Functional Molecules from Natural Sources
6–8 July 2009
Magdalen College, Oxford, UK
Naturally occurring compounds have been, and continue to be, an important source of new leads and commercially successful products for various industrial sectors, notably pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. The last decade has, however, seen many challenges as well as new opportunities for the industrial utilization of molecules form natural sources, including the birth of “neutraceuticals” and “cosmeceuticals.”
The Functional Molecules from Natural Sources conference, being organized by The Royal Society of Chemistry, follows two earlier successful meetings organized by the Biotechnology Group of Sussex in 1996 and at the University of St. Andrews in 1999. This conference, which will take place 6–8 July 2009 at Magdalen College in Oxford, UK, aims to highlight current trends, challenges, and successes in the exploitation of natural products.
The conference will be held in the historic setting of Magdalen College in the University of Oxford. It will address significant progress and future directions for natural products.
