9th Peptoid Summit


Technical Program

We have four exciting sessions lined up that will cover the chemistry, biology, computational and nanoscience aspects of peptoids. There is a distinguished international group of speakers, and a nice mix of student, post-doc and PI presenters. New for this Summit will be a Lightning Round session, where there will be an open mic, and any attendee can present anything they want for 3 minutes. It will be a great way to learn more about what our colleagues are up to.  There will also be a poster session complete with refreshments, and a nice catered dinner will also be provided (included in your registration) on Thursday evening.  We encourage you to stay Friday afternoon for the Summit BBQ where scientific discussions can continue.
