HUPO Connect 2020 kicks off with a series of 60 minute webinars taking place in July, August and September in which the very best of proteomics research will be presented as a prelude to the main Congress sessions. All webinars are free for HUPO Members, and $10.00 USD for Non HUPO Members. Non Members can sign up for HUPO's Mailing List during the registration process and receive complimentary registration!
Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 24, 2020 for our third Pre-Congress Webinar!
Attendees will be able to submit questions and/or comments via a text chat feature and a live audio Q&A facilitated by the Session Chair will take place immediately following the presentations.

Anne K Bendt is Principal Investigator and Associate Director at SLING, the Singapore Lipidomics Incubator, an internationally renowned R&D program in lipid research and technology development, anchored at the National University of Singapore. She focusses on the translation of mass spectrometry based technologies into clinical applications, primarily for lipids and small molecules. Anne is further passionate about training and education and has made substantial contributions to SLING’s various workshops and the highly successful ‘ic lipid’ training course. She serves on the ‘Clinical Lipidomics’ steering committee within the International Lipidomics Society, as Editor for the ‘Clinical Mass Spectrometry’ Elsevier journal, and is Lead of the Lipidomics track for the Mass Spectrometry: Application to the Clinical Lab (MSACL) EU conference, where she is also co-instructor of ‘Lipidomics 101’, the very first short course for clinical lipidomics. Early 2019 Anne co-founded the global initiative ‘Females in Mass Spectrometry’ (FeMS), serving as co-chair.
The research of Albert Heck (Utrecht University) focuses on the development and applications of advanced mass spectrometry-based proteomics technologies. Heck introduced TiO2 and Ti4+-IMAC based technologies for phospho-enrichment. Heck also pioneered the use of alternative proteases and hybrid peptide fragmentation techniques. Heck is additionally known for his expertise in mass spectrometry based structural biology, using native mass spectrometry, top-down proteomics, cross-linking and/or HD exchange mass spectrometry. The Heck-lab develops dedicated instruments for the analysis of intact proteins and protein complexes. Through the development of the XlinkX and PhoX his group also facilitated proteome wide cross-linking studies.
Heck is recipient of the HUPO Discovery Award (2013), and the Proteomics Pioneer Award from the European Proteomics Association (EuPA, 2014). He is elected member of EMBO and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences and Arts (KNAW), and recipient of the Spinoza Prize, the most distinguished scientific award in the Netherlands. In 2018 Heck received the Thomson medal (IMSF) and the Krebs medal (FEBS).
