Ownership of PPI-Net has been transferred to the EPSRC Programme Grant being led by Prof. Andy Wilson, University of Leeds.
The PPI-Net Young Researchers Symposium has taken place on 13th September at Leeds University. The aim of the symposium was 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. Michelle Arkin of the University of California, San Francisco, and Luc Brunsveld of the Eindhoven University of Technology both delivered excellent Plenary lectures.
Congratulations to the winners of the prizes!
