based Materials and Technologies

University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK

March 2 - 4, 2015

Conference Venue

Technology & Innovation Centre, University of
Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK

Keynote Speaker

Sam Stupp

Northwestern University, USA

Prof. Sam Stupp is one of the pioneers in the field of peptide nanomaterials. He is currently Board of Trustees Professor of Materials Science, Chemistry and Medicine; Professor of Biomedical Engineering; Director, Simpson Querrey Institute for BioNanotechnology; Director, Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Center for Regenerative Nanomedicine at Northwestern University.

Poster Prize

There will be a Poster Prize for young researchers kindly sponsored by the Protein & Peptide Science Group of the RSC. More information will be available soon.

Sponsorship & Exhibition

There will be a trade exhibition located in the poster / refreshments area throughout the meeting. Contact us for more details about this and other sponsorship opportunties.

Earlybird Registration Deadline extended for Poster Authors

We have had an excellent response with many poster abstracts already submitted. However, the new TIC offers room for more posters than we thought. To encourage participation by early stage researchers, we are continuing to offer reduced rate registration to all student and Post-Doc poster authors.

Poster abstract deadline: February 13, 2015

For more information visit the Programme & Abstracts page.
