Highly successful Dutch Peptide Symposium 2017 in Eindhoven

Around 250 scientists convened on June 8 for the Dutch Peptide Symposium 2017, this time hosted by the Chemical Biology Department of TU Eindhoven. What originally started as an annual meeting of only Dutch scientists has now matured to an international symposium with participants from 15 different countries. Over 20 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, around45 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.

The Dutch peptide community now looks forward to the next edition, which will in 2018 be organized by the University of Maastricht. For the abstract book and a photo impression of the Dutch Peptide Symposium 2017, go to www.dutchpeptidesymposium.com.
