Special Issue "Selected Papers from the 2017 Venoms to Drugs Conference"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2018)
The 2017 Venoms to Drugs meeting will be held at the Peppers Noosa Resort, Queensland, 9–14 October, 2017. The conference will focus on venom from cone snails, scorpions, spiders, snakes, and other species continue to provide an immense reservoir of potent bioactive peptides that target specific enzymes, ion channels, and receptors. As such, they represent major sources of lead compounds for both the development of pharmacological tools and novel drugs. This Special Issue aims to bring together active scholars and researchers to present their current scholarly work in venoms to drugs.
