The Belgian Proteomics Association is embodied by a workgroup that aims to bring together the Belgian proteomics community. BePA is there for 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 basics about proteomics in order to manage your expectations and discover the field’s full potential. This non-profit organization was founded on March, 13 2012 in Brussels and is a member of EuPA.


Our featured event is currently the BePA Workhop in Ghent: What can proteomics do for you? Make sure to have a look at all the events we have organized and will organize in the future!


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). Members have free access to all our workshops.
