Time to the meeting

The 2nd edition of the “Noncanonical amino acids (ncAAs): Tools for Biological and Biophysical Investigations” meeting will be held on October 14th and 15th, 2024 in Paris. The conference is jointly organized by Sorbonne Université and CY Cergy-Paris Université and the GFPP (Groupe Français des Peptides et Protéines – French Peptides Society) will partner with this event.

This event will be held in Campus des Cordeliers (15 rue de l’Ecole de Médecine, Paris 6e). It will bring together up to 150 participants, chemists and biologists from public and private sectors. The scientific program will span the interface between chemistry and biology, with the participation of prestigious international speakers.
A considerable part of the congress program will be dedicated to communications presented by young scientists: about 15 oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts, and ample space will be available for poster communications. The proceedings of the congress will be published in the form of an abstract book, and partners who agree to sponsor this congress will be acknowledged upfront in this book, as well as on the ncAA website.

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