PathProt-8 group (October 2015).

What is PathProt?

PathProt is the international forum for Pathway Analysis in Proteomics. We are an informal discussion group that meets annually to brainstorm, since 2008.
Our annual workshop is an ideal setting for open-minded, unbiased opinion-making. We pick on themes, listen to invited and submitted talks, discuss freely and summarize the results. The attendees are simply interested parties, wishing to get informed and participate in the discussions. There is always a healthy variety of academic backgrounds and industrial ties.
The format of Pathprot meetings follows the "un-workshop" model, in which we dedicate significantly bigger amounts of time to discussions, and less to talks. We will also dedicate specific time to review recent scientific literature .
And, of course, plenty of local experiences, to make it fully enjoyable, in the portuguese way.

The net result of holding a scientinfic meeting in this fashion is the natural emergence of collaboration in a variety of forms: the free sharing of ideas easily results in the recognition of the benefits of exchanging students, writing grant applications and papers together, etc.
