Peptide Therapeutics Forum 2014 (MipTec)

Aim of the forum: disseminate information on latest developments & enable networking of interested parties from academia and industries.

Start Date 23.09.2014 - 08:30
Event End 23.09.2014 - 17:00
Location Congress Center Basel

The Peptide Therapeutics Forum 2014 will be divided up in a morning session on “Peptide Discovery” and afternoon presentations on “Development of therapeutic Peptides”. The first part provides some insight into latest methodologies for peptide synthesis and interesting projects more from a preclinical perspective. The afternoon session is dedicated to more advanced peptides. Topics to be discussed include intracellular delivery of peptides, diagnostic imaging and specific disease associated themes, e.g. peptides from the Incretin family to treat diabetes & obesity. This event is thought to disseminate information on latest developments in the broad field of therapeutic peptides and to enable networking of interested parties from academia and industries.
