Protein-Protein Interactions 2019 was held at the University of Leeds from 4-5 April. The event was organised by SCI’s Fine Chemicals Group and the RSC Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector in association with PPI-Net, and is aimed at all scientists with an interest in the understanding or manipulation of protein-protein interactions. Chemical Science was pleased to support the conference along with MedChemComm, another Royal Society of Chemistry journal.
The Chemical Science poster prize was won by Lydia Dewis from the University of Bristol for her poster on ‘The Synthesis, Computation and NMR Spectroscopy to Design Conformationally Controlled α-Helix Mimetics to Inhibit Protein-Protein Interactions’.
The MedChemComm poster prize was won by Devon Legge from the University of Leeds for her poster on ‘A Chemical Approach the Interaction of Host and Microbe via Formylpeptide Signals’.
Congratulations to Lydia and Devon!
