We invite you to join us at the 13th Australian Peptide Conference, which will be held at the 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 with cutting edge areas of peptide research including advances in peptide synthesis, peptide signaling, peptide libraries, peptide microarrays, bioactive peptides, nanotechnology, transcriptomics, proteomics, drug delivery and clinical applications.
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!

Located in far North Queensland, Port Douglas is a 67km scenic coastal drive north from Cairns. It’s known for its beach resorts, relaxed atmosphere and as a base for visits to both the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest reef system, and Daintree National Park, home to biodiverse rainforest. In town, Macrossan Street is lined with boutique shops and restaurants. Curving south is popular Four Mile Beach. Port Douglas was No. 3 on Australian Traveller magazine’s list of 100 Best Towns In Australia.
The QT resort is a spectacular resort located on the way into Port Douglas boasting fabulous conference facilities and fresh rooms.
