The Peptide Showcase will bring together thought leaders in biotech, pharma, and academic institutions to present the most current of paradigms in peptide therapeutics, and to uncover solutions to challenges in peptide drug discovery and development. Peptide Showcase East will be an opportunity for companies to "showcase" new ideas, technologies, and pipeline assets in short business oriented presentations. An electronic partnering forum will be used for pre-arranged one-on-one business meetings between technology providers, licensing partners, and investors. Modeled after the highly successful Peptide Showcase held annually at the Boulder Peptide Symposium, this event, with support from Ipsen, a founding sponsor and world leader in peptide therapeutics, will focus exclusively on innovations in the peptide therapeutics technology space. The event will be held at the Microsoft New England Research and Development Center, located in Kendall Square; Cambridge’s’ iconic innovation district,.
