Welcome to the Norwegian Proteomics Society 

The Norwegian Proteomics Society (NPS) is an organization for researchers in Norway with interest in proteomics. NPS shall work towards promoting and stimulating proteomics research and education, as well as enhancing collaboration between the proteomics researchers in Norway. NPS also collaborate with similar societies in other countries.

7th Nordic Proteomics meeting - REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
November 15-17, 2023 we encourage all NPS members to come together for a Nordic meeting on proteomics. This will be arranged in Lund, Sweden - link here.
NPS will provide free registration + a travel grant (2000 nok) for five PhD-students who wants to attend. Make sure to tick the box for 'compeeting for a National travel grant' upon abstract submission.

Information from the organizers: We are happy to announce that the registration for the Nordic Proteomics Meeting NPS 2023, which also will be the 20th Swedish Proteomics Society Jubilee Symposium is open! The meeting will be held at Scandic Star in Lund, on 15-17th of November 2023. We will have an exciting programme with outstanding speakers and a specific focus on early-stage researchers. The meeting will provide an overarching view of state-of-the-art proteomics in the Nordic countries focusing on proteomics in health, disease and biology, and includes sessions on structural proteomics, proteogenomics, clinical proteomics, precision medicine, spatial proteomics, computational proteomics and bioinformatics as well as cellular and molecular biology. Our aim is to encourage participants from academia, industry, national research societies and instrument vendors with expertise in biology, healthcare and protein science including proteomics to interact and create new collaborations between multiple disciplines and participating countries. Confirmed speakers include - Jennifer van Eyk (Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, LA, CA, USA) - Ileana M. Cristea (Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA) - Marius Ueffing (University of Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany) - Fan Liu (Leibniz Forschungsinstitut Fur Molekulare Pharmakologie, Berlin, Germany) - Markku Varjosalo (University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland) - Frode Berven (University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway) - Ann Brinkmalm (University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Denmark) - Johan Malmström (Lund University, Lund, Sweden) - Simon Ekström (Lund University, Lund, Sweden) - Marjolein Thunnissen (MAX IV Laboratory, Lund, Sweden) - Giovanna Fragneto (European Spallation Source ESS, Lund, Sweden) - György Marko-Varga (Lund University, Lund, Sweden) If you are an early-stage researcher, you can compete in the following three categories (please remember to register and submit an abstract before August 31st!): - The Young Investigator Award for best abstract. All submitted abstracts during the early-bird registration between June 1st and August 31st will be in the competition for the YIA. - Students can select if they are competing for a 5 min oral presentation with free conference registration. Two such presentations will be awarded to each Nordic country. - There will be five national travel grants sponsored by the Swedish Proteomics Society for Swedish students who submit an abstract and register for the conference before August 31st. On behalf on the Swedish Proteomics Society, I wish you all welcome to the NPS 2023 meeting!

White Background
NPS is part of the National network of Advanced Proteomics Infrastructure (NAPI)

NAPI partners include proteomics core facilities in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Tromsø and Ås, as well as research groups with a strong focus on proteomics technology development. NAPI therefore combines the proteomics expertise available across Norway, streamlining collaborations, accelerating the development of new techniques, and providing researchers in Norway with access to cutting edge proteomics technology.

NAPI officially launched in 2020. On their webpages you can learn more about NAPI and its current activities, including the broad range of techniques that can be provided as services to researchers interested in performing proteomic analyses.

to schools and courses

NPS supports the European Summerschool in Brixen

NPS can cover the participation fee to the Brixen Summerschool.
The 15th  European Summerschool in “Advanced Proteomics” will be July 30th – August 5th, 2023 in Kloster Neustift, Brixen/Bressanone, South Tyrol, Italy. Registration and abstract submission is already possible, and with a deadline on May 15th 2023. See more info here. If you would like to apply for a fellowship, please contact us as soon as possible.

Other schools or courses

NPS will promote the education of young proteomics researchers by supporting travel or participation fees for students to relevant summerschools / courses / workshops. For example the MaxQuant summerschool or EuBIC winterschool.

For either of the above, please send an email to with information about the (relevance of the) course, your background, and your motivation. Two students will be selected by NPS per year to receive an award.
