Join Us!

Membership is open to graduate students, professionals, and retired professionals, with an interest in peptides or a related scientific field.

As part of the membership application process, we ask that you indicate your level of involvement in the peptide science community or in a potentially related field. If you have published in the peptide field, or in one that you consider could have useful interactions with peptide science, please indicate this by giving us a link to your list of publications or the DOI's of up to five of them.

If you do not yet have any publications, we ask that you arrange for a letter of reference to be sent on your behalf to the society at our contact us page, indicating your involvement in the field. For example, if you are a graduate student, an email from a professor stating that you are a student would be appropriate. This will allow the APS to properly process your application.

Please note that answers to fields marked with an asterisk are required.
