In its fifth year, CHI’s conference is covering the journey from identifying PPI interaction pairs all the way to successfully developing a PPI inhibitor. Along the way, many questions need to be answered and obstacles need to be addressed such as challenges the binding sites are presenting, modulation of PPI, predicting PPI modes identifying novel inhibitors and what can be done to target PPI successfully.
