2007 International Symposium on Medicinal and Nutraceutical Plants

Beginning date
3/19/2007

Ending date
3/23/2007

Summary
This symposium is designed to bring together medicinal / nutraceutical plants workers and researchers/scientists representing university/academic, government, and private sector laboratories working with various aspects of medicinal / nutraceutical (medicinal and aromatics, herbs, spices, and fruits and vegetables with health benefits) plants research in temperate, subtropical and tropical climates. It is expected that the 2007 MANP Symposium participants will come from various developed countries with advanced research programs, as well as from the developing countries around the globe with a wealth of diverse medicinal and nutraceutical plants species.

This Symposium encourages all those people associated with medicinal/nutraceutical plants production, research and marketing to come together for meaningful discussions and networking on contemporary innovations and developments. Participants will benefit from researchers who are active in the development of biotechnology tools for medicinal and nutraceutical plant species in temperate and tropical areas and those endeavouring a host of other horticultural species having health benefits. This is truly an under-researched and highly diversified group of economically important botanical species that receive only a limited attention in major discipline-based conferences due mainly to limited participation by the specialty plant scientists/researchers. Sessions devoted to market and regulatory issues, research and production, biotechnology and plants improvement, phytochemicals and bioactivity evaluation, and consumer acceptance certainly recognize this symposium as unique in its scope of interest.

Areas to be covered include:

This symposium will also provide a platform for discussing the increasing global trend of using botanical medicines.
