When Slovakia was asked if they wanted to host the 11th CEEPC, there was no hesitation.  To this end the Organising committee under the auspices of Dr. Mangesh Bhide put together a fascinating conference program and sent out invitations welcoming participants from all over the world to Kosice.  The Conference was a  phenomenal success and the participants were treated to an excellent program of Proteomics and local hospitality.



                                           Organizing Committee


The CEEP Conference was opened with speeches from the Assistant Mayor of Kosice, and Rector of the University in presence of dignitaries, the scientific committee and an international audience.

This was followed by an opening lecture from one of the Founder member of the CEEPC  - Dr. Suresh Jivan Gadher, who highlighted the present day challenges of proteomics and the progress that CEEPC had made over more than a decade of these series of conferences.  The theme was interconnectivity without borders or boundaries for the benefit of the younger generation as well as advancement of Systems Biology towards better patient stratification, precision medicine and global threats such as Zika and Ebola.  The societal challenges of  today including neurological diseases, ageing population needs and need for personalised medicine were also emphasised. 


A welcome message slide to participants from Dr. Hana Kovarova (Czech Academy of Sciences, Libechov) who laid the foundation to the birth of the 1st CEEPC in 2007 and current stalwart visionary founder kicked off the 11th CEEP Conference in style.

               Kosice Medzinarodny Maraton Mieru  - (translation - Kosice International Peace Marathon)  



The Košice Peace Marathon is the oldest marathon in Europe and the second-oldest in the world – first being the Boston Marathon in the USA. The first race was held in 1924.  Since then, the marathon takes place each year on the first Sunday in October. This year, the Central and Eastern European Proteomic Conference (CEEPC) successfully merged into the race weekend to enjoy a historical coming together with the elites of the World and to fully participate in this prestigious occasion. 




Interestingly, both the CEEPC ethos and objectives and those of the Košice Peace Marathon are one and the same, which are to excel in individual endeavors (Proteomics and Sports) whilst keeping at the forefront of our minds the everyday aspects of humanity, peace, and betterment of social and human health and life.  Below are snippets - we hope you enjoy these.
