The 3rd edition will take place in July 2019 in Naples, from the 1st to the 5th of July 2019 (www.issnp.org)
The School on Natural Products is sponsored by the Division of Organic Chemistry of the Italian Chemical Society (SCI) and organized under the direction of the Department of Pharmacy (University of Naples), the Stazione Zoologica "Anton Dohrn", and the Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry (ICB-CNR).
Following the tradition of the Scuola delle Sostanze Naturali e di Chimica Biorganica “Luigi Minale”, founded in Naples in 2003, the International Summer School on Natural Products (ISSNP) is dedicated to Professor Luigi Minale and Professor Ernesto Fattorusso, pioneers of the chemistry of marine natural products and founders of the Neapolitan school of organic natural products chemists.
The main focus theme of the ISSNP is on both established and emerging areas of research at the cutting-edge of organic chemistry inspired to natural products in their all aspects. Key topics addressed include medicinal chemistry optimization, target oriented discovery, biosynthesis and biotechnological aspects, chemical ecology, nutraceutical, new analytical methods.
The School is mainly directed to graduate students, Ph.D. students and young researchers coming both from University and Industry.
All students are expected to submit an abstract and may apply for a short oral communication and/or a poster presentation. The poster communications are briefly presented by the authors during lively open sessions, in line with the main aim of the school to create a friendly environment and provide the opportunity to young scientists, post-docs and PhD students to meet leading scientists of high international repute in a very relaxed and informal atmosphere.
