Following the success of last years international conference at the SCI in London, The Protein-Protein Interactions Network (PPI-Net, www.ppi-net.org) are excited to announce the 4th Young Researchers Symposium on PPIs, at the University of Leeds to be held 19th of September. This symposium aims to provide a platform for early career researchers from a broad range of backgrounds to come together, share their work and discuss the latest research on PPIs and their inhibition. In addition to our excellent guest speakers there will also be opportunities for young researchers to present their work through talks and posters chosen from abstracts so please submit yours when you register.  Registration is Free.  

Registration in advance at www.poppi.website or click here

Abstract submission deadline 20th July
