Peptide Therapeutics Forum 2020 Online Conference

August 17, 2020 to August 18, 2020

We are delighted to welcome you on the website of the Peptide Therapeutics Forum 2020, which will take place on 17th and 18th August 2020 as an online conference to fulfill the regulations of the government and to facilitate safe exchange of scientific information. The forum provides an innovative platform to exchange on the various aspects of drug development with a focus on peptides.

Similar to previous events in the framework of Basel Life, presentations highlight important new insights regarding the drug discovery of peptides including examples for successful development candidates. This forum should disseminate information on latest news in the broad field of therapeutic peptides and enable networking of interested parties from academia and industries.

36th European Peptide Symposium and 12th International Peptide Symposium

August 29, 2021 to September 3, 2021

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 29 to September 3, 2021.

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
