1st Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Marine Natural Products (EMCMNP-I)

Location: Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt)
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2008-10-31    
End Date: 2008-11-04

Event Description:
The idea of the 1st Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Marine Natural Products (EMCMNP-I) has been initiated between Mediterranean and European colleagues in order to strengthen the scientific collaboration between scientists in these countries and to open new channel for scientific collaboration between these countries in different areas of marine natural products.

The conference activities will include different aspects of the research on Marine Natural Products, offering opportunities to share multidisciplinary information among chemists, marine and molecular biologists, biochemists, ecologists, pharmacologists and those in related areas.

Given the enormous economic importance of the marine habitats in the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, one of the main aims of the EMCMNP-I is to encourage research on the basic and applied aspects of marine natural products studies, including the role in marine ecosystem functioning, the development of research tools devoted to defense and conservation of marine environments and the application for pharmaceutical and cosmoaceutical industry as well as marine aquaculture.

Plenary and invited lectures will be held by leading figures in order to have cutting edge contributions in the different scientific areas and meet the interest from colleagues from all over the world. EMCMNP-I is especially designed for young researchers and the Poster sessions will be highlighted with a number of contributions that will be selected for short oral presentations.

The conference is endorsed by MarBEF under standard conditions, i.e. per member max 1 participant can book the costs on their MarBEF accunt up to a max of 1000.
