A Report on the 1st EPS Peptide Highlights Virtual Symposium

CONFERENCE REPORT 1st EPS Peptide Highlights Virtual Symposium Virtual event, 13 July 2021. A year and a half of conferences postponed or cancelled due to the pandemic has left the scientific world hungry for scientific exchange. That is why a new digital format was recently launched: The EPS Peptide Highlights Virtual Symposium. The idea of this EPS symposium format was to give a stage to young talented peptide scientists and junior group leaders and to Continue reading

A special issue of Applied Sciences “Antimicrobial Peptides: Synthesis, Properties and Applications”

Dear Colleagues, The urgency of finding new antimicrobial drugs is obvious if we consider the 10 million premature deaths estimated by 2050 due to antibiotic resistances (AMR) [O’Neill, J. 2014]. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) have appeared as an alternative to the commonly used antibiotics due to their antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral activities. Widening the knowledge in this field could have a big impact on the AMR issue. The aim of this Special Issue is to gather Continue reading

Virtual Peptide Social Hour on Zoom (May, 2021)

In the absence of in-person meetings, we have come together to help keep the global peptide community connected through a series of informal networking/social events. Our international events have been quite successful, and we would be delighted if you would join our next Zoom event. This hour-long event consists of three, 15-minute breakout rooms with 3-4 colleagues in each room to promote discussion and provide networking opportunities between diverse members of the peptide community. We Continue reading

Virtual Peptide Social Hour on Zoom

The European Peptide Society is pleased to announce the ‘Virtual Peptide Social Hour’ on Zoom, an initiative organized by Nina Hartrampf (Switzerland), Anne Conibear (Australia) and Wendy Hartsock (USA). This hour long event consists of three, 15-minute breakout rooms which promote discussion and provide networking opportunities between diverse members of the peptide community. So far, two events took place in December 2020 and January 2021, with participants from Europe, Australia, Africa and the US on Continue reading
