#2 Natural Products Conference

Interface of Science and Technology as Applied to Natural Product Research

04 Dec 2015 - 07 Dec 2015

Budapest, Hungary

Synopsis

Working with a natural product compound has always been a challenge. From extraction, purification, isolation, structure characterization and chemical synthesis, natural product research has faced many pitfalls and hurdles that can be overcome by an intelligent use of analytical technology. This conference will focus on key areas of natural product research.

Key Sessions

  • Synthesis of complex natural products
  • Biosynthetic pathways
  • Contribution of women scientists’ in natural product research
  • Natural product consortiums
  • Marine natural products
  • Technology

Learning Objectives

Exposure to the vast array of analytical technology that is or can be used in natural product research.
 

Target Audience

Anyone that is involved in natural product research from graduate students to full professors. There will be a diverse represenation of delegates from Europe, USA and Asia.
