BIT Life Sciences is proud to announce that PepCon-2008 will be held during April 19-21, 2008 in Shenzhen, a world-renowned coastal city in southern China, Hong Kong being shortly near in the south. This international event will focus on the cutting edge peptide and protein researches with the theme of Peptide & Protein Technology: From Concept to Market. On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially invite you to attend our conference and bring your most updated information to exchange exciting ideas and new achievements during the conference.

This conference will feature an outstanding experience both scientifically and socially. Also, the oriental culture makes China a fascinating and pleasant place to congregate with old colleagues and new friends to share the most important aspects of many exciting and rapid advances in peptide and protein researches. PepCon-2008 will cover the frontier protein sciences, proteomics, system biology, enable technologies such as protein chips, protein microarray, protein/peptides as therapeutics and diagnostics, peptide and protein drug discovery and development, peptide and protein expression or synthesis, protein design and engineering, and outsourcing R & D along with talent search. The conference will take the form of lectures, workshops, round table conferences and posters. It is our hope to provide an alternative exciting event in Asia Pacific Rim that updates the current trend and business model for the peptide and protein professionals. A crucial aspect of our never ending endeavors is to find solutions to difficult scientific problems, and our ultimate goal is to support translation of scientific discovery into application or therapeutics.

In addition, this major international event will be held in the modern city of Shenzhen, a wonderful location adjacent to Hong Kong. Here, you will have great opportunities to experience the traditional Chinese culture and custom while enjoying the delicious oriental food and natural beauty in Pearl River Triangle Zone in southern China.
