Aims of the Society
ItPS is a non-profit association with the aim of coordinating, supporting and representing, at national level, researchers involved in peptide science, to promote the advancement of research and education in this area. To meet these objectives, ItPS promotes and supports initiatives aimed at favouring contacts and exchanges between researchers who are involved in the aforementioned studies within the context of various disciplines, as well as initiatives for didactic and scientific dissemination of the peptides’s science (article 2 of the Statute).
In June 2014, during the 14th Naples Worshop on Bioactive Peptides, Prof. Paolo Rovero, Italian representative of the European Peptide Society, convened an informal meeting with Italian participants to start discussing the possibility of creating a group that could bring together active researchers in the field of peptide science, also exploiting the information present on the Italian Peptide Network site, previously created by Prof. Paolo Grieco. In July 2015, Prof. Claudio Toniolo and Prof. Rovero convened a meeting in Florence with 16 representatives of various universities, CNR and Italian companies, to initiate the formal procedures for setting up the Society. In October 2015 these Founding Members formally constituted the Society, with the drafting of a Statute, its registration with the Revenue Agency, with the stipulation of the Constitutive Act and with the appointment of an interim Executive Committee with the task to collect the registrations of interested colleagues and to carry out all the necessary procedures.
