BePA Proteomics Summer School
September 20, 2021 @ 08:00 – September 23, 2021 @ 17:00
Many researchers use proteomics as a research tool. BePA is organizing workshops for these users and for students early in their PhD in proteomics. In this Doctoral School (DS LSM) on Proteomics a broad selection of proteomics experts from Ghent will go through the entire workflow from sample preparation, over data acquisition to data analysis. At the end of the course, attendees will better understand the do’s and don’ts in proteomics and be able to design their own experiment in order to find an answer to their protein-related questions. It is a perfect occasion to get acqainted with both the wet and dry lab technologies. We plan the DS in September to help PhD candidates to prepare their defence for e.g. FWO.

The Belgian Proteomics Association (BePA for short) has transitioned over the past years from a group of protein experts to an organization that facilitates access to protein facilities for Belgian (young) researchers in need of proteomics. Did you know that Belgium actually is internationally recognized for its expertise? Well, that Belgian proteomics expertise is here to help you. It doesn’t always have to be a clinical biomarker for cancer you are looking for. Just as easily we can help you find a forensic hint on a crime scene, an HLA binding peptide antigen, a plant seed protein, a bioinformatics solution or a protein trace in an archeological specimen! The BePA board is now supported by 36 experts, representing 21 Service labs and core facilities and 30 academic labs. As a member of the European Proteomics Association (EuPA), we are the perfect stepping stone for networking with international proteomics experts. BePA can help you get acquainted with proteomics and its capabilities like no other organization can.
Therefore, we invite you to become a member of our organization. Here is some of the short term benefits of a membership with BePA:
You get a discount and priority invite to our activities, which this year include this Doctoral School Introducing the proteomics workflow (4-day workshop in September) and our bi-annual BePA conference. BePAc2021 will be on Spatial Proteomics and will hopefully be in real life this year, December 6 to 8 in Liège. You get Regular updates on all protein-related events and job opportunities within and outside Belgium. You automatically become a EuPA member. This entitles you to a discount on many EuPA events like the Early Career Researcher event that was organized on June 21th 2021 (https://www.proteomics-academy.org/copie-de-escp2021-workshop) and the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) conference, when it is held in Europe. Finally, you get a KVCV membership, free of charge! KVCV brings together all chemistry-related organizations in Flanders and organizes regular webinars, like the one we jointly organized on May 5th. You will also receive the Mens&Molecule magazine. Finally, a BePA membership provides you with a direct and easy contact with all the Belgian proteomics experts!
