Symposium „Peptide Chemistry Day“ at University of Zagreb

The Symposium entitled "Peptide Chemistry Day" will be held on Thursday, 19th September 2019 at the University of Zagreb (Zvonimirova ulica 8).

The aim of the symposium is to bring together all the research scientists who work on different aspects within the field of peptide science. Beside presentations of research results, we would like to stimulate all forms of collaboration and networking. Younger colleagues and students are especially encouraged to participate in this event.

The symposium is organized by the University of Zagreb.

This symposium is a scientific part of the celebration of the 350th academic year of the University of Zagreb and celebrates 45 years of systematic scientific research of peptides in Croatia.

There is no registration fee.

Official languages of the symposium are Croatian and English.

The application deadline is 12th September, 2019.
