The Belgian Proteomics Association is embodied by a workgroup that aims to bring together the Belgian proteomics community and to represent Belgian proteomics professionals, from academia as well as industry, in an international context of proteomics activities. This non-profit organization was founded on March, 13 2012 in Brussels and is a member of EuPA.

For 2018 BePA has decided to shift its focus to the users of proteomics. So many researchers use proteomics as a tool, e.g. in medicine, veterinary sciences, bio engineering, biology, pharmaceutical sciences, ecology and even within art sciences. BePA will be the central contact point for you to find the right lab with the right expertise in Belgium. We will organize workshops where you will learn the basic thing you need to know about proteomics in order to manage your expectations and discover the fields full potential.

On December 6-7 we have our official BePA Conference in Brussels. SAVE THE DATE!


A free membership for 1 year (2018) is offered to all who register for one of the BePA 2018 events. Upon payment of the registration fee you become an official member. In doing so, you also become a member of EuPA, the European Proteomics Association and are allowed to become a member of the Young Proteomics Investigators Club (YPIC).

For those who are unable to attend the conference, you can become a member by contacting Guy Vandenbussche (vbussche@ulb.ac.be). The current membership fee is €20,00.

As a BePA member you enjoy:
