Welcome to the official website for the 3rd Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Natural Products: From BioTechnology to NanoMedicine (BioNat-III) which will take place on 4 - 6 January 2014 in Cairo, Egypt.
The purpose of the BioNat conference is to promote discussion and interaction among academics, researchers and professionals in the field of natural products (metabolic networks, vitamins, carotenoids, flavonoids, anti-nutrients, toxins, products of plant-associated microorganisms and bioactive proteins).
Attention is also devoted to the herbal medicine, plant-derived drugs, phytopharmaceuticals, synthetic drugs, ethno-pharmacology, biodiversity as well as legislations and research strategies.
Planned open panel discussions and break-out sessions on key thematic areas are sure to energize the participants in defining the drug discovery and development landscape, and offer ways and means to de-risk the patent cliff experienced by the pharmaceutical industry in recent years. Several eminent scientists are expected to attend; this will surely contribute in advancing the recent scientific knowledge.
In line with previous events, the BioNat 2014 will highlight the recent findings and visions about Plant, Microbial and Marine Natural Products.
