About the Event
PEGS Europe is the largest European event covering all aspects of protein and antibody engineering. In 2016, for the fifth year in a row, a record number of delegates participated in PEGS Europe, as more than 800 attendees from 36 countries convened in beautiful Lisbon, Portugal to discuss the latest advances in protein and antibody engineering. 38% of attendees were Scientists and another 25% were Executives or Directors. 21% of attendees were from Big Pharma, 51% from Biotech, and 18% from Academia. The 2017 event will feature:
Make the most of your time in Lisbon! Maximize your educational and networking opportunities by adding on one or more interactive, hands-on short courses. Covering some of the hottest topics in the field, these short courses are taught by leading researchers from industry and academia.
Cambridge Healthtech Institute Training Seminars offer real-life case studies, problems encountered and solutions applied, and extensive coverage of the basic science underlying each topic. Experienced Training Seminar instructors offer a mix of formal lectures, interactive discussions and activities to help attendees maximize their learning experiences. These immersive trainings will be of value to scientists from industry and academic research groups who are entering new fields - and to those working in supporting roles that will benefit from an in-depth briefing on a specific aspect of the industry. Choose from six Training Seminars at PEGS Europe!
