Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to announce that the International Workshop on ‘Drugs Development from Herbs and Marine Medicinal Materials’ will be held at Hai Phong, Vietnam by Centre for Science & Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) jointly with the Hai Phong University of Medicine and Pharmacy from 10th to 12th December, 2018. On behalf of the organizing committee, we are honored and delighted to invite scientists from all non-aligned and other developing countries to attend this event.

Nature has been the major sources of lead components in drugs research and development. Recently, there has been a fast-growing interest in the study of natural products of marine origins. Although still facing many challenges, marine natural products are forecasted to play a central role in new drug development programs. Pharmaceutical industries in advanced nations have exploited the exquisite and complex structures, the potent and often highly selective ability to bind to biological targets of natural molecules for their products and business developments. However, even though most of the non-aligned and other developing countries possess great biodiversity and high potential for natural products research, they have still not been able to effectively utilize their valuable resources for new drug developments.

International Workshop on ‘Drugs Development from Herbs and Marine Medicinal Materials’ will be held in order to update and evolve strategies for the utilization of herbal and marine natural resources in new drug developments; foster the great benefits of natural products, especially marine natural resources. Besides, delegates will experience warm Vietnamese hospitality and opportunities to taste Vietnamese history, cultural diversity and scenic beauty in Viet Nam. 

We are looking forward to seeing you in Hai Phong.
