Thanks to the help of our Editor in Chief Prof. Fernando Albericio, EDS journal sponsored and was promoted at "6th Workshop on Therapeutic Peptides for Bioapplications" held in Chile on January 11-12, 2024.
The workshop stands as a significant event focusing on the design and use of therapeutic peptides. Active participation from renowned researchers in the fields of peptide synthesis and characterization, pharmaceutical applications of peptides, the use of peptides in biosensors and nanotechnology, and functional peptides in hydrolysates, coupled with the engagement of new researchers, contributes to expanding and promoting the network.
At the conference, Prof. Fernando Albericio and Prof.Fanny Guzman, who is the founder of the event from Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaiso, which was where the event took place, introduced EDS and their special issue launched for the conference on EDS: "Bioactive Peptides: Pioneering Innovations in Latin American Research”. This introduction garnered positive feedback, and the majority of attending scientists working on peptides expressed their intention to contribute to the special issue. Additionally, there was a proposal to organize the next installment of the event as the first Latin American meeting on the topic. There was also consideration given to establishing a Latin American peptide society, and this special issue will play a role in building a consensus among scientists working on the subject, potentially identifying members for such a society.
We believe that through Prof. Fernando Albericio and Prof.Fanny Guzman's promotion at the conference, more researchers will know and pay attention to EDS. In the future, we will continue to promote more conference opportunities to increase the exposure of the journal. So we also welcome more experts to join us to promote the journal, and we will provide every support.
