Multivalency is one of Nature’s governing principles for achieving strong and selective biomolecular recognition. Many biological processes rely on the cooperative effects associated with the occurrence of multivalent interactions. Consequently, there is an enormous interest in the development of chemical multivalent systems that display similar features for innovative applications in fields as various as diagnostics, drug discovery, materials science and nanotechnology. On this one day symposium some of the key contributors in Europe will illustrate the current developments and progress in the field.

We have reached the maximum  number of participants for this event. Thank you all for your interest and we are much looking forward to meeting you soon in Padova. Registration is no longer possible.
