A San Diego Welcome!
CHI returned to San Diego to hold its 14th Annual PepTalk: The Protein Science Week, January 19-23 with record-breaking attendance. This international event was attended by nearly 1,300 participants including conference delegates, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and guests and represented over 30 countries. Participants valued the in-depth short courses, access to six concurrent pipelines with wide-ranging podium talks covering upstream protein R&D science to downstream biologics, lively BuzZ Session roundtables and convenient planning via the mobile app.
Plenary Keynote John Yates captured the attention of all participants as he delivered a compelling presentation about the advances and trends in proteomics.
The vast exhibit hall was packed with over 85 exhibiting companies showcasing the latest technologies and services, featured more than 85 scientific posters on display, and provided abundant networking with biopharmaceutical researchers and industry representatives.
Poster Competition Winners were awarded cash prizes and recognized during the poster award ceremony. The winners are:
I. Cassie Liu of Stanford University
Engineering a Bispecific Protein from a Single-Domain, Bivalent Protein Scaffold View PDF
II. Gavin McGauran of University College Dublin
Utilisation of EF-Tag Technology for Protein Purification and High Throughput Screening View PDF
III. Sergei P. Boudko of Shriners Hospitals for Children
Hetero-Trimerization Domain of Type IX Collagen: A Unique Tool for Hetero-Specific Combinatorial Libraries View PDF
We have already received numerous comments praising the work that was done at the event, but we would still like to hear from you on more specific questions to help us deliver new ideas, and develop the agenda and schedule for 2016. If you would like to share your feedback, or give input for next year’s event, please contact Mary Ann Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors for your support and contributions, and to all the delegates for your participation. The success of this event is largely due to the dedicated participants that return with us year after year. Save the date to join us again next year in San Diego, January 18-22, 2016.
