Welcome

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

Noncanonical amino acids : Tools for biological and biophysical investigations

Co-organized with the French Peptides and Proteins Group (GFPP), this symposium will be held in Paris (France), from Monday 21st to Tuesday 22nd october 2019.

This two-day international symposium will focus on the emergent use of noncanonical amino acids (ncAAs) in peptide and protein science. It will bring together chemists, biochemists, biologists and biophysicists involved in the development of new technologies using ncAAs and in their application to biological questions.

A wide range of topics ranging from synthetic methodologies to applications in biology and biophysics will be covered. Contributions related to the synthesis of ncAAs and their incorporation in polypeptides by means of chemical or biological approaches will be considered. This includes methodological developments in solid phase peptide synthesis, cell-free expression, engineered host strains or aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase engineering. Applications in the field of chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, biomaterials science or biophysical studies will be particularly welcome.

The meeting will take place at Sorbonne University on October 21st-22nd 2019. The official language of the meeting will be English. Contributions will be presented as oral communication (15 min) or poster presentation.

All participants will have to register online. For any enquiry, please contact us.

Looking forward to seeing you in Paris!
