The First Canadian Peptide and Protein Community Virtual Symposium

Organizing Committee: Éric Biron (Laval U), Voula Kanelis (UT), William D. Lubell (UdeM), Leonard G Luyt (UWO), David Perrin (UBC) and Jumi A. Shin (UT)

Peptides and proteins are remarkable natural biopolymers which inspire various fields of contemporary research. Moreover, they serve as components of a variety of medicines, catalysts, materials, cosmetics and agricultural products. Our virtual symposium brings together leading researchers at the cutting edge of peptide and protein science. With a broad focus and intent to promote the visibility of emerging scientists and young investigators, this two-day event will feature leaders in the characterization, synthesis and application of peptides and proteins in various domains targeted for improving basic knowledge and enhancing quality of life.
