Welcome

Regarding the worldwide situation about the COVID-19, we are sorry to announce that the conference “Cell-penetrating peptides: Next generation delivery systems” will be postponed.

We are doing our best to find an adequate new date as soon as possible during 2021-2022.

We are pleased to invite you to participate to the symposium entitled:

Cell-Penetrating Peptides: Next generation delivery systems

Co-organized with the French Peptides and Proteins Group (GFPP), this symposium will be held in Montpellier (France), from Monday 27th to Wednesday 29th of April 2020.

The meeting will take place in the Aimé Schoenig lecture hall at Montpellier University.

This 3-days international symposium will focus on:

  • Design and synthesis of CPPs, peptide-based nanoparticles, and other peptide-based delivery systems
  • Biophysical, biochemical and/or cell biology approaches to study their interaction with model and/or biological membranes
  • In vivo studies and therapeutic/clinical applications of peptide-based delivery systems

We hope you will join this event and you are cordially invited to contribute an oral (10 min) or a poster presentation. The official language of the meeting will be English.

Looking forward to seeing you in Montpellier!
