The Solid Phase Peptide Synthesis Program will now start at 5pm on 12 October.
The registration desk will open at 4pm.


We are delighted to announce the 6th Modern Solid Phase Peptide Synthesis & Its Applications Symposium is being held at the Kingfisher Bay Resort, Fraser Island from Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th inclusive October, 2017. 

Continued and exciting advances in all aspects of the science of solid phase peptide synthesis, ranging from solid supports, instrumentation, chemistries and protocols, have allowed the acquisition of ever more complex and large biological targets. These include small proteins, de novo designed peptides with purposely conferred structural properties, cyclic peptides, post-translationally modified peptides and peptide-oligonucleotide conjugates. Importantly, these advances that have allowed access to this diverse array of peptide products have enabled a dramatic increase in the chemical, biological and medical applications of peptides.

This symposium provides a superb opportunity for all practitioners (and interested observers!) of solid phase peptide synthesis together with those who use synthetic peptides for a myriad of applications to gather at Fraser Island to discuss the latest developments over two and a half relaxed and convivial days.

Topics will include:

  • solid supports, protecting groups, synthesis strategies 
  • microwave enhanced solid phase peptide synthesis 
  • peptide libraries, arrays, combinatorial chemistry 
  • peptidomimetics 
  • cyclic peptides, cell penetrating peptides 
  • post-translationally modified peptides 
  • “difficult sequences”
  • industrial scale assembly 
  • industry, regulation and commercialization 
  • native chemical ligation 
  • chip-based technologies 
  • nanotechnology 
  • peptide therapy 
  • industry, regulation and commercialisation 
  • other themes 

Be sure to diarise 12-14 October 2017 now. We look forward to seeing you on Fraser Island then.

Best wishes,
