Biodiversity and Natural Products

26—31 January 2004, Delhi, India !! IUPAC sponsored !!

The International Conference on Biodiversity and Natural Products: Chemistry and Medical Applications will be a joint meeting of the 4th International Conference on Biodiversity and the 24th International Symposium on Chemistry of Natural Products.

Biodiversity is a multidimensional, complex issue, which requires internationally coordinated attention from various fields of chemical, physical, medical, environmental, social, and life sciences. Natural resources, and the biologically active constituents derived from them, play vitally important roles in improving the quality of human life. Different parts of the globe have varying endemic biological resources, many of which are being rapidly depleted. Thus, there is an urgent need for mutually advantageous international cooperation in the appropriate, sustainable, and innovative utilization of bioresources.

In view of this situation, the University of Delhi and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research are jointly organizing a conference to bring together leading experts and researchers from all over the world to assess current ideas and research and develop strategies for the fields listed below:

  • biodiversity and bioprospecting (genetic, molecular, and chemical diversity; flora and fauna; herbs and spices; marine; and microorganisms)
  • innovative utilization of bioresources (bioactive compounds from natural sources, analytical techniques in their separation and identification, lead generation, drug discovery and development, and drug-resistant microbial infections)
  • integration and conservation of bioresources
  • environmental, economic, social, and ethnic perspectives of biodiversity
  • biodiversity and traditional systems of medicine (ayurveda and sidhha)
  • biodiversity in nutrition, ecology, and cultures
  • generation of smart and novel materials, innovative technologies in organic synthesis, environmentally benign synthetic strategies

The participants shall include experts and researchers from around the globe working in above areas in Universities; Government and National Laboratories; Food, Nutrition, Flavor, Dyes, Pharmaceutical and Agrobased Industries; and Representatives from Communities and Policy-making Bodies.
