Peptide Conferences

Peptide Conferences is an organisation dedicated to running high quality scientific meetings in the Peptide Sciences. We work with a number of learned societies and other academic bodies to bring together world-leading researchers in an environment conducive to exchange of ideas and information, networking and development of collaborations.

The future success of the field depends on the professional development of young researchers - graduate students and PostDocs (PDRAs). To encourage their active participation, significant student and PDRA discounts are available for all meetings organised by Peptide Conferences.

Supporting & Partner Organisations

Conferences have been held under the auspices of a number of learned societies, all of which have provided invaluable practical support and some of which have also provided financial support. We are mosst grateful to these organisations for their help. For more information about these societies, please viist their websites.

Meeetings organised by Peptide Conferences are held under the auspices of the Protein & Peptide Science Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The European Peptide Society provided financial support for Peptide Arrays 2011 and Nanopeptide 2012.

Nanopeptide 2012 was held under the auspices of the Macro Group UK.

The British Biophysical Society provided financial support for the Peptide Arrays 2011 meeting and Nanopeptide 2012 was held under its auspices.

Peptide Arrays 2013


September 3-4, 2013

Peptide Arrays 2013 built on the success of the first meeting, held in London in 2011. The keynote talk was given by Prof. Mark Bradley of the Univeristy of Edinburgh. Invited speakers came from North America, continental Europe, Israel and the UK. Subjects covered included the use of peptide arrays in epitope mapping and to explore other protein interactions in cell biology, cancer and other biomedical applications. In addition, sessions covered new array technologies and the physics, biophysics and bioengineering applications of peptide arrays. There was also a full programme of talks and posters selected from submitted abstracts.

Programme Committee: Dr. George Baillie (University of Glasgow), Prof. Robin Leatherbarrow (Imperial College, London).

For more information, visit the Peptide Arrays website.

3rd International Meeting on Antimicrobial Peptides


September 23-24, 2013

The third in the series of meetings on antimicrobial peptides followed the successful 1 day meeting held in Leipzig, Germany, in August 2012.

Programme Committee: Prof. Brian Austen (St. Georges, University of London), Dr. KaI Hilpert (St. Georges, University of London), Prof. Ralf Hoffmann (University of Leipzig).
