4th International Meeting on Antimicrobial Peptides (IMAP) 2014 Graz

  • Conference Call
  • The Insti­tute of Mol­e­c­u­lar Bio­sciences, Bio­physics Divi­sion at the Uni­ver­sity of Graz orga­nizes on Sep­tem­ber 29 – 30, 2014 the 4th Inter­na­tional Meet­ing on Antimi­cro­bial Pep­tides (IMAP) suc­ceed­ing the meet­ings in Leipzig and Lon­don. You are cor­dially invited to par­tic­i­pate in this meet­ing, which will be held at the Aula of the Uni­ver­sity of Graz, Aus­tria.

    Inter­na­tional top level researchers are invited as ple­nary speak­ers, who will cover the field from basic stud­ies on com­plex model sys­tems to the devel­op­ment of poten­tial ther­a­peu­tic com­pounds. The focus will be on recent devel­op­ments to improve stud­ies on the mol­e­c­u­lar mechanism(s) and to opti­mize lead com­pounds that might help us to over­come the cur­rent threats caused by multi-​resistant bac­te­ria and biofilms. All par­tic­i­pants are encour­aged to sub­mit abstracts that will be selected for either oral presentation.

    There will be a full pro­gramme of talks and posters based around three main themes:

    • Com­plex model sys­tems and mech­a­nis­tic studies
    • Biofilms and Implant Coatings
    • Aspects towards the devel­op­ment of novel therapeutics

    Abstracts on all aspects of antimi­cro­bial pep­tide research are invited and will be selected for either oral or poster presentation.
