2º Workshop Recent Advances in the Chemistry of Natural Products

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), within the scope of the BIOTA–FAPESP Program, invites you to the


November 9th, 2017 (8:00 a.m)
Espaço APAS - Rua Pio XI, 1200 - Alto da Lapa - São Paulo

The workshop aims to present to the Brazilian scientific community the latest advances in research in chemistry, biosynthesis and analysis techniques in the research of natural products of plants, microorganisms and marine organisms, as well as to raise awareness among the scientific community of the importance and possibilities for modern and advanced research in the chemistry of natural products, in order to foster their development in Brazil. It will also be relevant to discuss the future of research in natural products chemistry in Brazil and possibilities for collaborations between Brazil and International Institutions, inserting our research on natural products in a global context.

The meeting will have presentations by outstanding researchers, on the “state of the art” research on natural product chemistry in the world.
