European Kidney and Urine Proteomics

EuroKUP (Urine and Kidney Proteomics) (BM0702) is an Action sponsored by COST  (European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research) focusing on facilitating translational proteomic research in kidney diseases by bringing together and promoting interactions between basic scientists and clinicians working in the broader areas of kidney and urine proteomics. EuroKUP currently fosters a multi-disciplinary network of more than 120 members from 26 countries.

Four Working Groups (WG) focusing respectively on defining clinically important research questions in kidney diseases, kidney tissue proteomics, urine proteomics and bioinformatics have been generated. The decision-making body of EuroKUP is the Management Committee consisting of up to 2 representatives of participating COST countries.

Scientific meetings and various training activities on cutting-edge techniques are regularly organized.  Short term scientific missions (STSM) for junior investigators are also financially supported.
