International 2nd Biennial Conference

 

New Developments in Drug Discovery from Natural Products and
Traditional Medicines

(20th 24th November, 2010)

 

The conference will be held at National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER), Phase X, Sector-67, S.A.S. Nagar 160062, India. The conference will focus on frontiers of natural product and traditional medicines based drug discovery programs; participation of the pharmaceutical industries in natural drug development programme; and possible collaboration of scientists/researchers globally for drug discovery from natural products. The registration for participation is open from March 1, 2010. For further details, please contact Prof K. K. Bhutani, Organizing Secretary/Convener, Department of Natural Products,
National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER), Sector-67, SAS Nagar 160062, India. E-mail: ddnptm@niper.ac.in; kkbhutani@niper.ac.in. Telefax: 0172-2232208; 0172-2292036 (Websites: www.niper-ddnptm.com; www.naturalproducts-niper.com; www.niper.gov.in).
