Protein & Peptide Science Group

RSC Protein & Peptide Science

The Protein and Peptide Science Group (PPSG) is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.


The interests of the Group have developed to cover:
  • Protein structure determination,
  • structure prediction,
  • molecular modeling and dynamics,
  • protein separation and characterisation,
  • protein biosynthesis,
  • protein expression,
  • modification and targeting,
  • combinatorial synthesis,
  • protein design and engineering,
  • drug-protein and protein-protein interactions,
  • and protein structure-function.  


To maintain the logical progression of molecular science through chemistry into biochemistry, biology, medicine, plant and food science. Thus, it has an interdisciplinary approach, representing the Protein science interests of chemists, molecular biologists, structural biologists, Peptide chemists and biologists, medics, members of the biotechnology, food and pharmaceutical industries.


We also have an online community, which is based on MyRSC, for anyone who shares our interests.

Get Involved

We are always looking for new members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary.
