One of the most exciting new therapeutic modalities to emerge in the 21st century has been Targeted Protein Degradation (TPD). In 2021, the Targeted Protein Degradation Market size was valued at USD 400.5 million and is poised to grow from USD 507.0 million in 2022 to USD 3,300.0 million by 2030 and so has attracted interest from academia, non-profit organisations through to CROs and small and large pharma.

This multidisciplinary meeting aims to present the latest developments in the design, biology, chemistry and ADME in TPD within the general themes of PROTACS (including non-oncology targets), Molecular Glues and non-PROTAC degraders. We aim to highlight the newest in enabling technologies such as computational techniques, Direct to Biology, HT synthesis (click, photochemistry etc) and structural biology methods.

Who should attend
The meeting aims is targeted at academic and industrial scientists engaged in all aspects of research into the ubiquitin proteasome pathway and those interested in broadening their knowledge in this rapidly expanding field.

Call for Abstracts
Submissions for oral and/or poster presentations are welcomed around the conference general themes. Abstracts should be maximum 300 words indicating title, authors, institution and prefer­ence for presentation option (Oral presentation and/or Poster) and sent to with the subject line “Targeting Protein Degradation 2024 – abstract submission”. Presentation slots are inevitably limited and will be allocated to achieve a balanced programme. Prizes will be awarded for the best presentation and poster.

Deadline for oral presentations – Friday 31 May 2024 (decisions by end of June)
Deadline for poster presentations – Friday 30 August 2024
