The American Peptide Society

The American Peptide Society (APS), a nonprofit scientific and educational organization founded in 1990, provides a forum for advancing and promoting knowledge of the chemistry and biology of peptides.

The approximately one thousand members of the Society come from North America and from more than thirty other countries throughout the world. Establishment of the American Peptide Society was a result of the rapid worldwide growth that has occurred in peptide-related research, and of the increasing interaction of peptide scientists with virtually all fields of science.

Welcome to the 23rd American Peptide Symposium

Hilton Waikoloa VillageWe invite you to attend the 23rd American Peptide Symposium which will convene on June 22 – 27, 2013 at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The Symposium will follow its long standing tradition of featuring talks by leading scientists from the academic and industry communities sharing current and compelling peptide research. The distinguished lectures will be enhanced by poster presentations from emerging and established scientists.

The international setting was strategically chosen to promote interactions between academic and industrial scientists as well as to catalyze discussions between investigators and sponsors/exhibitors from around the world. The program content, including formal presentations and informal get-togethers, is designed to advance the sharing of knowledge between students and senior scientists and amongst researchers across a multitude of disciplines.

In addition, we are proud that the 23rd APS will be held in conjunction with the 6th International Peptide Symposium.

Aloha, and we look forward to seeing you in 2013,

David Lawrence and Marcey Waters



The Hilton Waikoloa Village

The 23rd American Peptide Symposium will be held at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort, which is located on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The Hilton Waikoloa features 1,240 guest rooms and suites, along with a host of various amenities.

The Grand Ballrom

All formal presentations will be held in a ballroom adjacent to the poster and exhibit areas. After spending the day immersed in intense scientific sessions, Symposium participants can join colleagues in the beautiful and relaxed setting of the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort. The seclusion of the Village property will make it possible to continue the conversations sparked by the day’s presentations.
