Special Issue in Marine Drugs: Marine Natural Products against Coronaviruses
With the foundation of a thousand-year-old tradition, China and Italy are recognized leaders in the research fields of natural product chemistry, natural product synthesis/biosynthesis, and in the discovery of innovative medicines from natural sources. The Sino–Italian Symposium on Bioactive Natural Products (SISBNP) is held annually in, alternately, China and Italy. The aim of such academic events is to share advanced ideas in the field of natural product sciences and to appreciate the relevant breakthroughs that may promote the development of drug discovery chemistry with indispensable significance for human survival.
This Marine Drugs Collection will provide a platform for the symposium attendees to publish papers with a particular focus on natural products isolated from marine invertebrates and marine microorganisms, potentially useful as biological tools or as lead compounds for the development of new drugs. All submissions will be evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief or an appropriate Editorial Board Member and go through strict peer-review before publication.
Prof. Orazio Taglialatela-Scafati
