The 2018 Naples Workshop on Bioactive Peptides once again brings together leading scientists from academia and pharma and biotech industries to present most advanced studies in peptide science.
After the first edition in 1988, the 2018 workshop, 30 years from the beginning, will be the 16th edition of this internationally well known meeting and is entitled to “The exciting role of peptides in life-science”.
The workshop is scheduled on June 7th-9th 2018 and will be held in Napoli (Italy) at the Centro Congressi of University of Naples “Federico II”.
The workshop starts in the morning of Thursday June 7th; six sessions with plenary lectures, key notes and oral presentations and two poster sessions are scheduled.
A peptide showcase is also scheduled to give the opportunity to companies developing peptide therapeutics and related technologies to present their perspectives on the current and future strategies.
Structure-activity relationship studies have always been a key feature and the most relevant aim of the various editions of the Naples Workshop, gathering peptide chemists interested in improving the biological properties of native peptides and convert them into more drug-like compounds.
The focus of the 16th edition of the workshop foresees the emerging and challenging developments of peptides in many fields such as Chemical Biology, Immunology, Antimicrobial Activity, Diagnostic and therapeutic applications, Peptide mimetics, Chemical Ligation and Bioconjugation, Folding and Aggregation.
Contributions concerning experimental and theoretical aspects in these topics are encouraged.
The meeting is held under the auspices and the sponsorship of The European Peptide Society, the Italian Peptide Society, and the National Research Council of Italy (CNR).
Chairman of the workshop: prof. Giancarlo Morelli
