NMR Applications in Life Sciences
Exploring Peptides & Proteins-A Tribute to Paul Cordopatis

17-20 June 2015
Conference & Cultural Center of the University of Patras

This International Conference aims to bring together chemistry, molecular and structural biology and pharmacology and disclose the potential use of NMR in tackling important structure and functional issues of biological systems. The update of the biochemists’, biologists’ and pharmacologists’ community on latest achievements in peptide science, protein production & labeling, and the presentation of NMR structural biology applications is a specific aim of this conference.

In addition, in the context of the conference, we will pay tribute to the late Emeritus Professor Paul Cordopatis for his lifelong contribution and dedication to peptide science and the University of Patras.
