Natural Products: From Discovery to Therapeutic Applications

Wednesday, March 18, 2020, 8:30 AM - 5:20 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

Presented By

The Chemical Biology Discussion Group

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

Naturally occurring compounds have been used medicinally for centuries and continue to be a rich source of novel therapeutics, including antibiotics and cancer drugs. However, it is often challenging to determine the targets of these molecules and elucidate their mechanisms of action. Moreover, detailed understanding of the complex chemistry underlying the biosynthesis of these compounds is critical for functional studies as well as to derive optimized drugs. This one day symposium will discuss the latest research in natural products with a focus on their discovery, mechanisms of action and therapeutic applications across a wide range of disease indications.

Call for Abstracts

Abstract submissions are invited for a poster session. For complete submission instructions, please visit our online portal. The deadline for abstract submission is Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
