Today, almost hundred peptides and proteins are in the pharmaceutical world market, and much more are in several clinical phases. Although in the past the pharmaceutical industries had reduced their interest in peptide and protein research, the last decades they rekindled the interest in those chemical entities, due to novel strategy developments, advances in the areas of formulation, enhanced drug delivery technologies, and most importantly to the current chemical technological accomplishments. The objective of this Special Issue of Molecules is to highlight the last breakthroughs in the Chemical Synthesis of Peptides and Proteins.
