3rd Annual Oxford Global Peptides Congress 2016 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences are proud to announce the 3rd Annual Pep­tides Con­gress 2016 tak­ing place on 1819 April 2016, at the Novo­tel Lon­don West in Lon­don, UK. The event pro­vides a unique oppor­tu­nity for over 400 senior-​level bio­log­ics experts to net­work, exchange expe­ri­ences and engage in sci­en­tific dis­cus­sions about the cur­rent results and future chal­lenges of pep­tides research and ther­a­peu­tics. The con­fer­ence is co-​located with the 9th Annual Pro­teins & Anti­bod­ies Con­gress and 4th Annual Biosim­i­lars & Bio­bet­ters Con­gress.

    The pep­tides mar­ket rep­re­sents a rapidly expand­ing area of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal research. The improved pep­tide syn­the­sis tech­nolo­gies, recent devel­op­ments in macro­cyclic and cell-​penetrating pep­tides and the unques­tion­able vast poten­tial of pep­tides in ther­a­peu­tics all under­pin the promis­ing future that has been fore­casted for the indus­try. Experts have also high­lighted that the global pep­tide ther­a­peu­tics mar­ket will reach $23.7 bil­lion by 2020.

    Day 1 – Advances in Pep­tides Research and Technologies

    On day one our highly esteemed speak­ers will focus on the recent advance­ments in pep­tides research and tech­nolo­gies. Pre­sen­ta­tions will cover impor­tant areas such as novel for­mu­la­tion strate­gies for pep­tides, improved half-​life exten­sion meth­ods and updates in macro­cyclic, cell-​penetrating and cyclic pep­tides. Tech­no­log­i­cal advance­ments in pep­tide syn­the­sis, screen­ing and mod­i­fi­ca­tion will also be addressed.

    • Novel meth­ods for pep­tides screening
    • New tech­nolo­gies in pep­tides synthesis
    • Syn­the­sis of nat­ural pep­tides and their biosynthesis
    • Updates in cell-​penetrating pep­tides, cyclic and macro­cyclic peptides
    • Advances in pep­tides self-​assembly and macro­mol­e­c­u­lar assembly
    • Improv­ing pep­tide prop­er­ties: sta­bil­ity and half-​life extension
    • For­mu­la­tion strate­gies for peptides

    Day 2 – Case Stud­ies in Pep­tide Therapeutics

    On day two of the con­fer­ence del­e­gates will have the exclu­sive oppor­tu­nity to hear pre­sen­ta­tions cov­er­ing pep­tide ther­a­peu­tics. Our highly dis­tin­guished experts will dis­cuss the recent improve­ments in pep­tide drug deliv­ery sys­tems, util­is­ing pep­tides in the clinic and pep­tide drug con­ju­gates. Pre­sen­ta­tions will also extend to the excit­ing out­comes of antimi­cro­bial pep­tides research as well as pep­tide drug conjugates.

    • Updates in the pre­clin­i­cal and clin­i­cal development
    • Case stud­ies from ther­a­peu­tics: oncol­ogy, diabetes
    • Devel­op­ments in the phar­ma­col­ogy of peptides
    • Advance­ments in pep­tide drug deliv­ery systems
    • Pep­tide drug conjugates
    • Devel­op­ing suc­cess­ful pep­tide therapeutics
    • Util­is­ing pep­tides in the clinic
    • Antimi­cro­bial pep­tides and defensins
    • Har­mon­is­ing the guide­lines for pep­tide therapeutics

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested in sub­mit­ting a poster, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from senior sci­en­tists work­ing in indus­try and academia.

    How to sub­mit your abstract

    We will require:

    • Poster title, Abstract (200 words or less)
    • Prin­ci­pal author, Organ­i­sa­tion, Mail­ing address
    • Email, Tele­phone, Fax
