As part of the 2021 edition of the Peptide Therapeutics Forum 2021, taking place as a hybrid conference in Basel and online, the SCS also offered a virtual poster session and honored the best contributions with the ‘Chemistry Europe’ Best Poster Award. Two of the three winners were present on-site and David Spichiger, SCS Executive Director, handed over the certificates and the vouchers of CHF 100 from Wiley online library to the happy winners:
