting that brought together world leaders with a new generation of scientists to promote HUPO’s capabilities for advancing knowledge of the Human Proteome and the impact this will have on the understanding of health, disease and ageing. The Congress celebrated past achievements and presented new disruptive advances in proteomics. This was achieved by a balanced scientific programme that took into account previous milestone developments in proteomics, the current state of the art as well as newly arising areas and opportunities.
Horizon Discovery contributed a talk which was given by Laura Carleton: 'Introduction to CRISPR-Cas9 genome engineering and its potential application in proteomic research'. This took place in Liffey Meeting Room 2 from 13:00-14:00 on Monday 18 September.
