2nd Belgian Peptide Meeting
February 10-11, 2014
Het Pand Conference Center
After a successful first meeting in February 2012, with about 180 participants from academia and industry, the organizing committee has the pleasure to announce a second Belgian Peptide Group meeting organized under the auspices of the European Peptide Society. The event will take place on February 10th and 11th, 2014 at the conference center “Het Pand” in the heart of the beautiful historic city of Ghent.
We will have four invited speakers : Helma Wennemers (ETH Zürich), Meritxell Teixidó (IRB, Barcelona), Paul Alewood (IMB, Brisbane) and Gilles Subra (IBMM, Montpellier) and plenty of opportunities for presentations by the participants, including the possibility for poster presentation.
This meeting intends to cover various aspects of peptide research: synthesis, identification, pharmacology, drug discovery and development, delivery, peptide production,… etc. It will also be a great opportunity for PhD students and young scientists to learn about the many aspects of peptide research, and to discuss about peptide chemistry and biology with experienced researchers.
To facilitate participation, the registration fee for PhD students has been limited to 50€ per person, including lunches and coffee breaks. Registration fee for all other participants is 150€. Affordable accommodation will be available at the charming Monasterium Poortackere, and other hotels of varying class are within walking distance. Please block these dates in your agenda.
We are convinced that this meeting will stimulate fruitful discussions and will be an opportunity to have interesting new contacts. Your participation will be crucial for making this initiative a success. For further information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
