June 23-25 2016, join us at the 15th anniversary of the Naples Workshop on Bioactive Peptides, which will be held in Napoli (Italy) at the Centro Congressi of University of Naples "Federico II".
In the extraordinary scenery of the gulf of Naples we will share all the latest developments and future direction of peptide chemistry and applications. Colleagues and top scientists from all around the world will present their latest results on cutting edge areas of peptide research. The warm hospitality, the outstanding food and wine and the beauty of Pompei, Ercolano, Capri, and the Amalfi coast will certainly make your stay unforgettable.
The workshop starts in the morning of Thursday June 23rd; six sessions with plenary lectures, key notes and oral presentations and two poster sessions are scheduled. Structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies have always been a key feature and the most relevant aim of the various editions of the Naples Workshop, gathering peptide chemists interested in improving the biological properties of native peptides and convert them into more drug-like compounds.
The focus of the 15th edition of the workshop foresees the emerging and challenging developments of peptides in many fields such as Chemical Biology, Immunology, Pain Therapy, Theranostics, In-vivo imaging, Antimicrobial Activity, Chemical Ligation and Bioconiugation, Folding and Aggregation. A valuable and specific session will host top industries and their perspective on the current and future strategies.
Contributions concerning experimental and theoretical aspects in these topics are encouraged.
