The 12th Annual
Peptide Therapeutics

The Salk Institute – La Jolla, CA
October 26 – 27, 2017

Register Now


The Peptide Therapeutics Symposium was established in 2005 as an annual scientific meeting that brings together world leaders in peptide research from academia and the biopharmaceutical industries.  The meeting’s focus is advances in core technology pertinent to peptide-based drug discovery and therapeutic candidate development.  The unique format provides an intense set of lectures through a period of just over twenty-four hours, starting midday Thursday and concluding end of day Friday.

Please join us for the 12th Annual Peptide Therapeutics Symposium taking place October 26th and 27th, 2017 at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California.  This year’s Symposium continues the tradition of excellence in presenting ‘best of the best’ advances in the field of peptide therapeutics.

Registration is limited given the finite capacity of the auditorium.  The last two years we were unable to accommodate the full demand and we expect that to be the case this year.  We encourage you to inspect the program and register early.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event.
