The annual Cascadia Proteomics Symposium brings together Proteomics Researchers from the Northwest region, Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia, to discuss current Proteomics Research, get to know each other better, share ideas and foster collaboration within this region. The program includes interactive oral and discussion sessions, as well as poster presentations with appetizers, wine and cheese sessions to foster mingling.

The 2019 symposium will return to the Institute for Systems Biology and will be held July 8-9. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
