Each year, the Boulder Peptide Symposium is organized around a theme. The SAB has designed a meeting for 2014 that will be focused broadly on peptides in infectious disease, including anti-virals, anti-microbials, and neglected diseases. Special emphasis will be given to platform technologies designed to create constrained peptide structures with improved properties.
The Boulder Peptide Symposium is a nonprofit organization. More information about the mission and the annual meeting can be found on the website at www.boulderpeptide.org.
The 8th Annual meeting will take place at the St. Julien Hotel and Spa in Boulder Colorado on Sept 22 to 24, 2014.
