XII EPI – Encontro Peptídico Ibérico / Iberian Peptide Meeting

Venue & accomodation
& Keynote Speakers

Peptides across disciplines

From organic chemistry to biotechnology; from biochemistry to cell biology; from bench to clinic; from theory to all kinds of applications, peptides are everywhere in science and technology. Peptide science has grown across all disciplines and expanded to unprecedented levels. The challenge today is to cope with interdisciplinarity. The times call for collaboration and cooperation between groups of different expertises and views. The XII EPI will serve this endeavour, gathering academic and industrial researchers devoted to peptides. It will not be organized around disciplines or sectors. The contributions to the final programme will not be pooled or grouped. The eclectic “all-matters-all” spirit and outlook has been an inspiring mark of EPI. Also, we strongly encourage the participation and active engagement of young researchers in presenting their work in oral form. EPI is the right audience and discussion forum for them.

We’re expecting you in Lisbon!
