Latest Conference

10th International Meeting on Antimicrobial Peptides (IMAP 2023) took place at the University of Trieste, Italy from September 6 - 8, 2023.

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 several meetings, including the IMAP series.

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.

Tom McAllister – Newcastle University

Investigating Protein O-glycosylation

Abstract: Carbohydrates are involved in many important biological processes across all Kingdoms of life including how organisms recognise pathogens, how cancers can spread and the basis of the different A/B/O blood groups in humans. Glycosylation (modification with carbohydrates) is the most abundant and complex form of protein post-translational modification. Glycosylation of asparagine residues, N-glycans, is well established but other modifications such as the O-glycans formed by modifications of serine and threonine residues, are less well understood. Research in the McAllister group focuses on investigating the biosynthesis of O-glycans as well as methods to produce homogeneous O-glycopeptides/glycoproteins in order to decipher the role of specific glycans at specific sites.


Dr Andrew Giltrap – The Rosalind Franklin Institute

Recent Advances in Radical Mediated Protein Editing

Abstract: After translation at the ribosome many proteins are adorned with so-called post translational modifications (PTMs) (e.g. methylation, glycosylation, phosphorylation etc) which impart specific structural and functional changes. A key challenge in developing chemical methods to produce modified proteins is the number of reactive functional groups present leading to chemo- and regio- selectivity issues, making the installation of truly native modifications extremely difficult. This has limited our ability to gain insights into how these modifications govern biological processes. One particularly promising approach to solve this problem is the use of radical chemistry. Here recent advances utilising this approach to site-specifically modify proteins, allowing for the installation of diverse functional groups, as well as approaches for in vivo protein editing will be detailed.
