Highly successful Dutch Peptide Symposium 2016 in Lelystad
Almost 200 scientists from over 10 different countries convened on June 3 rd for the Dutch Peptide Symposium 2016, this time hosted by Pepscan in its hometown Lelystad. What originally started as an annual meeting of only Dutch scientists has now matured to an international symposium with participants form over 10 different countries. Over 20 different sponsors made this event possible through their financial support.
This years’ meeting brought together scientists from academia and industry, and covered various aspects of peptide and protein chemistry as well as drug discovery and development, pharmacology, and structure-activity relationships.
The Scientific Program Committee managed to bring together a good selection of science and scientists, resulting in an exciting program with a top-notch list of both national as well as international speakers. Moreover, a selection of ~25 scientists presented exciting novel results on a poster. The conference program thus offered plenty of opportunities to listen to good science, and discuss the latest developments with colleagues in the field.
With a great peptide symposium under the belt, the Dutch peptide community now looks forward to the next edition, which will in 2017 be organized by the University of Eindhoven.
