About the Conference
The International Plant Proteomics Organization (INPPO) is an international scientific organization representing and promoting plant proteomics through international cooperation and collaborations by fostering the development of new technologies, techniques and training.

In 2011, a group of plant proteomic researchers established the International Plant Proteomics Organization (INPPO) to advance the utilization of this technology in plants as well as to create a way for plant proteomics researchers to interact, collaborate and exchange ideas (see Founding Members). Since 2014, the INPPO is organizing biannual meetings, held in Hamburg (Germany; 2014), Bratislava (Slovakia; 2016), Padova (Italy; 2018).Toronto, Canada (Virtual) (2020), Thessaloniki, Greece (2022). These congresses mark the essential steps in raising plant proteomes to the same level as those of other systems, including humans and microbes.

Jennifer Geddes-McAlister
University of Guelph
Dr. Jennifer Geddes-McAlister is a Canada Research Chair in the Proteomics of Fungal Disease in One Health and an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Guelph. Her lab applies mass spectrometry-based proteomics to investigate host-pathogen interactions with a focus on One Health approaches to overcoming fungal disease. She has won five early career researcher awards in recognition of her scientific contributions since beginning her lab in 2018 and an alumni achievement award from the University of Lethbridge. Dr. Geddes-McAlister is President of the Canadian National Proteomics Network, Director of the Bioinformatics Graduate Programs at the University of Guelph, co-founder of the Canadian Proteomics and Artificial Intelligence Consortium, and founder of ‘Moms in Proteomics’ an initiative dedicated to recognizing and supporting mothers in STEM.

R. Glen Uhrig
University of Alberta
Dr. R. Glen Uhrig is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Alberta. Dr. Uhrig’s group is focused on the development of novel quantitative proteomic workflows for plants and the application of mass spectrometry-based proteomics to understand diel plant biology under multiple stress conditions. Dr. Uhrig is also an Alberta Science and Technology award winner (2022) for his groups Application of Technology in Agri-food Production. Dr. Uhrig is a board member of the Canadian National Proteomics Network and the lead of the Plant Cell Atlas Proteomics Committee.
