Synopsis:

In keeping with CEEPC intentions and ethos, Poland was invited to join the CEEPC in 2013 and is now hosting the CEEP conference in Poland for the second time; the first one being the 9th CEEPC in Poznań in 2015.  This second Conference - the 13th CEEPC was successfully hosted in Ustron in September 2019.  This ‘spot-light focus’ gives an insight into 'Proteomics & Poland'
