The following aspects of natural product sciences will be covered:
- Isolation and structural elucidation of natural products
- Synthesis of natural products
- Pharmacology and bioassay on natural products
- Biotechnology for natural products development
- Development in spectroscopic techniques relevant to the field
- Rational drug designing based on natural products
- Medicinal plants cultivation and conservation
- Standardization and safety of herbal medicines
- Clinical trials on natural product-based drug candidates
- Chemistry of marine and microorganisms
- Ethnobotany and IPR issues
- Applicants of metabolomics and genomics techniques in natural products sciences.
