The International Symposium on Marine Natural Products (MaNaPro) happened for the first time in 1975 in the city of Aberdeen, Scotland, aiming to promote the discussion and the exchange of scientists in various aspects involving research on marine natural products, a field that was in its infancy, but it was already universally distinct from more traditional research on natural products of terrestrial origin. Since then, this series of conferences, usually triennial frequency, has been a great success in the area, with a primary focus on studies related to ecology and marine biotechnology. Over the past 40 years there have been 14 editions held in several countries.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to participate and present your work on different aspects of the marine natural products field. The program includes 24 invited speakers from several countries, embracing head scientists from the Academy and Industry.
IMBA organizes the International Marine Biotechnology Conferences (IMBCs). The IMBCs are widely recognized as the premier conference in marine biotechnology in the world, bringing together world leaders in the field since 1989. With extensive and wide-sweeping support from both the private and public sectors, all IMBCs can boast having excellent attendance by local and international scientists.
The 11th International Marine Biotechnology Conference (IMBC) will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, USA from August 29 - September 2, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore's Historic Inner Harbor. The conference theme is "Health, Wealth and Innovation".
