COST is celebrating the International Year of Chemistry with its fourth edition of the COST-ESF High-level Research Conference series on Natural Products that will take place in September 2011 in Italy.

Natural products have provided, and continue to provide, the most challenging target structures for the advancement of the science of synthesis. Current efforts are devoted to provide efficient processes that allow the selective synthesis of natural products and their analogs for the application in biological chemistry and as potential drug candidates. Innovation at the interface between chemistry and medicine relies on selective molecules.

The fourth conference in the series of highly successful ESF-COST High-Level Research Conference on Natural Products Chemistry, Biology and Medicine, held in an exquisite location allowing complete concentration on science without distractions from outside, continues the tradition of presenting world leading science in its subject area. Keynote lectures from eminent scientist are interspersed with invited talks and shorter presentations as well as poster sessions to foster discussion and exchange of ideas among scientists at all levels in their professional development. Special financial support is directed at selected Early Stage Researchers.

The conference will feature lectures by invited high-level speakers, short talks by young and early stage researchers, poster sessions and open discussion periods as well as a forward look panel discussion about future developments.


Please submit your application no later than 12 June 2011, in order to present your latest research outcome, or discuss current scientific understanding and recent developments with your peers. Grants are available for young researchers to cover the conference fee and travel costs partially.
