Title: Revolutionizing Our Understanding of Disease: The Human Proteome Project
Speaker: Neil Kelleher, Northwestern University
Abstract: A worldwide effort led by Northwestern, the Cell-Based Human Proteome Project seeks to define all cell types and protein molecules within the human body, allowing us to revolutionize our understanding of human wellness and disease. Representing the next generation of the Human Genome Project, the Human Proteome Project also marks a transformative next step in our ability to understand and improve human health through technology. In this session, Neil Kelleher will share Northwestern’s role in the Human Proteome Project, including the project’s links to clinical research in areas such as organ transplantation, heart disease, and cancer, and its alignment with work on the Evanston and Chicago campuses.
