Record Attendance at PepTalk 2013! Over 1,000 participants gathered in Palm Springs, California for the 12th Annual PepTalk: The Protein Science Week, January 21-25. Palm Springs, California known as the ultimate desert playground for outdoor adventure, arts and entertainment provided hospitality, culture, and an ideal destination for the event.

The week kicked-off with interactive short courses providing focused topics and invaluable networking opportunities.

The networking continued throughout the week during dedicated exhibit hall hours, evening receptions, roundtable discussions, and informal gatherings poolside with the dessert scenery as a backdrop.

Delegates enjoyed the flexibility to move between session rooms enabling them to create an agenda to best fit their learning and networking needs.

Thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors for your support and contribution, 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 January 13 – 17, 2014!
