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.
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.
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;
utilization of bioresources (bioactive compounds from natural
sources, analytical techniques in their separation and identification,
lead generation, drug discovery and development, and drug-resistant
integration and conservation of bioresources
environmental, economic, social, and ethnic perspectives
and traditional systems of medicine (ayurveda and sidhha)
in nutrition, ecology, and cultures
generation of smart and novel materials, innovative technologies
in organic synthesis, environmentally benign synthetic strategies
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.
