From the conference website: "The 2014 Gordon Research Conference on Marine Natural Products will highlight progressive research on the chemistry and biology of natural product chemicals from the marine environment. Featured topics will include advances in molecular characterization, biomedical applications, biotechnology, genomics, chemical ecology, molecular pharmacology, and chemical biology to reflect the ever-evolving breadth of this dynamic field. The conference will feature outstanding investigators from academia, industry and the government, and will provide opportunities for junior scientists and graduate students to present their work in poster format. Some poster presenters will be selected for short talks. One of the hallmarks of this biennial conference is its friendly and collegial atmosphere that facilitates the exchange of ideas with leaders in the field that often lead to cross-disciplinary collaborations. We look forward to your participation."
