Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the XVI MaNaPro and XI ECMNP, we would like to cordially invite you to the ‘must-attend’ conference of 2019: the XVI International Symposium on Marine Natural Products and XV European Congress on Marine Natural Products joint meeting, http://wmnp2019.ipleiria.pt/, to be held in Peniche, Portugal, from September 1st to 5th, 2019.

Young scientists in the marine natural products (MNP) field from all over the world are especially encouraged to participate. Senior experts, rising MNP stars and early scientists will present their results in a combination of plenary lectures, contributed oral communications, and poster sessions.

The joint XVI MaNaPro and XI ECMNP meeting includes the following topics:

  • Isolation and structure elucidation of marine natural products;
  • Biosynthesis and chemical synthesis of marine natural products;
  • Marine chemical ecology and ecosystem functioning;
  • Marine natural products in chemical biology and biotechnology;
  • Drug discovery and development.

To maximize the impact of this conference to the marine natural products community, the chairs of this conference are organizing a Special Issue of Marine Drugs dedicated to this symposium entitled “Selected Papers from the XVI MaNaPro and XI ECMNP”. We kindly invite the attendees to contribute manuscripts for research papers or reviews for this Special Issue of Marine Drugs.

* Each submission will enjoy a 20% discount on APC, after accepted.
