Oxford Global Peptides Congress 2014 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences are proud to present the Pep­tides Con­gress 2014 tak­ing place April 3 – 4, 2014 at the Novo­tel Lon­don West, Lon­don, United King­dom. Our esteemed experts will explore recent devel­op­ments in pep­tide research from dis­cov­ery and syn­the­sis through to opti­mal engi­neer­ing tech­niques and ther­a­peu­tic applications.

    The pop­u­lar­ity of pep­tide ther­a­peu­tics has increased sig­nif­i­cantly in recent years; the num­ber of new pep­tides enter­ing the clinic has dou­bled, and pep­tide ther­a­pies in the US have achieved sales over $1 bil­lion. The Pep­tides Con­gress will bring together key deci­sion mak­ers and researchers in this revi­talised field. On Day One, the Con­gress will exam­ine var­i­ous pep­tide dis­cov­ery and syn­the­sis tech­niques, whilst look­ing in detail at the design and pro­duc­tion of pep­tide libraries and arrays, as well as syn­the­sised and mod­i­fied pep­tides. Our inter­na­tion­ally renowned speak­ers will also give a detailed insight into protein-​protein inter­ac­tions and the pro­duc­tion of bioac­tive peptides.

    Due to their com­pelling poten­tial, many major phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals are see­ing a resur­gence of pep­tide use in their pipelines. The ther­a­peu­tic poten­tial of pep­tides is being embraced by the indus­try, and offers many novel oppor­tu­ni­ties for drug dis­cov­ery. Day Two of the Con­gress will see dis­cus­sions focus on pep­tide engi­neer­ing, includ­ing pep­tidomimet­ics and pep­tide con­ju­ga­tion, as well as cell-​penetrating pep­tides for mol­e­c­u­lar imag­ing. Addi­tion­ally, our experts will dis­cuss the poten­tial of antimi­cro­bial pep­tides in immunother­apy and as pro­tease inhibitors in drug discovery.
