Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I have the pleasure, both personally and officially as the Chairman of the Organizing Committee, to announce the upcoming Conference in the framework of FP7-REGPOT “SEEDRUG” Project, entitled:

NMR Applications in Life Sciences
Exploring Peptides & Proteins – A Tribute to Paul Cordopatis

This International Conference aims to bring together chemistry, molecular and structural biology and pharmacology and disclose the potential use of NMR in tackling important structure and functional issues of biological systems. The update of the biochemists’, biologists’ and pharmacologists’ community on latest achievements in peptide science, protein production & labeling, and the presentation of NMR structural biology applications is a specific aim of this Conference to be held from 18th to 20th June, 2015 at the Conference and Cultural Center of the University of Patras. In addition, in the context of the Conference, we will pay tribute to the late Professor Εmeritus Paul Cordopatis for his lifelong contribution and dedication to the Peptide Science and the University of Patras.

The Opening Lecture of the Conference will be presented by Prof. Kurt Wüthrich, Nobel Laureate 2002, by then also a Dr. Honoris Causa of the University of Patras (Ceremony on June 17th), and keynote lectures will be presented by a multitude of distinguished invited speakers, among them: F. Allain (CH), U. Akbey (DE), D. Andreu (ES), K. Barlos (GR), S. Bekiroglou (TR), R. Boelens (NL), J. Christodoulou (UK), I. Felli (IT), D. Fushman (US), T. Herrmann (FR), F. Hudecz (HU), B. Kalodimos (US), M. Kokkinidis (GR), G. Kokotos (GR), A. Liokatis (DE), C. Luchinat (IT), Th. Maina (GR), J. Martinez (FR), E. Moudrianakis (US), H Oschkinat (DE), T. Perrakis (NL), K. Petratos (GR), J. Plavec (SI), M. Pons (ES), H. Schwalbe (DE), N. Sgourakis (US), K. Tripsianes (CZ), P. Turano (IT) and G. Vakonakis  (UK).

A tentative Programmme and more information will be soon posted at the SEE-DRUG website (Meetings > Conference), while the final Programme will be ready by the end of May. The Conference attendance is free of charge, but it is necessary to notify us  and confirm your participation by email (end date June 5th).
Please feel free to contact me for more information or if you need guidelines regarding your accommodation in Patras.

Hoping to have the pleasure to welcome you in Patras next June.

Patras, April 2015

On behalf of
the Organizing Committee

Professor George A. Spyroulias
