PepTalk 2017

Thank you to all who supported CHI’s 9th Annual PepTalk event!

Over 800 participants, representing over 20 countries gathered at the legendary Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, California for CHI’s PepTalk meeting. From attendees, to exhibitors, speakers, and sponsors this year's event was another great success for all involved.

Round TableDelegates enjoyed being able to create their own agenda by moving between the tracks and choosing the sessions that best fit their learning and networking needs.

Once again, BuzZ Session groups were a prominent feature of this event bringing together scientists from diverse areas who share a common interest in the discussion topic.

Over 45 researchers presented their current work during dedicated poster viewing sessions.

PepTalk 2010 continues the tradition of strong scientific programming comprising four pipelines that have expanded to twelve conferences.  The four distinct pipelines range from applying protein discovery research, to developing downstream protein characterization, formulation, and production that ultimately lead to clinical applications.  This focused design enables you to either stay within a specific pipeline or track hop, allowing you to design a custom conference that suits your research needs.
