The relatively new field of Protein-Protein Interaction (PPI) is experiencing fantastic growth in the field of drug discovery. Since promises of combinatorial chemistry and screens based on reporter systems for receptor libraries have failed, big pharma has taken a step back and is no longer investing in R&D as heavily. 

Although PPI has been around for a while as a field, it is an exciting and dynamic category of drug targets. The key concepts of PPI are to understand how proteins interact, to understand why inhibiting them is beneficial (anti-proliferative, anti-inflammatory), and how to identify molecules that block the interactions as treatment strategies. 

These concepts and much more will be covered at the inaugural Protein-Protein Interaction Conference. Below are the topics and panels for this year's event.

Sessions of the conference include:

  1. Theory & Computation
    Innovative Computational Approaches & Technologies
    Theory, Docking & Encounter Complexes
  2. Design & Evolution
    Novel Scaffolds and Inhibitors of PPI
    PPI Evolution & Design
  3. Biophysical Studies of PPIs
    Non-Specific Interactions and Protein Crowding
  4. Protein-Protein Interactions as Drug Targets
    Preclinical & Basic Research Applications
    Novel Advances is SMIPPIs Research
  5. Protein Interactions in the Membrane
    Membrane Proteins & Large Complexes
  6. Networks of Protein-Protein Interactions 
    New Methods for PPI Screening
  7. Modulation of PPIs
    Technologies & New Approaches

There will also be several interactive Panel Discussions on:

  1. Industry & Academia Collaborations
  2. Community Data Sharing - Standardization & Challenges
The conference will run parallel with 3 other information-packed conference as part of the Protein Discovery Summit:
Antibody and Protein Therapeutics
Protein Expression & Formulation
2nd Protein Kinases and Drug Design
