The Scientist brings together a panel of experts to discuss tools and strategies for characterizing natural products and testing their roles as drug candidates.

Historically, natural products have played an important role in therapeutic treatment. The application of analytical methods, including chromatography, spectroscopy, structural biology, genomics, biochemistry and molecular biology, enables screening of natural products to identify novel therapeutics and analyze their biological activities. The Scientist brings together a panel of experts to discuss tools and strategies for characterizing natural products and testing their roles as drug candidates. Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions and seek advice on topics that are unique to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • The importance and evolving role of natural products in drug discovery
  • In search of natural products: tools and strategies
  • Considerations for the identification, isolation, and testing of natural products and their active compounds
