Aims of the Society
The ItPS is a non-profit organization with the aim to coordinate, support and to represent in Italy researchers who work in the peptide science, to promote the advancement of research and training in this field. To achieve this, the ItPS promotes and supports initiatives to contacts and exchanges between researchers within different disciplines, who cultivate the aforementioned studies, as well as educational initiatives and dissemination of scientific diffusion of peptide science (Article 2 of the Statute).
Foundation of Italian Peptide Society
In June 2014, during the 14th Naples Worshop on Bioactive Peptides, Prof. Paolo Rovero, Italian representative in the 'European Peptide Society, convened an informal meeting of Italian participants to start discussing the possibility of creating a group that would join together researchers active in science of peptides, exploiting the information collected on the site Italian peptide Network, created by Prof. Paolo Grieco in previous years. In July 2015, Prof. Claudio Toniolo and Prof. Rovero convened in Florence a meeting of 16 representatives from different universities, CNR and Italian Companies, to begin the formal procedures of the istitution of the Italian Peptide Society (ItPS). In October 2015 these Founders have formally established the Italian Peptide Society, with the drafting of a constitution, its registration with the Inland Revenue, with the signing of the Memorandum and with the appointment of an interim Executive Council with the task to gather applications from interested colleagues and conduct any necessary practice.
