Jennifer's presentation on "A Multiplexed, and Quantitative immuno-MALDI (iMALDI) Assay for Angiotensin I and II" was selected for second prize in the Graduate Student Posters section of the 23rd Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hypertension.
On June 15th, 2010 my term begins as the president of the Canadian National
Proteomics Network (CNPN). I will be replacing the accomplished Dr. Guy Poirier
who presided over the CNPN since the its incorporation in the fall of 2008. I
would like to thank Guy for his outstanding work to develop and promote the
As the new president, I will continue to emphasize the CNPN’s important role as
a cooperative national research network and its mandate to promote proteomics
education, training and research in Canada. One of my objectives is to raise the
CNPN’s standing among the research and education community. My hope is to
attract new members from various disciplines, including medicine and biology. I
will also focus to improve the access to education and training in proteomics by
organizing hands-on and web-based workshops. To ensure publicity and longterm
sustainability of the society, we need to increase the involvement of industrial
sponsors and attract international meetings to Canada. Finally, during my
tenure as president of the CNPN, I plan to continue development of a national
strategy to promote Canadian proteomics research and facilitate international
collaborations on large-scale projects such as the Human Proteomics Project.

One of our goals is to develop a rapid, sensitive, and specific method for detection and quantitation of proteins. The result of which is the development of MRM based assays for proteins in plasma. To see a list of proteins for which such assays have been successfully developed, please click here.
Elizabeth Clemis and Jennifer Reid have been awarded $1000 to help offset travel costs for the upcoming 2nd CNPN Symposium - New Frontiers in Proteomic Research in Montréal on May 9-11, 2010. This funding is made available by the British Columbia Proteomics Network (BCPN) travel award program as well as a contribution from Genome BC. The BCPN is a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research-supported research platform.
Congratulations Liz and Jen!!
