Third European Conference for Marine Natural Products

Jan 23, 2002

3rd European Conference on Marine Natural Products Munich, 15-20 September 2002


The 3rd European Conference on Marine Natural Products (15-20 September 2002) follows its predecessors held in Athens (1997) and in Santiago de Compostela (1999).

It is the aim of the conference to bring together young and senior researchers for active discussions on most recent advances in the field. "Marine Natural Products Chemistry" as an experimental science is - guided by experienced scientists - enthusiastically carried out and driven by younger researchers. Therefore, the conference is also a platform of scientific exchange on the practical laboratory level.

Topics of the conference:

  • New marine natural products
  • Methods of structure elucidation
  • Total synthesis of marine natural products
  • Marine microorganisms
  • Biosynthesis of marine natural products
  • Functions of marine natural products
  • Marine natural products in drug research


The following distinguished scientists have agreed to give Plenary Lectures:

New marine natural products Nobuhiro Fusetani, Tokyo
Raymond J. Andersen, Vancouver
Marine microorganisms William Fenical, San Diego
Biosynthesis Russell Kerr, Boca Raton
