Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to PSI-2018 event!

It gives me immense pleasure to invite you for the 10th Annual Meeting of the Proteomics Society, India (PSI) and the International Conference on “Proteomics for Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine” being organized at the National Centre for Cell Science (NCCS), Pune, India from 12-14 December, 2018. This is a special occasion for NCCS and the PSI as it is hosting the 10th anniversary meeting of the society.

This International meeting aims at bringing together national and International researchers working in the areas of proteomics, metabolomics and cell biology under one umbrella to exchange scientific ideas and foster future collaborations. The themes of this conference include proteomics in cell biology; PTMs and splice variants; cancer proteogenomics; systems biology and bioinformatics; clinical proteomics; metabolomics and disease markers; plant and animal proteomics; proteomics for infectious diseases; interaction proteomics; recent advances in proteomics applications; proteomics in molecular medicine.

PSI2018 meeting will also organise other academic programs include education day, pre- and post-conference workshops, poster sessions and other opportunities for interacting distinguished scientists. This meeting will be attended by distinguished speakers including Dr. John Yates, Dr. Philip Andrews, Dr. Richard Vachet, Dr. Jennifer Van Eyk, Dr. David Fenyo, Dr. Bing Zhang, Dr. Karl Clauser, Dr. Stephen Pennington, Dr. Akhilesh Pandey, Dr. Arun Sreekumar, Dr. Chunaram Choudhary and others who will address large gatherings. Participants will also get an opportunity to listen to the PSI senior members Dr. Utpal Tatu, Dr. Ravi Sirdeshmukh, Dr. Rakesh Mishra, Dr. Subhra Chakraborty, Dr. Shantanu Sengupta, and others. As a tradition of PSI to give an opportunity to younger PSI members, Dr. Siddhesh Kamat, Dr. Ramesh Ummanni, Dr. Amol Suryawamshi, Dr. Tushar Maiti and others will give talks during conference.

The venue for this event, Pune, is the second largest city in the state of Maharashtra and is located around 150 kilometers south-east of Mumbai by road. It is a beautiful city, surrounded by hills rising to 800m (2600 ft.) above the sea. Pune is also the cultural capital of the state of Maharashtra, and is famous for its education, arts and crafts, music and theatres. The major tourist attractions near Pune are Lonavala, Mahabaleshwar, Lavasa, Shaniwar wada, Pratapgad fort, Karla caves and many more.

With warm regards,
