GFPP Newsletter – October 2020

Dear Colleagues,

We wish you a happy new year 2021. Despite these so special circumstances, may it bring you success in your projects. We all hope that the sanitary situation will allow us to turn back to a more social life as soon as possible. The GFPP remains present to support you in your actions in order to maintain scientific exchanges as much as possible. We look forward to seeing you soon.

36th EPS European Peptide Symposium & 12th IPS International Peptide Symposium is postponed to 2022. The new dates for the Symposium are August 28th to September 2d, 2022 à Sitges (Spain). For further information, please visit the EPS website:


PEPPERSchool 2nd edition: The second edition of the international thematic school PEPPERSchool will take place in March 15th-18th, 2021. Given the current COVID-19 sanitary conditions, the event will take place virtually. For this purpose, GFPP will finance around 10 grants for PhD students: For more information, please visit the PEPPERSchool website:



The European Peptide Society is pleased to announce the ‘Virtual Peptide Social Hour’ on Zoom, an initiative organized by N. Hartrampf (Switzerland), A. Conibear (Australia) and W. Hartsock (US). This hour long event consists of three, 15-minute breakout rooms which promote discussion and provide networking opportunities between diverse members of the peptide community. So far, two events took place in December 2020 and January 2021, with participants from Europe, Australia, Africa and the US on every career level. The aim is to reach peptide scientists from as many locations and backgrounds as possible, therefore time zones are being set to accommodate the different locations. The next event on Wednesday 3rd February 2021 will be early morning in Europe (09:00 CET)/afternoon in Asia.
People who are interested can contact the organizers via to receive a link for registration.


The Symposium P at the next E-MRS 2021 (online meeting) dedicated to “Biohybrid nanomaterials: bioinspired, DNA- and peptide-based assemblies for sensing, delivery, and electronics” still accepts abstracts for oral communication until the deadline (January 28th).
