25–29 February 2008
The International Organization for Chemical Sciences in Development and the International Society for the Development of Natural Products are organizing a joint international symposium on Natural Products: Unlimited Resources for the Development of Drugs, Cosmetics, and Food. The meeting will be held from 25–29 February 2008 by the majestic Chobe River in Kasane, one of the most scenic places in Botswana.
The aim of the symposium is to bring together scientists from Africa and other areas who are involved in the investigation of African plants. An update will be provided on different aspects of research concerning the chemistry, pharmacology, and clinical studies of African plants. Special lectures are planned on the current state and future trends of African traditional medicine. Participants from academia, public health organizations, and industry will attend. The symposium will feature 20 plenary lectures—from Africa and from other parts of the world. In addition, there will be contributions in the form of oral presentations and poster sessions. A two-day Workshop on Hyphenated HPLC Techniques will be held at the Department of Chemistry, University of Botswana, Gaborone, before the symposium (22–23 February 2008).
