Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs) and Host Defence Peptides (HDPs)

The 10th International Meeting on Antimicrobial Peptides (IMAP 2023), originally scheduled for August 2020, took place in September 2023. The meeting was hosted by the University of Trieste.

The conference covered both the antimicrobial activity of peptides as well as their role in regulation and modulation of the immune system.

Financial Support
