Dear Friends, Partners and Colleagues,

The 34th European Peptide Symposium and the 8th International Peptide Symposium that took place in Leipzig, Germany from Sept.4th-Sept 9th, 2016 were a great success!

Participants from 40 countries and all continents have attended this truly very international conference. Close to 700 participants gathered from all over the world and discussed all aspects of this prosperous field of peptide science –

– from chemical synthesis to biology!
– from Academia to Industry!

Please, find here the Proceedings of this event. The topics addressed all relevant aspects, including

  • New synthetic approaches to address current challenges
  • Foldamers – from structure to biomaterials
  • Peptides to Therapy
  • Imaging and modulation of enzymes and receptors
  • Peptides of the Future: Targeting intracellular systems and protein-protein interaction

In addition to 80 lectures, more than 300 posters have been presented and some of the presentations are now summarized in the Proceedings.

The European and International Peptide Symposium 2016 provided an excellent platform to exchange ideas on latest approaches and discoveries in all aspects of peptide science.
In addition to the excellent program the conference provided a superb opportunity to meet peers, build-up relationships and exchange views on recent scientific developments.
Thus, this meeting was interesting, challenging and informative.

Thank you for joining us! And remember Leipzig, this beautiful city in the heart of Germany, with a long tradition in science, culture and trade.
