We invite you to join us at the 13th Australian Peptide Conference, which will be held at the Oaks Resort (formerly known as QT Resort), Port Douglas, Queensland, Australia, from the 8th to 13th September 2019.
The theme of the meeting is “Peptides - Turning the Tide”. The conference organising committee is currently assembling an exciting scientific program containing a mix of peptide synthesis and discovery, engineering, characterisation, structure-based drug design, therapeutics development and technological advances in the field.
Continuing our tradition of holding meetings in a relaxed seaside environment, Port Douglas is one of Australia’s most beautiful tropical locations, with easy access to beautiful beaches, coral reef, stunning National Parks, rainforests, rivers and home to exotic native animals.
We look forward to seeing you there!
