The Proteomics Methods Forum

The Proteomics Methods Forum (PMF) was created to allow researchers in the UK, both academic and industrial, the opportunity to meet one another and to exchange information on any and all methods and techniques relevant to the practice of proteomics. The forum was initiated and is organised by proteomics researchers without affiliation to a particular vendor or group.

The PMF is open to anyone in the UK and Ireland who is engaged in proteomic research. It is aimed particularly at those who are actually working 'at the coal face' such as facility and laboratory managers, 'hands-on' PIs, post-docs, and technicians. Discussions concentrate on practical areas such as the details of experimental protocols, use of proteomics software, and hands-on tips for HPLC and mass spectrometry.

It is not intended that the PMF will supplant or compete with existing societies in the UK, such as the British Society for Proteome Research or the British Mass Spectrometry Society. These organisations already hold meetings and conferences related to proteomics.

Meetings are organised over an afternoon, evening and subsequent morning to ensure disruption to the participant's schedule is kept to a minimum. Meetings are split into themed sessions where experienced participants give brief presentations and significant time is allocated at the end for questions and discussion. The evening buffet and social gathering is an integral part of each meeting.
