The 7th CPC Symposium on Peptide Therapeutics

Oct 16, 2019 to Oct 18, 2019

Started in 2010, the CPC symposium has now become an annual scientific event that brings together scientific leaders in the peptide-based therapeutics from biopharmaceutical industries and academia. This year, “The 7th CPC Symposium on Peptide Therapeutics” will continue the tradition of the successful conferences from previous years. The meeting will offer a forum for scientific discussions of recent developments in the exciting field of peptide therapeutics. It will feature lectures on a broad range of topics including new technologies, drug discovery, CMC, and clinical developments.

4th Chemical Ligation Meeting

Jan 27, 2020 to Jan 29, 2020

Save the date! 4th Chemical Ligation Meeting, Orléans, 27-29 January 2020 We are pleased to invite you to participate to the symposium entitled: "Challenges and prospects in chemoselective ligations: from protein synthesis to site-specific conjugation" that will be held in Orléans (France), from Monday 27th to Wednesday 29th January 2020. This three-day international conference is jointly organized by Le STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies and the Centre for Molecular Biophysics – CNRS Orléans. This event will be held under the auspices of the French Peptide and Protein Group (GFPP) and follows three previous editions (Paris 2001, Lille 2008 and 2016) of short international meetings dedicated to chemical ligation. Fifteen invited speakers will cover the different aspects of chemical ligation in a broad sense, including biorthogonal chemistry, bioconjugation, late-stage peptide modification and protein chemical synthesis, from methodology development to biological applications. In addition, contributions selected from submitted abstracts will be presented as oral communication or poster presentation. More information can be found on the dedicated page on the GFPP website. Looking forward to seeing you in Orléans!

36th European Peptide Symposium and 12th International Peptide Symposium

Aug 30, 2020 to Sep 4, 2020

On behalf of the organizing committee, we invite you to join us at the 36th European and 12th International Peptide Symposium, to be held at Sitges (Barcelona), Spain, from August 30 to September 4, 2020.

The meeting, themed “From Peptides to the World”, will be an ideal occasion for academia and industry scientists from all over the world to learn and discuss about the thriving field of peptide science, exchanging ideas, creating new alliances, meeting old –and making new– friends.

The 36EPS scientific committee has set out to assemble an exciting program with a broad range of topics covering, among others, advances in peptide chemistry and structure, bioactive peptides and their therapeutic applications, and peptide biomaterials, nanotechnology and delivery. In addition, associated satellite meetings and workshops will take place.

The conference will take place at the Melià Sitges, a leading hotel and convention center with a 1200-seat auditorium and 4,000 square meters for commercial exhibition, poster sessions and coffee breaks, all within the pleasant setting of a 300-room establishment with outdoor pool, gardens and terraces overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Sitges, 40 km south of Barcelona and well-connected (every 30 min) by rail to Barcelona International Airport and Central Station, is a trendy resort with privileged location and mild Mediterranean climate favouring outdoor activities practically all year-round. Four kilometres of beach, fringed by a sea-front promenade dotted with artful colonial mansions facing the sea, provide a perfect excuse for strolling in this convivial town well-known for its open, inclusive, relaxed atmosphere.

The scientific and local organizing committees, supported by the EPS executive committee, are keen to make the 36EPS/12IPS a memorable, successful scientific event. Convinced that your presence will contribute to that, we look forward to meeting you in Sitges in 2020!

​Very best wishes,

Meritxell Teixidó
36EPS Symposium Chair
