The symposium is jointly organized by the School of Biological Sciences and the NTU-Institute of Advanced Studies (NTU-IAS) in honor of Professor James P. Tam's outstanding research works and lifetime achievements in Peptide Science and Drug Discovery. It will cover many exciting fields of peptide and protein research including chemistry, structure and function, and applications in medicine and materials science.

We hope that this symposium would provide a platform for our participants to present and learn about the current forefront of peptide / protein science and drug discovery; as well as to exchange ideas and establish research collaborations or business relations across both academia and industry.

We look forward to welcoming you in Singapore!
