Our special thanks go to our invited speakers for their great inspiring talks and to all those who submitted abstracts and presented their interesting data in oral sessions or as posters. Only with your help and contributions it was possible to put together a scientifically exciting program covering the various aspects in the field of NPY research. It was a great pleasure meeting you all, exchanging new ideas and taking the opportunity to meet old and new friends.

We would also like to thank all members of our scientific committee for their excellent input. Finally we would like to thank all sponsors who supported the participation of invited speakers and young researchers.

Looking forward to meeting you all at the next NPY Meeting.

The neuropeptide Y (NPY) family of biologically active peptides NPY, peptide YY (PYY) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP) comprise a multi-ligand / multi-receptor system together with a set of different GPCR types known as Y1, Y2, Y4, Y5 and Y6 in mammals. This system influences a wide range of essential physiological key functions, e.g. food intake, memory retention, gastrointestinal transit, regulation of blood pressure, and is known to be associated with a variety of major human diseases such as obesity, epilepsy, mood disorders, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular complications, and cancer. Combining basic knowledge from a multidisciplinary perspective including biochemical, cellular biology, genetic, and medical aspects is a prerequisite for an improved understanding of the NPY system and exploiting its significant potential as a therapeutic target for the treatment of disorders.

The 11th NPY-PYY-PP Meeting in Leipzig, Germany, August 22 to 26, 2015 brouht together speakers representing world leading academic and industrial experts working in all areas of research affected by NPY and its related peptides. The meeting provided an excellent opportunity to accelerate scientific discoveries by providing a forum for discussion of the latest top-quality research, share novel ideas, foster new collaborations and pump-prime new lines of investigation in an interdisciplinary manner.
