ABSTRACT SUBMISSION COMING SOON

Invitation for poster presentations

The Peptide Therapeutic Symposium has established a tradition of highlighting a limited number (maximum 30) presentations into the program of distinguished lectures.  Posters will be available for viewing throughout the two day period, including a formal poster session held in conjunction with the Opening Reception on Thursday evening, October 22nd.  We encourage interested scientists and researchers to submit an abstract summarizing current research in the following areas of peptide science:

Suggested topics for poster presentations include, but are not limited

  • Peptide Therapeutics & Related Bioactive Molecules
  • Complementary Pharmacology of Peptides, Proteins & Conventional Drugs
  • Peptides as Diagnostics, Probes & Biomarkers
  • Commercial Synthesis & Formulation of Peptides
  • Alternative Approaches in Peptide Administration
  • Peptide Immunogenicity & Toxicology
  • Pharmacokinetics, Biodistribution & Cellular Transport
  • Peptide Synthetic Methodologies
  • Peptidomics & Peptide Discovery

Submission Guidelines

  • Up to 250 words (about ½ page) of text and diagrams (if any) summarizing research.  The 250 words exclude title, authors, affiliations and footnotes (if any)
  • All abstracts must be submitted on-line, using the form provided

Travel Grants

The Peptide Therapeutics Foundation will provide a limited number of travel grants to offset the cost of attending the symposium.

Eligibility criteria

  • Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students who submit a poster abstract are eligible to apply for a travel grant.
  • Only one travel grant will be awarded per academic group.
  • Locally based postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are not eligible to apply for a travel grant but are still eligible for registration fee waiver.

Awards will be competitive and based on the quality of the abstract submission.
The Program Committee will review the abstracts and select the award recipients.

When submitting your abstract, please include the approximate cost of travel to attend the symposium.  The amount of the Travel Grant you are awarded will be based on the estimate you turn in.  If you are awarded a travel grant you will be reimbursed for the travel related receipts turned in up to but not in excess of your estimated amount.  Recipients of the travel grants will be required to provide proof of purchase prior to award payment.
